“Father God, thank You that we ALL can celebrate Christ Connection! Afforded to us ALL, people and animals, for ALL time, forever more, to the very end of the age. When there’s shame, there is resignation and deprivation which are disconnection. We hold onto our shame, thinking it is ours to hold, and yet Your Word, Father God, says: ‘There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit’ (Romans 8:1 [KJV]). That means when there’s shame, resignation and deprivation which are disconnection, we have to ask Jesus to help us depart from these! That means we cannot celebrate after the flesh/ego (OF the world) but only celebrate after the Spirit/Jesus (IN the world). We disconnect from the world, as Jesus taught us: They are not OF the world, even as I am not OF it’ (John 17:16). Help us ALL, Father God, to have that Jesus Sensation and Jesus Foundation (BOTH). On a more personal note, thank You, Father God, for this VERY SECOND sonnet from the Celebrate Recovery Summit and, in particular, the Summit talk yesterday from Rodney Holmstrom on “Celebrating Connection” that inspired this sonnet. ‘ALL Things hold Together” when we are ALL held Together in the One Body of Jesus Christ, in which we are ALL members of that One Body. Who do we reassign and connect to? You guessed it! Who made us BE! Jesus Christ!!!! Celebrate Christ Connection TODAY! I pray all of this in the Wonderful and Precious and Celebrated 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 SECOND “Celebrate Recovery Summit” sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in making [and celebrating] Christ Connection this daily leavened bread.”)

When there’s shame, there’s you at resignation.

When there’s resignation, disconnection.

Reassign you for Jesus Sensation.

Disconnect the world for Christ Connection.

When there’s shame, there’s me at deprivation.

When there’s deprivation, disconnection.

Deprive no one your Jesus Foundation.

Disconnect the world for Christ Connection.

“Make Connections by celebrating ME!”

says Jesus. “Celebrate Who made you BE.

Drop resignation! Reassign Who? ME!

Drop deprivation. Connect to Who? ME!”

It all comes down to an introspection.

Inspect HIM! Celebrate Christ Connection!

  1. I’m resigned and there is shame. With resignation comes pulling back and floundering in my own stew. Does it all come down to introspection?
