“Father God, help us ‘Intensify Jesus’ as we accept Intensity of His Identity. Help us breathe and ‘breakthrough’ and break free of the strings of our attachment to people, places, and things down here. It is so easy, Father God, to attach to these strings down here because we are simply down here trying to make our way through the ‘crooked chaos.’ The only Way to breathe and ‘breakthrough’ and break free from the ‘crooked chaos’ down here is to ‘prepare the Way for the Lord, make straight paths for Him’ (Mark 1:3). On a more personal note, Father God, You know that I have a propensity to ‘up the ante’ and identity as ‘vigilante’ when things are humdrum and, God forbid, I’m thought of as boring! I do ALL THINGS as an artist (and a nonartist) to not be thought of as boring! But I do ask You, Father God: ‘Can I be boring if I am His masterpiece?’ I pray Your Answer is, ‘NO WAY, NO HOW, TIMOTHY, CAN YOU BE THOUGHT OF AS BORING!’ Father God, help me not to intensify ‘me’ but ‘Intensify Jesus,’ else vanity. I pray all of this in the Wonderful and Precious and My Identity in His Name 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 NOT BEING THOUGHT OF AS BORING this daily leavened [‘Intensify Jesus!’] bread.”)
You are looking for who you are in things,
in what you do, in how you carry on.
Your identity does not have these strings
of attachment. It’s detached from your brawn.
My identity is “intensity.”
I’m always needing to “up the ante.”
If things are humdrum, my propensity
is identity as “vigilante.”
“Find your identity in My ‘Made-Peace,'”
says Jesus. “Intensity will ‘chaos’ you.
Breathe and accept that you’re My masterpiece.
You can’t be boring! Only can ‘breakthrough!'”
“Intensify Jesus,” else vanity:
Intensity of His Identity.
