“Father God, thank You that you are One of few words but when You ‘speak them’ to us, what Grace! We, as humans, unfortunately do not always have the right words to speak to them. In these times, let us be willing to be just an ‘eyewitness,’ not ‘witnessing words,’ don’t ‘speak them.’ When we think we have the exact answer for the one who is broken, let us remember Your Words, Father God: ‘If someone is caught in a sin, you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently. But watch yourselves, or you also may be tempted’ (Galatians 6:1). I believe the key words in that Scripture are: LIVE BY THE SPIRIT and GENTLY. In other words (no pun intended), ONLY if living by the Spirit and ONLY if gently are we poised to speak our words to them. If BOTH of these are NOT present, yes, we need be just ‘eyewitness.’ Thank you, Father God, that we have the only Witness we need and that is Your Son and our Savior, Jesus Christ. Can I get a witness? On a more personal note, I am NOT a child of God of few words. I typically speak ad nauseam. Help me, Father God, to ONLY speak if I am LIVING BY THE SPIRIT and GENTLY. And help me to always have words for Your nonhuman animals, as I am an animal welfare advocate for YOU! I pray all of this in this in the Wonderful and Precious and ‘Fitness’ Name of Jesus Christ, and this prayer is answered by my faith and my belief. 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 being an ‘eyewitness’ to anyone who might need me to be a witness for them this daily leavened [Jesus is Fit!] bread.”)
Can you get a witness, one of few words?
Can you get one who sees you, don’t “speaks you?”
You need One who’s seen it all in back”words”
and for”words.” You need Jesus! Witness Who!
Can I get a witness, one who’s “broken?”
Can I get one who holds me in my shame?
I need One who’s “soft” to get me jokin’
when I’ve lost my humor. Witness His Name!
“Take none so dire. Can I get a witness?”
asks Jesus. “Yes! Fewer words from their lips.
Witness Me carry you in My Fitness.
Witness Me Love you when all are ‘eclipse.'”
It’s NOT “witnessing words,” just “eyewitness,”
just DON’T “speak them.” Can I get a witness?
