I take joy in sharing the Word given us today by Fr. Augustine Vallooran. I first met this anointed preacher way back in 1998 when I made my first retreat at Divine Retreat Centre in Kerala, India. Today, many people are familiar with this retreat centre. It was from this place that I learnt to be an intercessor, and to share the faith I have received. Praise the Lord!
And the one who was seated on the throne said, “See, I am making all things new.” Also he said, “Write this, for these words are trustworthy and true.”(Revelation 21: 5)
A weekend retreat And we had a great start today With the above Word given us
That the One who was seated on the throne said “See, I make all things new.”
And we know that these words are trustworthy and true
They are in the holy bible, Book of Revelation 21: 5
Jesus is the One with authority
Jesus is the One with control
And He is faithful and true to His promises
He came to renew all that is old
He came to put right all that had gone wrong
All that still hurts us so
All that we regret in our hearts and in our lives
All that we complain about and are so unhappy with
Yes, all these and more
The Good Shepherd came
He came to seek the lost
He came to bind up our wounds
And I am so thankful for having been there
As I still live on this alien soil, remembering that my citizenship is in heaven
And if the just man falls seven times a day, what about me, the sinner?
So let me learn to totally surrender and yield to our Lord God
He will make all things new! Alleluia!
