 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

poetryofadove

I thank God to whom I serve,

Giving me a clear conscience;

Along with courage and nerve,

Persevering with the patience.

 

I remember in my prayers,

Constantly through night and day;

All of the woes and the cares,

That seems to have come your way.

 

I remember all the fears,

Wished that they were filled with joy;

For chasing away the tears,

That have come out to destroy.

 

I remember the faith held dear,

That is dwelling deep within;

Continues to be sincere,

Guarding against any sin.

 

Remember to fan the flame,

Given as a gift from God;

As you go out and proclaim,

Show how to honor and laud.

 

God gave us a spirit,

Not of fear rather of love;

Powering our merit,

Having self-control thereof.

 

Be willing to testify,

Never ashamed of the Lord;

What He did do not deny,

Remaining in one accord.

 

For the power that you share,

From God through suffering;

For the Gospel shows you care,

Able to give buffering.

 

For, at one-time sin enslaved,

Until a holy calling;

And Jesus Christ came and saved,

From our vicious falling.

 

It was not for our deeds,

Rather for purpose and grace;

Granted for the unseen needs,

Before time came to embrace.

 

The Holy Spirit dwells in,

Guarding the good deposit;

Entrusted that you begin,

Sinful acts to inhibit.
