Virgin Mary and child JesusLord you know me

Lord, you search me and know me.
Whether I am sitting or standing, you know that,
Far away, you notice my thoughts.
If I walk or sit you see it, you know all my ways.
Yes, before I have a word on my tongue, you know, Lord, completely.
All around you surround me; you put your hand on me.
It is too subtle to understand, it is so great that I cannot comprehend it.
Where shall I go away from your Spirit, where shall I flee?
Do I get up to heaven, you are there, in the kingdom of death, are you there?
Do I take the wings of the morning red and strike down where the sea ends,
You are also there and bring me your right hand.

Search me, God and know my thoughts.
See if I am on the evil road, and lead me on the path of eternity.
From the Bible psalm 139.

I would like to share first verse of a hymn by Eivind Skeie written in 2007.
It is Lord you know my heart:

Lord, you know my heart and my ways on earth.
My thoughts you understand before they are shaped in words.
It is strange to know how you surround me.
Where shall I fly from your face, if I want to escape you?

I have read an article by Pope Francis where he tells a passage of the life of a great saint, Gerolamo. He had a big temper. This had managed to dominate his way of being. He offered the Lord a great deal of work, and prayed:


- "What do you want with me? You have not given me more.
Lord, I have given you this, this and this ..."
- "There is one thing missing."
- "What is missing?"
- "Give me your sins."


It is nice to hear this:

Give me your sins and weaknesses, I will heal and you move on.

Når jeg ikke ser den.

Når jeg går sakte, sakte ...

Når vi er i en vanskelig tid.

Når jeg går forbi noe som hindrer.

Når jeg lærer av andre.

Når alt går bra.

Når jeg velger den rette veien.

Når Gud hjelper oss å finne, 
den rette veien i våre liv.


Herre, kan du være med oss ...

Herre, vi vil være som blomster som åpner seg og sprer vellukt.
Slik vil vi selv åpne våre hjerter til Ditt lys. Lyset gir nåde.

 

I forbindelse med festen for Hellige Birgitta 23. juli.

Vi ber med Birgittas ord:

 

Vis meg veien.

Kom snart og lys opp i min natt!

Som en døende lengter,

Slik lengter jeg etter deg.

Si til min sjel,

at intet du tillater, er uten håp.

Å, Jesus, Guds sønn.

Taus sto du foran dine dommere.

Gi meg å tie inntil jeg har besinnet meg,

på hva jeg skal si og hvordan jeg skal tale.

Vis meg veien, og gjør meg villig til å gå videre.

Så oppfyll da min lengsel og vis meg veien.

Jeg kommer til Deg som den sårete kommer til legen.

Herre, gi mitt hjerte ro.
