“Father God, thank You that we can celebrate compassion through HIM, Your Son and our Savior and Deliverer, Jesus Christ. When we celebrate compassion for THEM, we are celebrating compassion for HIM! And “THEM” is inclusive of BOTH people AND animals, as Your Word tells us: ‘Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your justice like the ocean depths. You care for people and animals alike, O LORD’ (Psalm 36:6 [NLT]). Who God made BOTH and ALL of us to be is a cause to celebrate compassion. Even when we are in the shutting down or in the lowest down, HE is of Highest Fashion. HE is the very UP we SEE when we are down. Even when we feel we are quarry (one who is sought or pursued; prey) and even when we are of wraith (an insubstantial form or semblance; shadow), we celebrate compassion for ALL because HE celebrates compassion for US! On a more personal note, this is my VERY FIRST God “Celebrate Recovery Summit” Sonnet! As I embark on my personal ministry of CELEBRATE COMPASSION with Creation Care Church (CCC), I will be immensely blessed to be at the Celebrate Recovery Summit in Dallas the next three days to gain God’s Wisdom AND Understanding (BOTH) for this personal ministry with CCC. May I be blessed, Father God through Jesus Christ, these next three days and trust COMPLETELY in YOU for everything I might need for this personal ministry. Grant me YOUR Wisdom AND Understanding (BOTH) and NOT my own wisdom and understanding which is skewed (“askewed”) and beneath YOU, for ‘God’s Knowledge is Too Wonderful for me, Too Great for me to understand!’ (Psalm 139:6 [NLT]). I pray all of this in the Wonderful and Precious and Highest Fashion 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 VERY FIRST “Celebrate Recovery Summit” sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in celebrating compassion for ALL through HIM this daily leavened bread.”)
You celebrate you in all your glory.
You celebrate who God made you to be.
Celebrate compassion for you, quarry.
You will be attacked! Celebrate Who’s HE!
I celebrate me of littlest faith.
I celebrate who God made me to be.
Celebrate compassion for me of wraith.
I am “hunt haunted.” Celebrate Who’s HE!
“Celebrate Compassion for you and ME,”
says Jesus. “Celebrate Compassion for THEM.
In the shutting down, there is UP you SEE.
In the lowest down, there is UP in ‘HIM.'”
Trusting in HIM is of Highest Fashion.
Loving ALL is Celebrate Compassion!
