“Father God, we’ve already dug through many of miles for the treasures in trials. Keep us to dig, rest, rest, dig for the treasures in trials. The treasure we don’t ever want to stop digging for is Your Son and our Savior, Jesus Christ, for He is our Treasure. It won’t require much digging, though, for He is our Surface and our Strength. I often overdo and overthink my digging for treasures in trials, but I do and think the treasures are multiplied in this way. My algebra while others do simple math is my calculations for greater compassion for myself and others. On a more personal note, Father God, what trials I am in right now! What trials are most of us in right now! And what digging and resting (BOTH) is required for all of us to find the pleasures of Your Treasures in these trials. Please don’t let me give up the digging and the resting, Father God, as I am prone to do with I’m in these deepest of despairs. In my so deep is the so dig that I am promised the ‘smiles of My sheep.’ I am a smiling sheep of Jesus, and I’m promised that, “He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters” (Psalm 23:2). That IS the dig, rest, rest, dig of the treasures in trials. I pray all of this in the Wonderful and Precious and ‘Real’ 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 digging, resting, resting, digging for His Treasures in my trials this daily leavened [Jesus Treasures!] bread.”)
It’s that you’re in trials that there are treasures.
It’s that you’re in hell that there is Heaven.
Just rest in the knowledge that there’s pleasures
in simple math: 4+3=7.
I do algebra while others do math.
My calculations in trials are complex.
I overdo and overthink my path,
though multiplied treasures in my perplex.
“I am your Treasure when you’re in your trials,”
says Jesus. “It requires digging so deep.
I promise you the reward so dig: Smiles.
I promise you the ‘real’ so dig: My sheep.”
We’ve already dug through many of miles.
Dig, rest, rest, dig, for the treasures in trials.
