“Father God, thank You that You are the Eye of the storm. Your Eye can, sends, views, and grips our every span, each amends, every news, and each eclipse. We cannot perceive, receive, unfold, or uphold with our limited eye what Your Eye can, sends, views, and grips. We have human eyes, but You have Spirit Eyes for every span, each amends, every news, and each eclipse. And who else but Jesus Christ, Your Son and our Savior and Deliverer, is Your Eyes? ‘In BOTH storms, BOTH of God’s Eyes are Each Mine,’ says Jesus. And speaking of ‘BOTH storms,’ we all go through literal and figurative (BOTH) storms. Right now, in fact, us down here are getting ready to hunker down or Up with Hurricane Ida heading toward us. Right now, in fact, us down here and y’all (a ‘down here’ expression) up there are always going through literal storms, i.e., troubles, heartache, turmoil, and grief. It is only Up There, that BOTH of God’s Eyes put us at ease in BOTH storms. There IS a ‘Sign’ and His Name is Jesus. the Name above every other name. The ‘Sign’ IS Jesus and the Sign says, ‘if anyone wants to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and be following Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it. But whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. For what will a person be profited if he gains the whole world, but forfeits his life. And speaking of ‘save or lose a life,’ my prayers are with all of us who have life down here in the wake of Hurricane Idea and, of course, my prayers are with BOTH God’s humans AND nonhuman animals (and, yes, that most definitely includes saving or losing a life of farm animals, as the picture informs us). When we don’t save one of BOTH, we save none and lose all in God’s Eyes. When we save all of BOTH, we save all and lose nothing (BOTH) in God’s Eyes. What an Art Form it is when we trust in what God’s Eyes see! I pray all of this in the Wonderful and Precious and At Ease Name of Jesus Christ, and 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, especially with me hunkering down or Up in the wake of Hurricane Ida. Amen.” ? Or what will a person give in exchange for his life? (Matthew 16:24-26)
(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope [BOTH] in God’s Eye of BOTH storms this daily leavened bread.”)
Your eye cannot perceive what God’s Eye can.
Your eye cannot receive what God’s Eye sends.
In your BOTH storms, God’s Eye for every span.
In your BOTH storms, God’s Eye with each amends.
My eye cannot unfold what God’s Eye views.
My eye cannot uphold what God’s Eye grips.
In my BOTH storms, God’s Eye for every news.
In my BOTH storms, God’s Eye for each eclipse.
“In BOTH storms, BOTH of God’s Eyes are Each Mine,”
says Jesus. “I See every thing God Sees.
Whether hunkered down or Up, I AM ‘Sign.’
Follow My Instructions with you at ease.”
Trust in what God’s Eyes See; it’s an Art Form.
In BOTH storms, we seek God’s Eye of the storm.
