 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


Things once considered of value,
Now considered worthless in Christ;
Because what I once did construe,
No longer do I feel enticed.
 
It is much more than all of that,
As I conceive everything;
To be worthless as a doormat,
For no pleasure no more they bring.
 
I am better off knowing Christ,
Since everything is worthless;
No longer does it feel sufficed,
Without knowing that God will bless.
 
So I threw all of it away,
In order for gaining His trust;
And not tempted to go astray,
By some kind of immoral lust.
 
For having a relationship,
With Christ means that I did not receive;
Obstacles that would make me trip,
Because I truly do believe.
 
Although I know there have been times,
That I have not obeyed His Law;
But have been pardoned for those crimes,
When repenting about the flaw.
 
I have the approval from God,
Through my faith and trust in the Son;
As His Spirit cleanses where flawed,
So I can be with Him as one.
 
So I am becoming like Him,
Imitate Him within His death;
Getting the vigor and the vim,
Achieving life after last breath.
 
Pay attention to those who live,
By example I give to you;
Knowing that His love will forgive,
For all of your debts that is due.
