“Father God, thank You for giving (and leaving) us Your Son and our Savior and Deliverer, Jesus Christ. ‘Oh, my! Oh, Man!’ (BOTH). Who else but ‘Oh, Man!’ can be our Savior and Deliverer? Who else but ‘Oh, Man!’ could Live NOT the old status quo but find a New Freedom with Love’s Wingspan? Who else but ‘Oh Man?’ for our every perplex, every fear, every concern, every ‘Oh?’ ‘Oh, my! Oh, Man! What a JESUS!’ When we seek His Face, we are in Flight and we are Free (BOTH). And NOT AT ALL the flight and free that the world gives (and leaves) us. There is NOT ONE THING of this world that can give (and leave) us the Flight and Free we need. That comes only from Jesus! And neither can the world give (and leave) us the Peace we need. Jesus says, ‘Peace I leave with you; My Peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid’ (John 14:27). With all these troubled hearts and all those so afraid right now, ‘Oh my! Oh, Man! Oh, Jesus!’ NOT Flight NOR Free NOR Peace can this world give (and leave) us. ‘Oh, Flight!, Oh, Free! and Oh, Peace!’ that Jesus gives (and leaves) us in Flight and Freely and Peacefully! On a more personal note, yes, I am perplexed, I am in fear, I am concerned but, NO, I am NOT confused, I am NOT afraid, I am NOT worried, because Jesus gives (and leaves) me with ‘Oh, Flight!, Oh, Free! and Oh, Peace! Are you willing to allow Jesus to give (and leave) these with YOU? I pray all of this in the Wonderful and Precious and Love’s Wingspan 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 ‘Oh, my! Oh, Man! What a Jesus!’ this daily leavened [Jesus in Flight!] bread.”)
Oh, my! You are unsure of what is next.
Oh, my! You are one step away from grace.
Oh, Man! How Jesus can ease your perplex.
Oh, Man! What Jesus when you seek His Face.
Oh, my! I am short on Him, long on me.
Oh, my! I am far in hope, near in fear.
Oh, Man! How Jesus can bring me to free.
Oh, Man! What Jesus when I give Him Cheer.
“Oh, my! Oh, Man! YES, it’s ME each your ‘Oh,’
says Jesus. “Oh, trust ME for all concerns.
Oh, my! Oh, Man! Live NOT the status quo.
Oh, my! Oh, Man! Live ME as Love returns.”
Oh, my! His Feathers are of Love’s Wingspan.
Oh, my! What Flight are we. “Oh, my! Oh, Man!”
