Daily Reflection with Fr. Tomas Del Valle-Reyes

Dear Friends: Praying is not easy. Our daily routine calls for our full attention. And the world around us puts little value on prayer; our lives are full of material things but at the same time are getting emptier in God’s value.

For this reason, I will post a daily reflection and as you visit this site may the Holy Spirit within you come to your aid and guide you gently to the God who loves you

*~Change Me~*

Dear Lord change not Thy will in my life, Or trial and sorrows to be;
renew my faith and make me strong,
Change not Thy will, change me.
Though teardrops fall when trouble comes, 
Like storms on a rolling sea;
Let Thy beacon guide my ship to port,
Change not the storm, change me.
When Thy Holy Word I don't understand and 
Thy glory I cannot see;
Teach my eyes, give me sight and wisdom,
Change not Thy Word, change me.
If the fruit Thou hast given me to eat, Taste bitter and sour, I plea;
 Let not my will but Thy be done, Change not the fruit, change me.
If sometime I murmur and grumble, dear Lord, 
about the cross I carry for Thee; 
Keep it firm on my shoulders, but hold my hand,
Change not the cross, change me.
If You change Thy ways to please me, dear Lord, 
I would soon grow cold and turn from Thee; 
That You may hear my prayers, dear Lord, 
Change not Thy ways, and change me.
There's a valley that I must cross, Someday Thy face to see; Lest I forget what power is Thane, Change not the valley, change me.
