Father God, thank You that through fire, taken Higher. It is through Your Son and our Savior and Deliverer, Jesus Christ, that through fire, taken Higher. When we are scorched and torched (BOTH) in the flame, charred and cooked (BOTH) to a death crisp and will-o’-the-wisp (an illusion that misleads; a pale light sometimes seen at night over marshy ground)(BOTH), Jesus gives His sons and daughters His Waters to extinguish the pain from every BOTH. Our burnt body and blazed gaze (BOTH) is taken Above Terrain (Heaven) for His Healing (down here). Gotta get personal! I’m now through fire! Where did this fire come from and how did it spread so fast? Has it been spreading for a while now and I just didn’t notice the heat until now? When questions like these, through fire. When answers like “When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze” (Isaiah 43:2), taken Higher. No matter through fire or through storm (BOTH), I need Your Waters, Jesus, to extinguish my pain through fire, taken Higher. Please count me as Your sons and daughters through fire, taken Higher. Gotta get personal! I take on the pain of BOTH humans and nonhuman animals (your back might be to me, doggie friend in the picture, but I see you and I take on your pain through fire). Gotta get Him through fire (this unreal pain), taken Higher. I pray all of this in the Wonderful and Precious and Higher Name of Jesus Christ, the Name above every other name, including my own name. 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) through fire, taken Higher by Jesus, now and this daily leavened bread [BOTH].”)

When through fire, you will be taken Higher.

That said, you’re scorched and torched when in the flame.

That said, Jesus takes you Above the fire.

Without Him, your burnt body none “steak” claims.

When through fire, I will be taken Higher.

That said, I’m charred and cooked to a death crisp.

That said, Jesus takes me Upward the fire.

Without Him, my blazed gaze will-o’-the-wisp.

“When through fire, I extinguish with Waters,”

says Jesus. “My Waters I give, no pain.

That said, I take you Up, sons and daughters.

Without Me, through fire, how the Above Terrain?”

Gotta get personal! I’m now through fire!

Gotta get Him through fire, taken Higher.

  1. God is giving you exactly what you need T this moment to take you to the next level. It’s often fire, discomfort and challenge. It can be hard to go through but necessary


  2. “I know that as ‘Amen,’ Dag.” Thank you for pointing out the “Amen” through fire, taken Higher by Jesus Christ, and the necessary (not needless) scorch and torch and blazed gaze that is indeed necessary (not needless). That said and without Him (BOTH), it’s hard to go through the fire, discomfort, and challenge to know all of that was to know that as “Amen.”πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™
