(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.
