“Father God, thank You that we want nothing down here. When it’s our way and our call, it’s everything down here. When it’s Your Joy and Your Love, it’s nothing down here. ‘Every Good and Perfect Gift is from Above, coming down from the Father of the Heavenly Lights, who does not change like shifting shadows’ (James 1:17). It’s that down here, we won’t stay ’cause caused downfall and caused annoy. When we expect everything down here to please us and them, and we seek everything and everyone down here to please us and them, we are not pleasing You and Your Son and our Savior and Deliverer, Jesus Christ, Above. We want to go the HighWay, not go anywhere down here. On a more personal note, when it comes to pleasing me and them, I’m a codependent expert at this. I seek their approval down here over everything and everyone Above. It’s heartbreaking to realize, but I cannot have BOTH! I have to seek only the approval Above and not down here. I call this one of my many breakthroughs that keep breaking down my ego. It’s a painful break but a break necessary to know I’ve already been approved Above and need not seek it down here. The only thing that works for BOTH down here and Above is LOVE, as the doggie in the picture informs us. I must do everything in Love and everyone in Love (1 Corinthians 16:14). Love should be one of the easiest things to be done, but ‘the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak‘ (Matthew 26:41). Please make my spirit indeed more willing and my ego indeed more weak, Father God. I pray all of this in the Wonderful and Precious and Father of Lights 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 Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope [BOTH] in ‘I want nothing down here’ but only everything Above from the Father of Lights this daily leavened bread.”)
You want everything down here as your way.
You want everything down here as your call.
You want nothing down here ’cause you won’t stay.
You want nothing down here ’cause caused downfall.
I want everything down here as my love.
I want everything down here as my joy.
I want nothing down here ’cause I’m above.
I want nothing down here ’cause caused annoy.
“My Love comes from ME Above, not down here,”
says Jesus. “Want nothing down here, My Way.
Everything Perfect, Father of Lights. Fear
nothing down here. Love everything HighWay.”
May He ask,” My Love Above, sonneteer?”
May I reply, “I want nothing down here.”
