 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

Praise God, Father of our Lord,

He has given us a new birth;

His mercy cannot be ignored,

A new life while here on earth.


New life that has a confidence,

Which is alive through Jesus Christ;

Came back to life as a defense,

Against when we become enticed.


A new life with inheritance,

That can never be corrupted;

As confession in penitence,

Can never be interrupted.


The inheritance waits for you,

Up in Heaven where it is kept;

As long as faith will remain true,

Christ as your Savior you accept.


You are guarded by His power,

Through the faith for your salvation;

Revealed at an unknown hour,

The end time as a foundation.


You are happy about these things,

Even though you have to suffer;

Different kinds of trouble it brings,

Knowing Jesus is your buffer.


Testing faith is for the trouble,

As fire tests genuine gold;

The weak will lie in the rubble,

While the real will shine so bold.


For your faith is far more precious,

And while it passes the test;

Gives praise and glory so wondrous,

Honor to God at its best.


Although you may have never seen,

Jesus Christ you give Him your love;

Because you believe what had been,

Knowing that He is up above.


The prophets carefully research,

Everything God does reveal;

Bringing salvation through His church,

Favoring God to His appeal.
