the land of the Living

hands formed together with red heart paint
Father God, thank You that in the land of the Living, we have Your Son and our Savior and Deliverer, Jesus Christ, who is all our Goodness. This God Sonnet was inspired by the Bible Verse: “I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the Goodness of the Lord in the land of the Living” (Psalm 27:13). Unless we believed that, we would lose heart and would be misgiving and unforgiving (BOTH). It’s when we start Your Goodness that we stop our badness of misgiving. It’s when we compart Your Goodness that we depart from our badness of unforgiving. It’s when we stop and depart BOTH. In the land of the Living was Jesus once there in Your Name, but they killed Him. Jesus will Return there to Live His Giving. What a Day/Hour that will be! Until then, so many here who are nonLiving. Until then, so much Christ for the land of the Living. On a more personal note, thank You, Father God, for taking me out of a place recently where I was nonLiving. You had me go through darkest days/hours to bring me back to Living. You had me go through darkest days/hours to bring me back to Loving (as the picture informs us). I was SO ready to exit and bow out from the land of the Living. I am now SO ready to stop and depart from the badness of misgiving and unforgiving (BOTH) to believe and receive (BOTH) the Goodness of my Jesus! Misgiving? Christ for the land of the Living. Unforgiving? Christ for the land of the Living. i pray all of this in the Wonderful and Precious and Live His Giving 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 misgiving and unforgiving (BOTH). Amen.

(God’s Sonnet by timothy j. verret; “it’s how i cope to hope [BOTH] for the Goodness of God in the land of Christ Living this daily leavened bread.”)

Unless goodness believed, you would lose heart.

you would exit the land of the living.

you will see the Goodness of God to start

when you stop the badness of misgiving.

Unless goodness believed, i would lose heart.

i would bow out the land of the living.

i will see the Goodness of God compart

when i depart from my unforgiving.

“Unless goodness believed, they would lose ME,”

says Jesus. “Goodness? ME, the land of the Living.

I Lived there until their badness killed ME.

I will Return there to Live my Giving.”

So many down here who are nonLiving.

So much Christ for the land of the Living.
