    God told us that He is jealous
    and you know He don't lie
    so when you make something else your main
    focus and His existence in your life
    is secondary...

    the bible tells us seek out
    God's kingdom first-- before anything
    and then everything else in our lives
    would fall into place...

    so if you aren't listening to what God said--
    if you aren't putting Him first
    how are you going to prosper in all of
    your endeavors, wants, desires, goals...

    if you aren't finding a way for God
    to be glorified in all that you do
    what makes you think that you will be
    successful in what you strive for?

    Wildflower,

    What a poetic fire, you have put under our feets. Thanks for sharing what God has put in your heart.

    if you aren't finding a way for God
    to be glorified in all that you do
    what makes you think that you will be
    successful in what you strive for?

    God does so desire to be glorified in all we do, including what we write. He is a jealous God and it greives Him when we have a "two faced" pen of a double tongue. He should be glorified in everything we do and say. He doesn't want blessing and cussing to flow from the same mouth.

    There is so much in the poem you wrote. Let me hush now, before I get started. I can't help it. I love to see God glorified in this place.
