(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in pleasing ONLY God today, this daily leavened bread.”)
You’re a people pleaser: “I’m okay, right?”
The ones you most want to please say, “Too much!”
Please God, the One who is your appetite
for good love. He’s got that good, pleasing touch.
I’m a people pleaser: “Like me, okay?”
Who I most want to please is everyone!
“Please, God, let me ONLY please You?” This way,
when it’s just God, He speaks, “You please me. Done.”
“Am I seeking man’s pleasing, or of God?”
If ‘man,’ we would not be servants of Christ.
Why do we seek man’s approval? How odd
to gain “man’s please” but lose God’s Sacrifice.
We can spend our whole lives “man-appeasing.”
Or we can….STOP! LOOK! It’s God we’re pleasing.
