 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

Appreciate How Much

The Lord has filled me with delight,
Because of you having insight;
Knowing now what you are to do,
That is just right with each day through.

For before when there was a chance,
You did not appear to advance;
With being rude to disobey,
A tendency to go astray.

I have learned for to be content,
And every single intent;
For staying away from all sin,
No matter what spot I am in.

My life has been through poverty,
As well as through prosperity;
No matter the situation,
Joy comes out of my salvation.

I have learned the secret to live,
Knowing that my Lord does forgive;
And through Jesus He strengthens me,
Provides the daylight for to see.

I am looking not for a gift,
To motivate and to uplift;
The opposite is really true,
For the inheritance to renew.

Having too little or too much,
The Lord provides a gentle touch.
And will fill your every need,
Having not resorting to greed.
