“Father God, thank You that so Be It BOTH It Be! BOTH You AND Your Son, Jesus Christ, our BOTH Savior AND Deliver, Be ALL it BOTH ever need Be! We can’t make it about us and we can’t make it about them (BOTH). We only make it about BOTH You, Father God, AND Him! When we think we got this, have mercy on our souls! When we think we got this, remind us of Your Word, Father God: ‘ The LORD knows that people’s thoughts are pointless’ (Psalm 94:11). WOW! Oh, I see. No matter how clever and unique are our words and thoughts, we have to throw out this technique. We have to get to the point, and the Point is GOD, JESUS, BOTH! WOW! On a more personal note, Father God, you know how much I relish my uniqueness and my cleverness with words and thoughts. I am a writer, and that is typically what writers ‘hang their hat on.’ Help me, Father God, to ONLY ‘hang my hat on’ on GOD, JESUS, BOTH! My hat IS the Crown of Jesus! Psalm 46:10 has got to be one of my all-time favorite Bible verses: ‘Be still and know that I am God.‘ So much of BOTH anxiety AND hopelessness “hang” on this Bible verse alone to “hang” with us for BOTH comfort AND hope. And I truly relish this picture of a donkey associated with this Bible verse, ’cause donkeys are considered by many ‘the least of these.’ I’m just grateful that Jesus addresses ‘the least of these’ like donkeys: ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me’ (Matthew 25:40). BOTH humans AND nonhuman animals are ‘brothers and sisters of mine’ when it comes to ‘for one of the least of these.’ I pray all of this in the Wonderful and Precious and Technique 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 so Be It GOD, JESUS, BOTH It Be this daily leavened [Jesus Unique!] bread.”)
It’s that you expect It to Be so “you.”
It’s that you expect It to Be so “them.”
It’s that you need It to Be so God Who
needs It to Be so NOT “you,” “them,” just HIM!
It’s that I expect It to Be so “me.”
It’s that I expect It to Be so “them.”
It’s that I need It to Be so much HE,
’cause if I think I got this, so less HIM!
“Wow, Timothy! Not so much of unique,”
says Jesus. “Usually, you write clever.
Oh, I see. To the point, throw out technique:
GOD, ME, BOTH! Unique fails this FOREVER!”
Hard to break from my creativity.
GOD, JESUS BOTH! So Be It BOTH It Be.
