Father God, thank You that we raise our praise for Your Son and our Savior and Deliverer, Jesus Christ. We are prelim because He is our Premier. We are His Hymn because He is our Rebirth. When we raise our praise for anyone here and earth (BOTH), there is no Jubilee or Trail to blaze (BOTH) for Jesus. In the depths of our despair, Jesus is our UpRaise. In the Heights of His Love, there is no better reason than that to raise our praise. Why? “BeLoved, let us Love one another, for Love is from God, and whoever Loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not Love does not know God, because GOD IS LOVE. In this the Love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent His Only Son into the world, so that we might live through Him. In this is Love, not that we have loved God but that He Loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. BeLoved, if God so Loved us, we also ought to Love one another. No one has ever seen God; if we Love one another, God abides in us and His Love is Perfected in us (1 John 4:7-12). Now, I ask you, are you needing any more reason than that to raise our praise for Him? On a more personal note, did you know that dogs like the one in the picture and all of God’s nonhuman animals can raise their praise for Him? They can, but I didn’t come up with that one on my own. “Let everything that has breath praise the Lord” (Psalm 150:6). This is not of my own originality. This is the Originality of Father God who is LOVE for BOTH humans and nonhuman animals who raise their praise for Him. Everything and everyone (BOTH) that has breath, let us raise our praise for Him. I pray all of this in the Wonderful and Precious Name of Jesus Christ, the Name above every other name, 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] as I raise my praise for Him this daily leavened bread.”)
You raise your praise for the Raising of Him.
You don’t raise your praise for anyone here.
Raise your praise of Him with you as prelim.
Don’t raise your praise of one who’s not Premier.
I raise my praise for the Raising of Him.
I don’t raise my praise for anyone earth.
Raise my praise of Him with me as His Hymn.
Don’t raise my praise of one who’s not Rebirth.
“Raise your praise for One Who is Only ME,”
says Jesus. “I AM that One you must praise.
When you raise your praise for One Jubilee,
you raise your praise for ME, a Trail you blaze.”
In the depths of our despair, He’s UpRaise.
In the Heights of His Love, we raise our praise.
