Mihaela Pirjol


Encountering God


In weakness and in fear,
In doubt and trembling
Like a lost child
With a heavy heart,
In humility,
In hope for my salvation
I came to Thee...
I came to encounter thee,
God Almighty!
Behind thy church's stone,
On my knees I fell
Among the trees in forest deep,
My wounded soul to thee I wept.
Thou understood my prayer,
Thou understood my woe
And in thy Grace Divine,
Thou received this soul of mine;
Upon my heart,
Thy mystic presence...Light!
Lost soul, by guiding light I found.
With Everlasting Love Divine,
My mortal human weakness thou replaced;
And with such radiance my heart fulfilled,
Beyond my knowing reaches
Mesmerized by a miracle I felt,
Overflowing sacredly upon the World
With abundance in sharing,
Spreading Divine on paths by evil touched.
And I raised and walked
With a confidence I did not have,
In smile my joyful spirit, while humiliated,
Devoted loving, while despised I have been;
Wide wings of hope I felt
Soaring high and free
Just like a dove;
Faithfully...I believed!
And all my questions,
In thy sacred book
Thou answered them God!
I, then…
Loved with a Love
Beyond reason or judgement,
Completely, selflessly,
To the point of vanishing…
Till thy Brightness,
Brought me closer to Thee...
God Almighty!

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
