“Father God, thank You that You SO Loved the world, that You sent us Your Son and our Savior and Deliverer, Jesus Christ (John 3:16), who Ransomed Abandoned. Never were we and never will we be abandoned by You, Father God, for You are now our Friend because of our Friend, Jesus. His ‘Blood Begin’ is that we will NEVER be abandoned in the End. On a more personal note, thank You, Father God, for allowing me to use the word, ‘suspend,’ in this God Sonnet, for the meaning is BOTH-fold: Yes, Jesus Suspends, i.e., ‘stops the process,’ our Greatest Fear of being abandoned AND, yes, Jesus Suspends, i.e., ‘hangs freely,’ while He Shed His Blood on the Cross. We have ALL speared Jesus and still He Suspends. And on an even more personal note, Father God, this picture breaks my heart! Clearly, this dog has been abandoned by the person or people in that car who are driving off. This person or these people didn’t even have the common courtesy to find this dog a home or at least surrender him to an animal shelter. Anyone, person or people, who does this to a dog, and I’m sorry to say this, should NOT be able to receive Ransomed Abandoned, for they abandoned this dog so heartlessly. I know that Jesus would still Suspend for this person or people, but it does not make me all that happy that He would. But I’m NOT Jesus; Jesus IS Jesus! His Word is the Final Word. Just help me, Jesus, to raise my voice for voiceless animals like this dog in the picture who has been abandoned so heartlessly. Wait a minute! You just helped me, Jesus, because I just raised my voice for this voiceless and abandoned dog! This must be what You mean, Jesus, in the Bible verse: ‘Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing’ (1 Thessalonians 5:11). I ‘just as I am doing’ encouraged and built up one another, person or people, to NEVER abandon their pet. I pray all of this in the Wonderful and Precious and Suspend 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 NEVER forgetting that Jesus has Ransomed Abandoned for me this daily leavened [Jesus Suspends!] bread.”)
Your Greatest Fear: All will abandon you.
Your Greatest Hope: Jesus Ransomed your fear.
Your Greatest Love: Yes, Him when you are blue.
Your Greatest Red: Yes, His blood from your spear.
My Greatest Fear: The very same as yours.
My Greatest Hope: Very same once again.
My Greatest Love: Yes, His Wounds are my cures.
My Greatest Red: Yes, at His “Blood Begin.”
“I’ve Ransomed Abandoned to be with you,”
says Jesus. “My Father is now your Friend.
And you’re right! My Blood I Shed, yes, for you.
Even though you speared Me, still I Suspend.”
We don’t have to be the least bit saddened,
for Jesus Christ has Ransomed Abandoned.
