“Father God, thank You that it is the unseen where we find Your Son and our Savior, Jesus Christ. What we can see with our physical eyes is temporary. What we can see with our spiritual eyes is hope eternal. What is OF the world is heartless. What is IN the world is heart’more.’ ‘Oh, but what good is it if we can’t see it!’ You are Good, Father God, and we can’t see You, but we CAN feel you and we CAN know You through Your Word and our Love-in-Action through Jesus. Thank you, Father God, for camouflaging some of Your nonhuman animals so they won’t be hurt, as this picture shows. On a more personal note, I wish ALL nonhuman animals were camouflaged so they wouldn’t be hurt. When one hurts one of Your nonhuman animals, Father God, they hurt me and they hurt You. When one hurts one of Your humans, they hurt me and they hurt You. And when I hurt myself, I REALLY hurt me and I REALLY hurt You! Please help me, Father God, not to hurt me and You this daily leavened bread. Help me always see (pun intended) when Jesus says, ‘Timothy, see Me in the unseen.’ I pray all of this in the Wonderful and Precious and Unseen Name 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 finding Jesus in the unseen IN and not OF the world this daily leavened [Unsee Jesus!] bread.”)
It’s not what you can see that is your gold.
It’s the unseen that is your pot of Grace.
“Oh, but I have to see it to behold!”
Behold Jesus in the unseen Embrace.
What I can see is just temporary.
What I unsee is my hope eternal.
“Oh, but I can’t unsee what I carry!”
I can, ’cause I carry it “internal.”
“See Me in the unseen, not in darkness,”
says Jesus. “It’s the Light inside of Me.
See nothing OF the world that’s so heartless.
See Me IN the world. Spirit? Yes! Unsee!”
Those shapes. Those hurts. Those only give smoke screen
when Jesus says, “See Me in the unseen.”
