New "Words of Inspiration" Poem

 Identity of Self is The Lords


For he was told to sever his cords
To leave security and familiar place
Where identity of self is the Lords

He moved to where the Lord affords
Leaving inheritance to be displace
For he was told to sever his cords

God gave promise to this awards
Many descendants and land to embrace
Where identity of self is the Lords

His connection to God, filling this void
As the only deity he would need
Cultural traditions he did avoid

For with this separation he is freed
And given in leadership a nation
A promise in obedience God decreed 

All the earth blessed in this migration
For he was told to sever his cords
Having faith in the Lord for duration
Where identity of self is the Lords

Inspiration: Book of Genesis, Chapter 12:1-9. Key Verses 1-3 "Now the Lord had said to Abram; "Get out of your country, From your family And your father's house, To a land that I will show you. I will make you a great nation; I will bless you And make your name great; And you shall be a blessing. I will bless those that bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed" (NKJV). Verse 7 "Then the Lord appeared to Abram and said, "To your descendants I will give this land" (NKJV).
