 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


I am thankful to our Lord,

Whom I serve with a clear conscience;

For my prayers are never ignored,

Since I reflect on His patience.


As clear as my ancestors did,

Just as I through each night and day;

Avoiding things, He would forbid,

A faith that will trust and obey.


As I remember of your tears,

Such a longing in seeing you;

Filled with the joy rather than fears,

Let the Lord guide how to pursue,


I recall your faith as sincere,

That has been keeping you alive;

A faith you cherish holding dear,

So that your sanctitude will survive.


I ask you rekindle His gift,

You must begin to fan the flames;

In order for you to uplift,

As a disciple to proclaim.


God did not give us His Spirit,

Not being a Spirit of fear;

Rather love that we inherit,

Of self-control that we hold dear.


So, do not ever be ashamed,

Testifying about the Lord;

Continue that He is proclaimed,

And remaining in one accord.


He is the One who has saved us,

Called us with a holy calling;

Not being based on works as thus,

But of His purpose befalling.


Grace through Christ before time began,

Made visible through Jesus Christ;

By His Father upon His plan,

The reason He was sacrificed.


He removed the power of death,

Brought us new light through the Gospel;

Eternal life after last breath,

New promise unto the people.


Guard what is entrusted to you,

Hold to the standard that is sound;

Through the Holy Spirit pursue,

For keeping you heavenly bound.
