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

ANGELS IN THE ALLEY

Diane, a young Christian university student, was home
for the summer. 
She had gone to visit some friends one
evening and the time passed quickly as each shared
their various experiences of the past year.
She ended up staying longer than she had planned
and had to walk home alone.
 But she wasn't afraid because
it was a small town and she lived only
a few blocks away.
As she walked along under Publish Poster the tall elm trees,
Diane asked "God" to keep her safe from harm and danger.
When she reached the alley, which was a short cut to
her house, she decided to take it.
However, halfway
down the alley she noticed a man standing at the
end as though he was waiting for her. 
She became uneasy and began to pray, asking for
"God's" protection.
Instantly a comforting feeling of quietness and
security wrapped around her, she felt as though
someone was walking with her.
 When she reached the
end of the alley, she walked right past the man
and arrived home safely.
The following day, she read in the paper that a young
girl had been raped in the same alley, just twenty
minutes after she had been there.
Feeling overwhelmed by this tragedy and the fact that it
could have been her, she began to weep.
 Thanking the Lord
for her safety and to help this young woman, she decided to go
to the police station.
She felt she could recognize the man, so she told them her
story. 
The police asked her if she would be willing to look
at a lineup to see if she could identify him.
 She agreed and immediately pointed out the man she had seen in the
alley the night before.
When the man was told he had been identified, he
immediately broke down and confessed.
The officer thanked Diane for her bravery and asked if there was
anything they could do for her.
She asked if they would ask the man one question.
Diane was curious as to why he had not attacked her.
When the policeman asked him, he answered,
"Because she wasn't alone. 
She had two tall men
walking on either side of her."
Don't underestimate the power of Prayer.
As I walk God walks with me!

ANGELS EXIST

This morning when the Lord opened a window to Heaven
he saw me, and he asked: My child, what is your greatest wish for today?
I responded:
“Lord please; take care of my family, my friends, the person 
who is reading this message, their family and their special friends. 
They deserve it and I love them very much”.
The love of God is like the ocean, you can see its beginnings but not its end.
ANGELS EXIST, but sometimes, since they don't all have wings 
we call them FRIENDS, SUCH AS YOU.

Protect my Children

"Heavenly Mother, keep us always in mind of 
Your Son's great mercy and understanding as we pray for 
our children.
They are grown up now and have left us and are 
living their own lives according to their own ideals.
We feel anxious and worried because they do 
not seem to feel the need for Christ.
To understand the wisdom of His ways, or to be 
fully at ease with us or themselves.
 Intervene, dearest Mother, in their lives at the moment 
You know to be right and help them to understand the
things that lead to their peace.
Help them to see the need of Christ and to experience the greatness 
of His love, so that we may all proclaim as 
You did, that His mercy truly is from generation to generation.
 Amen"

"But God ...Has Raised us Up”

Ultimately, there's nothing that can fill the emptiness of the human heart - but God.
There's no solution to war, prejudice, and injustice - but God.
There's no satisfaction for the cravings of the flesh - but God.
There's no healing for the brokenhearted, lonely and desperate - but God. 
There's no turning point for human depravity - but God.
There's no deliverance from addiction and heartache - but God.
The 'But God' factor breaks every generational curse that reaches you through Adam's sin.
One Greek translation of the word ‘spirit’ is 'air'. 
When you were 'dead in trespasses and sins (' (Ephesians 2:1), 
God breathed divine air into you. 
Paul says, “and you, (He made alive, when you were dead by your trespasses and sins' (Ephesians 2:1 Amp).
 The truth is you never really lived until you met the Lord!
The 'But God' factor turns tragedy into triumph. It's the turning point in your story.
Hell would be partying today, 'but God' chose to lavish His mercy and grace on you.
Listen: '...though He was rich, yet for your sake 
He became poor, that ye through His poverty might be rich' (2 Corinthians 8:9).
 Rich in wisdom, Rich in achievements, Rich in relationships and Rich in 'all things'.
Despite satan’s efforts to destroy, diminish, defame and discourage you, God never once took His hand off your life.
He brought you to an understanding of Jesus as your Savior and Lord; now He's raising you up to fulfill His purposes.
No matter how bad things may look today, rise up and declare 'But God!'
