 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

The Foundation of Faith

We have a solid foundation,
That is as solid as a rock;
Coming from our salvation,
That the devil could never block.

For these words have been engraved,
On the inner wall of each heart;
That no longer being enslaved,
Because evil sin cannot thwart.

The Lord knows just who does belong,
And whoever worships the Lord;
Must be giving up doing wrong,
Or he will surely be ignored.

A good servant must not quarrel,
And be kind to everyone;
Like an angry dog to snarl,
Before the fighting has begun.

Stay away from the driving lust,
That will tempt you both day and night;
Remember only God you trust,
Doing what favors within His sight.

Pursue to increase faith through love,
Worship with your heart being pure;
Blessings will flow from up above,
Protecting you from things that lure.
