 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


Do not forget what I have taught,
It will help you what you have sought;
And keep all my commands in mind,
So you will be kept more aligned.
They will help you avoid the strife,
While bringing you a long life;
Any confusion will then cease,
Bringing you some good years and peace.
Do not let mercy and truth leave,
Attach them to faith and believe;
Put them on a yoke for the neck,
So you will not ever neglect.
Write them on a note in your heart,
Each day they will give a fresh start;
Then find favor and much success,
And surely then the Lord will bless.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
Have understanding to impart;
Acknowledge Him in all your ways,
No more your mind wanders or strays.
He will make your path straight and smooth,
Troubles and concerns He will soothe;
Allow Him to look through your eyes,
His wisdom will make you feel wise.
But consider not yourself wise,
Your mind is too small for the prize;
Fear the Lord and hate evil,
Make a footstool of the devil.
So then your body will be healed,
The Book of Life your name is sealed;
Ensuring you having good health,
And you will have abundant wealth.
