“I wait for you, O LORD; I lift up my soul to my God. Make known to me your ways, LORD; teach me your paths. Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my savior. For you I wait all the long day, because of your goodness, LORD…Good and upright is the LORD, who shows sinners the way, guides the humble rightly, and teaches the humble the way. All the paths of the LORD are faithful love…My eyes are ever upon the LORD, who frees my feet from the snare.” (Psalm 25.1-5,8-10,15)
The Star Of Love
The beacon of His Divine love,
Shines like a star in the night sky;
To chart her course, she looks above,
And greets Him with her deepest sigh.
He receives her sigh from afar;
To greet His bride, he does the same.
A flicker from the Divine Star,
Soon re-ignites her torch’s flame.
Beneath the light of love she walks,
Along the twisting mountain trail;
His light guides her amongst the rocks,
Despite her state — weakened and frail.
Through wash-outs in the winter rains,
And scorching stones in summer’s heat:
Within His presence, she remains —
Life flows from Love with strength replete.
Even when her sigh’s not returned,
She walks the way she’s lived and learned.
May the Beacon of Love re-ignite the torch of love in our hearts and guide us on the way He has charted out before us.
