(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in going THAT deep with Jesus, for it is only when I go THAT deep with Jesus THAT I can rise”)
Go deep with me,” you implore. You’re a shell
needing the return to the sea’s expanse.
You feel not seen. Ghosts know this feeling well.
You hold what you need inside you….by chance?
It’s no accident that I go deep need.
Jesus went that deep and then God’s Appeal.
He rose. I “knows” I’m to rise, too. First, bleed.
Deep wounds must bleed, then bandaged, now they heal.
“He was pierced for us; by His Stripes, we’re healed.”
Isaiah 53:Five – It’s THAT deep!
We’ll go THAT deep when we’re bloodied from kneeled.
We’ll rise when we’ve declared, “I am THAT sheep.”
Let us cut to the chase: We need Him deep.
Let us run the Sheep Race: We’ll need UPkeep.
