A Poem of thought

 Reckless Wavier


When pleasures this world one does savor
One's being then does this earth mesh
In the Lord one learns reckless wavier

As with Him one is given favor
One then can abandon calls of the flesh
When pleasures this world one does savor 

Understanding of Him as one's savior
Gives one strength to adjust desires afresh
In the Lord one learns reckless wavier

To the things this world that makes one stray
Staying focused on God this a must
In learning to these things to put away

Even when to everyone these things do lust
As worldwide it seems partaking the norm
Strength to deny the flesh in God one trust

To the ways of the world one need not conform
When pleasures of the world one does savor
He can to your heart and mind transform
In the Lord one learns reckless wavier

Thoughts: Being God's kid can be very fulfilling; especially when one learns to abandon the things that ties one to this world. In addition, a women is not born a women, she becomes a women when she becomes what God wants her to be and that does include reckless abandonment or wavier of things in this world that distracts her from fulfillment of what God wants her to be. That goes for all His kids. Abandon or wavier of the things of this world that would bring some pleasure in a worldly sense, but not in a spiritual sense to one's soul; to some this can be seen as reckless. "Insomuch as these people draw near with their lips, But have removed their hearts far from Me, And their fear toward Me is taught by the commandment of men" (Isiah 29:13. NKJV). We need a life in a relationship with Jesus, rather than in rituals of men. Consider Ruth in the Bible who left all she knew and her kinsfolk to follow a God she barely knew and became a servant to the Lord in comforting an elderly women in need of her. Who later in her abandonment of worldly pleasure and of rituals of men, married a very honorable man of God which was the grandfather of King David, thus brought the linage of Jesus into fruition because of her abandonment to the world as she knew in her time and her land; reckless wavier. As Matthew 19: 29 says, "And everyone who has left houses, or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands, for My name's sake, shall receive a hundredfold, and inherit eternal life". Not saying we should leave our loved one's only that we should put away and leave the things of this world that brings fleshly desires and not spiritual growth. Although being a kid of God does have abundant rewards, sometimes it requires us to say no to fleshly desires and abandon what seems the norm of the world in learning to be a Christian of reckless wavier.
