 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


Consider it nothing but joy,

When you fall into a trial;

Testing faith trying to destroy,

Making you sin to defile.


Your faith produces endurance,

So, let endurance run its course;

Jesus gives us the assurance,

The strength of your faith will enforce.


Let endurance have its effect,

So that you are being complete;

An endurance that is perfect,

With memories not to repeat.


If anyone lacks in wisdom,

Ask the Father who will supply;

Which will flow down from His Kingdom,

Answering your questions of why.


Ask in faith without having doubt,

Doubts are like a wave in the sea;

The wind blowing it all about,

Being captured and never free.


Never suppose He will receive,

For the Lord is double-minded;

Just a matter that you believe,

As long as you are not blinded.


The believer of humble means,

Should take pride in His position;

And from His throne He intervenes,

In blocking the opposition.


But the rich person that has pride,

Should have his humiliation;

There is no place for them to hide,

During reconciliation.


When the sun rises with its heat,

They wither like grass to perish;

And are trampled under the feet,

Of the Lord to whom we cherish.


Happy is the one who endures,

The testing of toils and strife;

Blocking temptation from the lures,

For receiving the crown of life.
