(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in gracious words spoken to me first so that they can be spoken to all others second this daily leavened [Jesus Rises!] bread.”)
Like a honeycomb, gracious words are sweet.
You can’t speak them “out” if not spoken “in.”
Starts inside how you “outside” mercy seat;
got no mercy for you, got no begin.
“I’m such a nobody” is usual.
“No one understands me” is close second.
What does God say? Is God delusional?
“You’re somebody. I ‘get’ you” is beckoned.
“Gracious words to you are gracious to Me,”
says Jesus. “My Father is pleased with you
when you are merciful to you. To free
you is to free Me to love you aNew.”
All we are an “inside job,” God as Guide.
End of cruel, as gracious words start inside.
