“Father God, thank You that when we are ‘loss,’ we find You! Whether from ‘the noon to the moon,’ there You are to ‘strength care’ us through Your Son and our Savior, Jesus Christ. Admitting that we are powerless is exactly when our ‘loss’ is a stop so Jesus can be our every Start. Nothing can cease the Tender Mercies and Lovingkindness of Jesus when we are our ‘toss.’ When we are at ‘toss,’ help us to never forget Your Words: “Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth” (Psalm 46:10). It is when we are at ‘loss’ that Jesus is at Increase (Exalted). There’s just no other way for us to soundly handle ‘loss’ than to let Jesus soundly handle all our ‘loss.’ On a more personal note, Father God, help us to know that ‘loss’ is for BOTH humans AND nonhuman animals. Our ‘loss’ we experience as BOTH is for Your Tender Mercies and Lovingkindness (BOTH). And speaking of ‘Tender Mercies and Lovingkindness,” a dear one in my heart and mind has experienced a ‘loss,’ and I pray to You to please allow this dear one and all those in this dear one’s life to receive Your Tender Mercies and Lovingkindness in this ‘loss.’ Help this dear one and all those in this dear one’s life to have Your Peace, Father God, “which transcends all understanding, that will guard their hearts and minds in Christ Jesus’ (Philippians 4:7). Thank you, Father God, for allowing me to pray this, and I pray this and all of this in the Wonderful and Precious and Increased 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 no matter the stop that is the ‘loss,’ found is Jesus at the Start that is the Increase, this daily leavened [Jesus Never Ceases!] bread.”)
You have already “loss” so much so soon.
But what you have “loss” is what you have found.
You have found God from the noon to the moon.
You might “loss” again but now you are sound.
I have “loss” much, seemingly half my hours.
For the other half, will I have “loss” there?
If I do, how God will comfort me with Powers.
If I’m powerless, how God will “strength care.”
“In this world, you will have ‘loss’ but take to heart,”
says Jesus. “In your ‘loss,’ I will Increase.
‘Loss’ is a stop, but I’m your every Start.
Start trusting ME, for I’m not One to cease.”
What is we “loss” will no doubt be our “toss.”
“Be still, I’m God,” for it’s clear we’re at “loss.”
