Finished December 22 and 24

Carol Gravante

I was awake about three different times and each time these 3 words which rhymed were part of what was flowing, guess, guest, possess…. I was led and went to the rhyming dictionary and found more… Feel like I’m supposed to write a rap… Holy Spirit I can’t do this…. He says he can….. Was it the orphan party and heard rappers last night?… Was encouraged enough to buy a CD… So maybe this influenced me…

I looked up on the web the rhyming words:


Yes, less, mess, press,  Guest, stress, duress, distress, process, possess, transgress, suppress, abscess, The press, oppress, repress, confess, Night dress, Address, caress, digress, Express, success, profess, Chess, undress, unless, forgiveness, wine press, excess, express, Princess, bareness, repossess, nonetheless, politeness, underdress, effervescence, decompress, over impress, outguess, guess, bless, press, depressed, obsess, digress , caress, process, regress, suppress, finesse, convalesce, reassess, SOS, convalesce, abidingness, over impress, IRS


This is what I came up with pretty quickly.


Yes, the press says the world’s in a mess… lots of stuff causes stress… especially the IRS, we need less duress. We have to decompress or it will become an abscess


Unless we profess and express our need for God on our way to success, in our own power of finesse, we can just end up trying to impress to accumulate … to possess excess.  No time for convalesce.  


Some repress their need for God and just guess they want to be a princess or a baroness full of effervescence and living at a fancy address. Never underdressed …Dressing to impress…. Playing chess with the guest in politeness… The wine press in full action 


Nonetheless when we call out our SOS and say “God, I am depressed, ” and allow God to repossess us, our body mind and spirit, and confess to him our need for him … and readdress our abidingness, we go through the process of submitting our bareness of our soul ….receive forgiveness…..he will address us as his princess and caress our spirits as he loves to bless!


Yes, we no longer feel the abscess… in His power, we suppress the transgress… We confess and address the need for success… The desire for excess turns into bless for others… The process is to reassess and profess my need moment by moment… We press in and some say we obsess over him… But yes, yes we are called to obsess in Jesus Christ. Fanatic!!! We don’t have to guess about our Eternal future… no longer having to impress people… we are honest with the IRS… no longer gives me stress… Success is expressed in obedience.


Bless The Lord… Yes, he blesses me… I’m his princess.


The press… They don’t express an interest in the people that are blessed actually they repress… They don’t address us at all…


No worries… The wine press is in full action… He is the vine we are the branches… The fruit of the Spirit we no longer repress… It is expressed with effervescence. Unless we confess while getting in our night dress we can’t decompress… We can’t outguess God when he wants to bless… Abidingness helps us press in… He is worth it!
