“Father God, thank You that You give Your Free Gift of Grace to those Humbly in Harmony with Your Son and our Savior and Deliverer, Jesus Christ. Christ is our Humbly in Harmony. The world gives gives harmony so few. It can be found from time to time of the world, but we are ‘in the world,’ meaning the Peace of Jesus is Increase that ‘of the world’ cannot give us. We receive only from Him Humbly in Harmony (BOTH). Thank you for sending us One So Just and One not sojourn. On a more personal note, I love the word, ‘just,’ here in this sonnet with, you guessed it, So many meanings: ‘of moral excellence; absolutely; and nothing more; indicating exactness or preciseness; based on or behaving according to what is morally right and fair.’ If those So many meanings of ‘just’ don’t describe Jesus perfectly, I don’t know what So many meanings would. I also love the word, ‘sojourn,’ here in this sonnet with its one meaning: ‘a temporary stay.’ God sent me Jesus not as a temporary stay but as a Permanent One. Though must leave, Jesus? No, God knew to send me One not sojourn. Whether luxury or longingly or BOTH, whether trust or grieve or BOTH, ‘God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble’ (James 4:6). What a joy to know that we receive Jesus Christ, One So Just and one not sojourn, One for our every Humbly in Harmony. Given the picture attached to this sonnet, it seems I have not been able to pull away from two previous sonnets about ‘Sealed Deal’ and ‘Look Up’ (BOTH), which is when ‘for God so loved the world that He gave His Only Begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life’ (John 3:16). I pray all of this in the Wonderful and Precious and Increase Name of Jesus Christ, the Name above every other name. This prayer is answered by my faith and my belief (BOTH). Please help me, Father God, where my faith and my belief (BOTH) are lacking. Amen.”

(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope [BOTH] in Jesus Christ, One So Just and One not sojourn [BOTH], this daily leavened bread.”)

You’re humbly in harmony, God and them.

You’re lowly in luxury, God you trust.

Christ walked humbly and lowly, though why Him?

‘Cause God needed to send you One So Just.

I’m humbly in harmony, God and grieve.

I’m lowly in longingly, God I yearn.

Christ loved humbly and lowly, though must leave?

No! God knew to send me One not sojourn.

“I AM Humbly in Harmony with you,”

says Jesus. “You Be Humbly in My Peace.

Not as the world gives harmony so few.

My Harmony to Humbly for Increase.”

Rhyming with “harmony” disharmony.

Why boast? Jesus is my Humbly in Harmony.

  1. I am humbly seeking harmony, it is out there for me, I know. The world doesn’t offer harmony, we have to find it with Jesus’ help.


  2. Well-said, Dag. I have always preferred the word, “harmony,” over the word, “balance.” “Balance” suggests to me a 50/50 and, if anyone is like me, doing 50/50 of anything is downright impossible. You would think that wouldn’t be true with my “BOTH” always going on. “Harmony,” on the other hand, is a word that has that fluidity to it and that flow to it. I tend to like fluidity and flow (BOTH) 🙏
