Why are you cast down, O my inner self? And why should you moan over me and be disquieted within me? Hope in the Mighty One Of Israel and wait expectantly for Him, for I shall yet praise Him, my Help and my Mighty One.
O my Master, my life is cast down upon me and I find the burden more than I can bear; therefore, will I earnestly remember You from the land of the Jordan River and the summits of Mount Hermon, from the little mountain Mizar.
Roaring deep calls to roaring deep at the thunder of Your waterspouts; all Your breakers and Your rolling waves have gone over me.
Yet my Master will command His loving-kindness in the daytime, and in the night His song shall be with me, a prayer to the Mighty One of my life.
I will say to my Master—my Rock, Why have You forgotten me? Why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
As with a sword crushing in my bones, my enemies taunt and reproach me, while they say continually to me, Where is your Mighty One?
Why are you cast down, O my inner self? And why should you moan over me and be disquieted within me?
Hope in the Mighty One Of Israel and wait expectantly for Him, for I shall yet praise Him, Who is the help of my countenance, and my Mighty One. End of quote.
I Hope And Wait Expectantly For You My Master. You Are My Help. You Alone Are My Mighty One …
You know that is the fact in my heart, but in my frail flesh I feel that You have forgotten me despite all the blessings You always bestow upon me.
The Flesh Profits Nothing From Your Spirit, That’s The Fact …
And that’s what You have whispered to me right now. I also hear, “But you are not living the life of the flesh, you are living the life of the Spirit.”
“Pause. Reflect. O thiaBasilia—O Child Of My Heart! Wake up from your stupor—your state of reduced sensibility or consciousness!
There is nothing wrong with you despite the misery of the moment. Always remember, My grace is sufficient unto you to suffer all miseries courageously.
But what of such miseries? You must consider that the sufferings of this present time (this present life) are not worth being compared with the bliss that is about to be revealed to you all.
