Going Against the Nature of Us





PAD Challenge day  22: For today’s prompt, write a nature poem.

Born with a nature to rebel
We, the people, get in trouble
Mastering our daily selves
requires submission and humble
heart and mind-endeavor
...putting God then others first
Contrary to human nature
with which, it seems,we are cursed

...but not forgotten or forsaken
God in us grants a new way
Amazing selfish desires
As we trust Him and obey

 All things are lawful for me, but not all things are helpful; all things are lawful for me, but not all things edify.  Let no one seek his own, but each one the other’s well-being. 1 Cor. 10:23

All things are lawful for me, but not all things are profitable. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be mastered by anything. - See more at: http://bible.knowing-jesus.com/topics/Self-Denial#sthash.saOIqVAo.dpuf

I still remember how my mom used to chuckle at how soon, even in a baby, Adam-nature was apparent...the rebelling to safety-gates and other restraints put there for their safety and well-keeping...
