STARS FOR GOD



Lord let me be a star for you,

A bright and glorious star,

Shining bright so I am seen

By people near and far.


Only you can make me shine

The way I ought to do,

For I am dull and hopeless

A sinner through and through.


When Your Spirit lights me up

The darkness disappears

The flame of love takes its place

And banishes all my fears.


Then the burning  deep inside

Lights up the whole of me

People wonder who I am

When this is clear to see.


I can tell them follow me

And I can show the way

To find my Lord Jesus Christ

Born in my heart today.


We must be the guides today,

For people near and far

And lead them to the Christ-child

Just like that Bethlehem star


Sister Marian.



What will 2019 hold for me?

I wrote this prayer poem when on an Advent Retreat in 2018.


HERE AM I LORD

PRAYER POEM 2018


Here I am Lord, come to me

Let me be still and simply be.


Let my busy mind be still,

Focussed only on Your will,


Emptied of the selfish I

To pride and anger let me die.


When I'm afraid and want to know.

The ifs and buts and why it's so


And what the future holds for me

And what I'm going on to be,


Just whisper, “That's not for you to know,

Trust in Me and let it go!”


And flood me with Your healing peace

That stays with me and does not cease,


And I will close my eyes in prayer

Content to know that You are there.


In the silence I am free,

And thank You Lord, for loving me!
