Silently My Soul Weeps
A tear fell for my pain
Then a few more
Then they fell for you.
For the afflictions of your soul
The innocence lost
The weeping broken heart
For a love to last.
Then they fell for all
All singed by life’s hard turns
For all its pains and burns
This day I cried, for me, for you, for all.
Everyone is you, everyone is me
There is no other
Together we are bound or we are free.
Where does our help come from?
Seared longings lead to One.
Our Divine Love who gave us form
Only he can heal and bind the eternal wound.
Waiting behind the glistening veil
Time and space stand still.
Anticipating the divine breath of life
To unite, raise and end all strife.
Held in tears is love’s promise
That this love cannot fail
To awaken the soul to eternal bliss
Where suffering no longer prevails.
Love is the cure
And it comes in One
As we are one in him
As he is one in all.
My soul weeps for me, for you, for all and for him.
Yet, my soul rests in suffering’s end.
It served to bring us back into the One.
A return to innocence… perhaps it’s begun.

“What lies before us and what lies behind us are small matters compared to what lies within us. And when we bring what is within out into the world, miracles happen.” — Henry David Thoreau
Expressing your love using verse is a wondrous sight as to me you have progressed beyond the initial phases with the back and forth of reconciling and releasing the past. Words are your muse, both spoken and written, and the ability to construct one which reaches the heart and soul of the reader is a gift I ascribe as of God…
So seeing this form, a Psalm from Rachel as it were shows inwardly your faith is strong enough to make a stand of self as God sees you, as you desire to be and by speaking them out they become powerful…
God spoke and all happened, Jesus spoke the words of God and people were healed, You speak through your shall we say “Fledgling” soul a statement of You…
As we progress, and become one ultimately with God and his design I believe His “tapestry” requires each of us with our own perspective of their journey woven together no 2 threads are alike, but interconnected in Spirit we are reborn as one yet unique souls dwelling in the universe in Love…
Let God Arise, and His Enemies be Scattered!
The Lord’s Blessing
“The Lord bless you…” (Numbers 6:24a). The blessings of God, spiritual and physical, ought never to be taken for granted. This benediction recognizes the source of all good things as being God (cf. James 1:17). No doubt the people under Moses’ leadership thought of the blessings God had promised them if they would continue to obey Him faithfully. He had promised that “if you will diligently obey the Lord your God, being careful to do all His commandments…” that “… all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you.” (Deuteronomy 28:1,2). Then the blessings are described. They would be blessed in city and country; in their offspring and the offspring of their flocks and crops and in protection from their enemies. The Lord would make them “abound in prosperity” (Deuteronomy 28:3-14).
Jesus’ blessings for us today emphasize the spiritual rather than the physical. While He gives certain assurances in the physical realm, His sacrifice on the cross had to do with restoring us to spiritual life and giving us spiritual bread and water so we need never hunger or thirst again (John 6:27-35). Jesus makes a point that the world often overlooks. He could have made it His business to provide physical blessings the way Moses had (vs 31, 32) but Jesus was providing something better. This is because those who emphasize their physical needs and desires over their spiritual needs will only grow hungry again and ultimately perish whether they have something to eat or not. But those who partake of the bread of life will live forever.

Hi Steven, Thank you for your encouraging words. Truly it means so much to me.
So true, it is the spiritual side of life that often goes unattended, yet it is the source of true change for the good. The physical is a reflection of the spiritual. And in that, the spirit is reflected in the physical. This dynamic grows more clearly the more I learn from my own life. We can’t be changed from the outside, (only in a superficial way) but from the inside. Jesus established the potential and showed us the way to this inner transformation … that would heal all – the spiritual and the physical. The more I see into his teachings the more powerful they become to me for the truth they hold. As the Spirit of Truth links them together and integrates their meaning, they paint an incredible picture of our soul journey into a oneness with him and the Father of which he was a part.

Well said… Even Jesus said my kingdom is not of this world, and we are blessed with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. I had a ministering spirit come to me in a dream one time saying to keep my mind focused on that which is above and not on the earthly things. So we should learn to be content in what we have in earthly goods , we can be abased, and we can abound, so whatever trials come our way in this life we have that truth that we can do all things through Christ Jesus who strengthens us and guides us by his spirit of truth.
Isaiah 30:20 And though the Lord give you the bread of adversity, and the water of affliction, yet shall not thy teachers be removed into a corner any more, but thine eyes shall see thy teachers:
21 And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.

I have read it with deep silence and I could not easily wake up as this is what our heavenly fathers wants to hear from his tender flowers of love planted by him for him
May God Bless you,

What a beautiful poem of the heart. As I read it the following verse from the beatitudes came to mind:
“Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.
This mourning we can do with a smile on our face for this mourning as depicted in your poem is an attitude of the heart, one which only wishes the best for all people. As we walk through our valley of the shadow of death, we experience being distant from our “first love” the one to be completed in Him to which we will return. “Until” our journey’s end we are saddened by this “temporary” loss of love as the Shulmanite woman searched for whom her soul loved. Those who have a true heart of faith for the vision of returning to this love of the Father cannot truly rejoice until “all” also have walked their journey in blindness…only to come to the light within their own soul…once again.
It is impossible for one to please God outside of His will and as long as one is separated from Him there is no completion to His plan, thus their is a “weeping”, a mourning, a sadness in seeing the pain of another desiring to be released from the shadow of death. The one’s who have been given this sight to see the love we should have for another, all others, have a true desire to sacrifice all for making a clear path back to the kingdom of heaven. This desire to take on all the beatitudes listed in Matthew 5 and while these attributes are being taken on, our carnal natures are being sacrificed by default for the greater will displace the lesser….for love pushes out all forms of hate. As we sacrifice the attitudes of self we make room by these very sacrifices for the love of God to take up His abode within.
So as you beautifully describe the love we seek, it has not only began, it is complete in Him, we have only to have the veil removed from our eyes for His true love has really never left us, it has only been hidden for awhile behind a fallen blinded veil of flesh where our soul has dwelled for awhile…until her future release from the cords of vanity. This love is the pearl of great price that we possessed and lost in the night. We search for it until we find it…again.
As long as we search for the true, we can be blessed with all things, spiritual or natural, but as Job, we only want to know and desire what will bring us to our Father’s likeness and live by His character. When the true Shepard has left the ninety nine and has found the “very last one” then our mourning will cease for death will have lost it’s very last victim. Then our hope of rejoicing will have found it’s journey’s end for all have left the valley of the shadow of death of this earthly journey never to experience sadness again because all is well and complete.
When one simply desires to only love God and therefore their fellow man as a result this desire covers all hope and accomplishes all things. This is simplicity. It is this simplicity we see in others which lets us know and desire to only want the same for ourselves as we want it for even the “one”.
We thank God for this light.
