AS MUCH AS DEPENDS ON GOD

Pin on decorations
Father God, thank You that as much as depends on You for PEACE. This God Sonnet was inspired by the Bible Verse: “If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men. Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, ‘Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,’ says the Lord” (Romans 12:18-19). On a more personal note, this Bible Verse has ALWAYS challenged me. Why? Because i feel if i had to depend on me to live peaceably with all men, i feel i could NEVER accomplish this. But as much as depends on God for PEACE, i feel i could ALWAYS accomplish this. Maybe this is why Your Son and our Savior and Deliverer, Jesus Christ, said this: “PEACE I leave with you, My PEACE I give to you; NOT as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid(John 14:27). As much as depends on me to live peaceably with all men is to depend on worldly peace. As much as depends on God to live peaceably with all men is to depend on the PEACE of JESUS! Not that i am looking to rewrite Romans 12:18-19; only that i am looking to live peaceably with all men as much as depends on God. And speaking of “i” and “all men” (BOTH), i release them as i push through; i decrease me to be set free (BOTH). For lease is “i” and “all men.” For sale? Forever Home, Forever Him, “the Lord is my Shepherd, BOTH staff and rod” (Psalm 23:1, 4). I LOVE that picture for this God Sonnet! Speaking of “rewriting,” I would change only one word of that picture, and that is the word, “it,” for a dove is not an “it” but a living, feeling being just like humans. This goes for sheep for PEACE, as well. Other than that, yet another instance of how God uses nonhuman animals to get His Point across. “Ask the animals, and they will teach you” (Job 12:7). I am most definitely not looking to rewrite that Bible Verse😉. i pray all of this in the Wonderful and Precious and PEACE 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 about depending on me to live peaceably with all men. Amen.

(God’s Sonnet by timothy j. verret; “it’s how i cope to hope [BOTH] to live PEACEably with all men as much as depends on God this daily leavened bread.”)

As much as depends on God, you at peace

with all. Let not much depend on just you.

As much as depends on God, you release

them all. Let much depend on you push through.

As much as depends on God, me at peace

with all. Let not much depend on just me.

As much as depends on God, me decrease

for all. Let much depend on me set free.

“As much as depends on God, I AM PEACE,”

says Jesus. “Let not much depend on them.

Depend only on ME with them for lease.

For sale? Forever Home, Forever Him.”

The PEACE of the Shepherd, BOTH staff and rod.

Sheep for PEACE as much as depends on God.
