The way of man is sweet when prayer purposes his hands and all thoughts bow to a sovereign King. When tendencies are upright and Christ’s solace is welcome. The man who ponders heaven may surely rejoice in life, and every truth shall surface in due season.

Delicious is the fruit of a man emblazed by God’s voice. His submission to understanding yields the syrup of life. Beware the heart’s confection burns: lavish, lawful living corrodes the taste of joy, and bitterness overcomes his shell. When man replaces the mirror of Majesty with a mirror of himself—his bones know not truth. Rejecting this thick, sugary salve is a wound self-inflicted. The tongue tastes grief and speaks forth sorrow. Limbs attack life in an instant, and know no healing. Such chaos is inopportune for remarkable living; distrust melds in misery—like strawberries in sugar commiserate. Nothing good is produced when one thinks more of their own opinions than of God’s. After all, our thinking is flawed—without prayer.

It is our purpose to thoughtfully crave God’s holiness and the sweetness of His fellowship that returns us no loss.

Prayer can surely make all the difference.

Interesting title...you had lots of flowery language and some good thoughts. Personally, I prefer to read something written a little more "down to earth" and in language that's easy to grasp, particularly when conveying Biblical truths. But we're all different and that's ok.

Keep writing!
