“Father God, thank You for sending Your Son and our Savior, Jesus Christ, so that we don’t have to suffer enough. Jesus suffered enough so we could be New in Him. ‘Made your Make’ is New, while ‘hurting me’ is old (note to Timothy). Father God, help us to never forget that when we want to hurt others, we are only hurting ourselves and not free to free hurt ‘how to.’ We’re drinking the poison and expecting the one who hurt us to die. ‘Hurting me’ has no part, Father God, in Your ‘Made your Make’ (note to Timothy). Please let thinking Love and thinking Joy be our New ‘think.’ And, Father God, we know that there should be no ‘hurting me’ of BOTH humans AND nonhuman animals. When we BOTH ‘hurt me,’ we take the hit AND we suffer. I pray all of this in the Wonderful and Precious and New Name in old me of Jesus Christ, and this prayer is answered by my faith and my belief. Please help me, Father God, where my faith and my belief are lacking. Amen.”
(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in New ‘Made your Make’ replacing old ‘hurting me’ this daily leavened [Jesus is New in old me!] bread.”)
What you resent of them, you hurt of you.
What you can’t forgive of them, you of “take.”
You take the hit that was meant for them. Who
are you to hurt you when God “Made your Make?”
What I can’t forgive of you, of hurt me.
You should die but the poison is my drink.
“Can’t you act right?” Not when I’m acting “see.”
See what happens when I am my own “think.”
“Think Love. Think Joy. Think before you hurt you,”
pleads Jesus. “I’ve been hurt enough. You, too.
I didn’t suffer to suffer anew.
You’re New in Me, free to free hurt ‘how to.'”
“Made your Make” is New (note to Timothy).
“Hurting me” is old (note to Timothy).
