TO ACT CENTER STAGE IN HIS SHADOW

“I cast my shadow in His Shadow; I drop my ego to act on Center Stage”

(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in giving the performance of a lifetime on Center Stage in His Shadow”)

You are trying to please them all, aren’t you?

You pick up their brokenness, seek their cures.

It’s admirable. You got a good heart, true.

To please them, heal their pained woes, is not yours.

“You like me, right?” What I do if they don’t

like me is change me so they will; adjust.

It’s exhausting to try to please their “won’t.”

I’d rather please God, please me, plead entrust.

“Deny you and pick up His Rock, not theirs.”

Matthew Sixteen:Twenty4 – Drop ego,

drop that rock that is their rock. Let affairs

be to act Center Stage in His Shadow.

God knows we mean well when we want a friend.

Matters what God thinks, what we think….The End.

    I think it’s a call to focus on God AND ourselves but not what others are doing or saying. The “good reminder” is that we allow God to help us and we allow ourselves that privilege. What others do and say is none of our business. We keep the Center Stage clean; we don’t play other people’s parts in the Play of Our Life 😉
