A Poem for Thought


Gambling Perspectives & Precautions

Life today, we have to use much cautions
Help us Lord with money in using
Gambling perspectives & precautions

Greed for money can make for incautions
Ignoring how to one's soul abusing
Life today, we have to use much cautions

Possession under control takes cautions
Where one has free will in choosing
Gambling perspectives & precautions

Love of money can change a person's view
In making decisions that leaves one hurt
Only to after does one have a clue

If to this one avidly does exert
Continuing down to destruction
Harm to one's soul is then insert

Love of money is an abduction
Life today, we have to use much cautions
Help us Lord in it's construction
To use gambling perspectives & precautions

Thoughts: Trading of skills, services, and goods does still exist in parts of the world; heck all over the world. However, most the world today live their lives through acquiring and use of money. Thus, inevitably have to utilize the use of money. But the love of money and in acquiring it in any means possible, can turn one into a greedy person; which, greed being one of the deadly seven sins made possible in living in this world. In using money today we have a limited choice due the functioning of today's governmental institutions of society. It is love of money that has created our current means of utilizing money. For example: We put our money into banks, trusting that it is safe. This truly is a gamble when we do that, but much of society functions in this manner. We end up gambling with our money when we use banks, being not in control, rather governmental institutions are and are being greedy in controlling our hard earned money. In a personal perspective; although, I do not like banks, how else am I to function in today's government run society that controls how we use our money? It's when we use these monumental governmental tools of society in unneeded and unnecessary gains where it becomes a love of money and can create unnecessary and sometimes unwarranted strife in one's life and to one's soul. In other words; knowing, right now, we have to use certain societal tools when it comes to our money, we can still be cautious of not getting greedy with these tools. It's called free will. Also, in the investing arena, we gamble our money every day. It's part of that arena. My perspective on this is, investing is not a bad thing, it only becomes bad when one invest more than they can afford to loose; thus, implementing greed on the hope of high gains. That’s gangling! The love of money can turn one into a very greedy person; thus, can greatly affect one's person in straying away from the faith and their possible entrance into heaven. "For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows." (1 Timothy 6:10. NKJV). Avidly and unnecessarily gambling with one's money, that God blessed one with, is the love of money. In today's world of a governmentally institutionalized society, it takes gambling perspectives and precautions in not becoming a greedy person in straying away from one's faith in God.

Godly Woman by Andile Andy (Really like this Poem)

Godly Women by Andile Andy A woman who walks in God's love. Reflecting the beauty of the father above. Who is not defeated by things most men find tough. A woman whose not just a pretty face But a woman of God's grace Beholding God's face A woman who lives knowing she's headed heaven in God's place. A woman of good character, not better competence. A woman who symbolizes the goodness of God by her excellence. A woman who pray for her house, and other residence. She walks with the Lord shouting, pleading's how me the way oh God'. I'm talking abhor a woman whose 'BAD'. Baptized and delivered. I'm talking about a woman whose 'MAD' Magnificent and devoted. I'm talking about the forever loved lovable leading ladies. Who help us see the best in our daddies. A woman whose blessed. And knows that can never be reversed. A woman who does not Drink, But raises the bar. A woman who prays to properly Think, before making decisions that will p

Sadly Informing

 Hi guys, I’m will be making many decision over the course of the next several months. Sadly I’ve made one decision that was a really hard decision for me to make. I’m letting my longtime  “rhymes” name to my blog go. I’ve used that name in one way or another now for several years. I have also used the “redemptive” name in different ways for a few years now. I’m letting both names go. You see, I’ve come to a place where I’m not writing much poetry. I’ve written close to 800 poem-including those unpublished and or tossed-over the course of the last six years; most of which was out of the need to express myself in poetry as that being the only way I could at the time. However, now my expressionable needs have changed. I will be focusing more on writing post, articles, novellas and or novels (maybe), and just plain promoting rhyming poetry on occasion; after all I still prefer rhyming poetry and did creat my own rhyming form. It wouldn’t make since for me to pull away from poetry altogeth
