Psalm 90

The Comforter came to me:
"With joy are you ever at home
in my Heart,
as I have lived in yours.
You are mine; I belong to You...
Who will enter the Heart of Love?"

~from Psalm 90 in Psalms for Praying by Nan Merrill

So our lives have their seasons

As spring and summer follow
the autumn and winter,
so our lives have their seasons.
Help us to live in the eternal moment,
awaiting your perfect timing
in all things.
~ from PSALMS FOR PRAYING by Nan Merrill

Listen in the silence for Spirit's Voice

Listen in the silence for Spirit's Voice
guiding your soul
for service in the great renewal,
the new creation, the citadel of
Love here on Earth.
All are welcome together as One!
Listen, attune, and heed the inner Voice of Love.
For in sacred Silence, we open ourselves
to Wisdom,
to ever deepening communion with
the Source of all creation.
~ from LUMEN CHRISTI...HOLY WISDOM by Nan Merrill

Loving service rendered with integrity

Loving service rendered with integrity teaches multitudes in darkness, those who still sleep, far faster than books or lectures.
~ from LUMEN CHRISTI...HOLY WISDOM by Nan Merrill

Wisdom abides in deep recesses of the heart

Wisdom abides in deep recesses of the heart;
who is at home to receive Her?

~ from LUMEN CHRISTI...HOLY WISDOM by Nan Merrill

Allowing Wisdom to have her way

A holy and disciplined mind turns
from ignorance and falsehood,
ignoring their myriad distractions,
while the soul stands firm, allowing
Wisdom to have her way.

Walking with Wisdom
By Nan Merrill

Blessed are those who have asked for forgiveness

Blessed are those who have confessed
  their erring ways,
  who have asked for forgiveness.
Blessed are those whose burdens
  have been lifted,
  who are able to respond with love.
For the Beloved walks with them and
  speaks to them in the Silence;
With mercy and compassion, they
  are held in Love's heart;
All who are at one with Love will
  live in peace and harmony.

~ from PSALMS FOR PRAYING, 94, by Nan Merrill

Surrender to joy

Surrender to joy and experience light!
~ Nan Merrill (found in one of her notebooks)

Will you abandon me forever

"Will you abandon me forever, and
leave me comfortless in my distress?
Where is your steadfast Love that
made my soul to sing?
Are your promises empty,
that I feel so alone?"

The Power of your Love seems
too much for us;
Your Light unveils the secrets
hidden in our heart;
Can You wonder that we tremble?

Yet, You stand beside us as we walk
through our fears to
the path of wholeness and love,
though our footsteps are unsure.

~ excerpt from Psalm 77 in PSALMS FOR PRAYING, Nan Merrill
