(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in the ‘take over’ of my life by Jesus Christ”)
You want to take over, run the whole show,
direct him here, her there, and them nowhere.
How’s that working for you? Are you solo?
You’ve built the wailing wall with none to care.
I take over. The “crash and burn” is shock,
trauma, nothing left in my “thinking tank.”
I’m lobotomy. I need to unlock
my 4-chamber heart to the One I thank:
“Thank you, Jesus” when we’re at our wit’s end.
“For I delight in suffering. When weak,
I’m strong in Him.” When nothing, we’re His friend.
He Directs us to Love when we are meek.
We’re not lucky from a 4-leaf clover.
We’re blessed and brave from “Jesus, take over.”
