 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

poetryofadove

I have not already reached,
The goal that I have preached;
Not having finished the course,
Since I still had much remorse.
 
But I ran the race to win,
And confessing all my sin;
But Christ already had won,
Being the favorite Son.
 
I think not as a winner,
For I am still a sinner;
If I see a pretty girl,
It gives my mind quite a whirl.
 
So this is what I will do,
Continuing each day through;
I look to Christ what I lack,
And I never will look back.
 
I start to lengthen my stride,
In one pact as I abide;
And running straight toward the goal,
Winning the prize for my soul.
 
If you have faith as mature,
You should think of Jesus more;
Even though God is giving grace,
Stop thinking about this place.
 
God will show you how to think,
Better than poison you drink;
As you have learned so far,
So God heals your inner scar.
 
Listen up to what I say,
Living to trust and obey;
With living by example,
As written in the Gospel.
 
How often have I told you,
To open eyes and see through;
That many are enemies,
With deception in their knees.
 
Always stand firm in the Lord,
Remaining in one accord;
Stop pride in the shameful things,
Rather on what Heaven brings.
