Jealous and Spoiled

Jealous of the Hope that youth affords

Jealous of Perspective that travel rewards

Jealous of the Trust of a little child

Jealous of the Zeal of a Patriot riled

Spoiled by the Riches of this life

Spoiled in a land without war or strife

Spoiled by receiving all that I need

Spoiled by the lack of the hunger I feed

Jealous of those miraculously healed

Jealous of Wisdom long life reveals

Jealous of entering His Kingdom today

Jealous of clearly pointing the way

Spoiled by The Message lost in the sound

Spoiled by the presence of loved-ones around

Spoiled by my books and Bibles piled high

Spoiled by the Knowledge that I am His child

Be jealous only of a relationship with God through the Spirit of God, Be spoiled only by His Love. 

“Or do you suppose that the Scripture is speaking to no purpose that says The Spirit Whom He (God) has caused to dwell in us yearns over us and He (God) yearns for the Spirit [to be welcome] with a jealous love?” James 4:5 AMP
