 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

Bait and Switch

Always try to do your best,
Especially with a test;
So many different ways,
Satan wants to see who strays.

It is testing your faith and trust,
On being lured by some lust;
And see if you can endure,
With enticement from the lure.

You are mature and complete,
If Satan does not defeat;
To set your heart afire,
By a burning desire.

If wisdom you need to know,
To God is where you should go;
Explaining it all in prayer,
On problems you need to share.

Never try to have a doubt,
About God helping you out;
He is generous and kind,
Will comfort to ease your mind.

For if you truly believe,
Then you will surely receive;
Because God will help your plea,
And toss them into the sea.
