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

Luke 12, 32-34

'Do not be afraid, little flock, for it is your Father’s good 
pleasure to give you the kingdom.
Sell your possessions, and give alms.
Make purses for yourselves that do not wear out, 
an unfailing treasure in heaven, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys.
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.'
What are you saying to me, Lord?
Jesus, you always welcomed little children when you walked on this earth.
Teach me to have a childlike trust in you and to live in the knowledge that you will never abandon me. 
Amen

I want to be...

I want to be, beloved Lord,
Like clay in the potter’s hand.
Take my life, make it new,
I want to be a new vase.

I have known you and have loved you.
I asked for forgiveness and you heard me.
Yes, sorry 
I offended you, forgive me Lord.
Because I love you and will never forget you.
I want to thank you for loving me.
I want to give thanks to you Lord.
Today I am happy that I met you.
Thank you for loving me too.
It’s always nice when one can find a small moment 
of beauty during the liturgy that will carry you 
forward during the week ahead. That’s what I
found tonight.

"Addiction"

When I started using drugs It was all just fun and games, 
Hanging out, getting high, 
and Feeling no pain.
Having lots of fun Running with the crowd
Doing what I wanted When I knew it wasn't allowed.
Slowly, day by day, those drugs Changed my life
Always getting in trouble Living from night to night.
At some point I became addicted I'm not sure
when or how I started lying, cheating and scheming
 Of those things, I am not proud.
Addiction is cunning
It's a baffling disease It makes you very selfish
It creates enemies.
But in the shadow of darkness
There is a ray of hope
You can defeat addiction You can take control.
The journey through recovery
Is a long and treacherous
road But if you have the courage Just reach out and take hold.
Take hold of your dignity Regain your happy life
You are not alone With God by your side
He'll walk you through the shadows Of heartache and pain Give your will to him
You have everything to gain.

A prayer for open doors

I NEED A DOOR TO OPEN...
Father in the name of Jesus, I pray you open doors 
for the person
who sent me this as well as those I am sending it to.
Only you can open doors no man 
can close and for that we honor you today.
Thank you for the open doors of life,
health, strength, prosperity, wealth, and love.
Also, thank you for closing the doors of death, 
sickness, weakness, despair, poverty, and bitterness.
We love you today Lord and give you all the glory
and all the praise.
I seal this prayer in Jesus' name, Amen!!!
If you need God to open a door, pray 
this prayer for the person who sent it to you 
and for those you are sending it to.
Believe in your heart
and you shall receive what God has for you.
I need a door to open...
God closes doors no man can open 
 God opens doors no man can close.
If you need God to open some doors for you...send it on, and if you don't
need God to open some doors for you pass it on anyway.

Read it to the end

There are people who can walk away from you.
And hear me when I tell you this! 
When people can walk away from you: let them walk. 
I don't want you to try to talk another person into staying with you, loving you, calling you, caring about you, coming to see you, staying attached to you. 
I mean hang up the phone. 
When people can walk away from you let them walk. 
Your destiny is never tied to anybody that left. 
The bible said that, they came out from us that it might be made manifest that they were not for us. For had they been of us, no doubt they would have continued with us. [1 John 2:19] 
People leave you because they are not joined to you. 
And if they are not joined to you, you can't make them stay. 
 Let them go.
And it doesn't mean that they are a bad person it just means that their part in the story is over. 
And you've got to know when people's part in your story is over so that you don't keep trying to raise the dead.. 
You've got to know when it's dead. 
You've got to know when it's over. 
Let me tell you something.. 
I've got the gift of good-bye. 
It's the tenth spiritual gift, I believe in good-bye.. 
It's not that I'm hateful, it's that I'm faithful, and I know whatever 
God means for me to have He'll give it to me. 
And if it takes too much sweat I don't need it. 
Stop begging people to stay.
Let them go!! 
If you are holding on to something that doesn't belong to you 
and was never intended for your life, then you need to...... LET IT GO!!!

If you are holding on to past hurts and pains ....... LET IT GO!!! 

If 
someone can't treat you right, love you back, and see your worth...... LET IT GO!!! 
 
If someone has angered you. LET IT GO!!! 
If you are holding on to some thoughts of evil and revenge..... LET IT GO!!! 
If you are involved in a wrong relationship or addiction... .. LET IT GO!!!
If you are holding on to a job that no longer meets your needs or talents LET IT GO!!!
If you! u have a bad attitude.... ... LET IT GO!!! 
If you keep judging others to make yourself feel better...... LET IT GO!!!
If you're stuck in the past and God is trying to take you to a new level in Him......... LET IT GO!!! 
If you are struggling with the healing of a broken relationship. .... LET IT GO!!! 
If you keep trying to help someone who won't even try to help themselves.. .... LET IT GO!!! 
If you're feeling depressed and stressed ............ LET IT GO!!! 
 If there is a particular situation that you are so used to handling yourself and God is saying 'take your hands off of it,' then you need to...... LET IT GO!!! '
The Battle is the Lord's!' During the next 60 seconds, Stop whatever you are doing, and take this opportunity... (Literally it is only ONE minute!) All you have to do is the following: You simply say 'The Lords Prayer' for the person that hurt you the most and LET IT GO!!!
The Lords Prayer 
Our Father, who are in Heaven, 
Hallowed be Thy Name, 
Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven. 
Give us this day, our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as 
we forgive those who trespass against us. 
And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. 
For Thine is the Kingdom, and the Power, and the Glory, forever. 
 Amen.
