“Father God, thank You that You ‘AM’ our every known groan through Your Son and our Savior and Deliverer (BOTH), Jesus Christ. We want others to hear our known groan and guarantee us relief, but it’s not possible for those around us or anyone here. If we put You, Father God, on bookshelf or say to You, ‘just myself,’ we have no guarantee of relief from our known groan. It is only when Jesus ‘AM’ Guaranty and we keep ‘grown’ spiritually that we have His Relief for our known groan. On a more personal note, and maybe not all that personal, I hear known groans all around me day and night, including my own known groan. Why? ‘We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time’ (Romans 8:22). And please know, dear reader, that when this Bible verse says, ‘whole creation,’ it IS referring to BOTH humans AND nonhuman animals. This Bible verse is NOT excluding some of Father God’s creation. It is inclusive of ALL creation, ALL God’s humans AND nonhuman animals. I know for me, it is the known groan of God’s nonhuman animals that I bend my ear to hear their known groan the loudest. I am blessed that God has allowed me to bend His Ear, as well, to the known grown of His nonhuman animals. It is something I care not to postpone but really NOW that I would hear their known groan and keep ‘grown’ spiritually to help God’s nonhuman animals day and night. I pray all of this in the Wonderful and Precious and Guaranteed Relief Name of Jesus Christ, and this prayer is answered by my faith and my belief (BOTH). Please help me, Father, where my faith and my belief (BOTH) are lacking. Amen.”
(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in God bending His Ear to my ‘known groan’ and guaranteed Relief this daily leavened [Jesus Grown!] bread.”)
You have groan not known by those around you.
You have groan not known even by yourself.
God knows your known groan for He does groan, too.
God groans ’cause many have Him on bookshelf.
I have groan not known by anyone here.
I have groan not known even by myself.
God knows my known groan for He bends His Ear.
God groans ’cause many tell Him, “just myself.”
“I AM your known groan for who else but ME?”
says Jesus. “Who else can ‘AM’ your known groan?
When known groan to ME, I AM ‘Guaranty.’
I guarantee Relief as you keep ‘grown.'”
Please don’t think there’s much time left to postpone.
It’s really NOW with God for our known groan.
NOTE: Although I have not read Christopher Southgate’s book, “The Groaning of Creation,” it does sound like a very good read. I invite you to purchase and read his book. It is available for sale on Amazon.com at:
