 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

poetryofadove

I heard of your faith in the Lord,

As well as your love in the saints;

Showing they are loved and adored,

Without having any constraints.

 

I cease not to give thanks for you,

Remembering you in my prayers;

Because I know all that you do,

Being someone that really cares.

 

I pray to God of our Lord,

Who is the Father of glory;

That He gives you the just reward,

A spiritual inventory.

 

An inventory of insight,

And inventory of wisdom;

Enabled to have a delight,

What is stored up in His Kingdom.

 

May He give you revelation,

In the knowledge of Him that grows;

And knowledge of the salvation,

The mercy and grace He bestows.

 

Because of the eyes of your heart,

Have been enlightened to the Lord;

While knowing that hope does impart,

Impossible to be ignored.

 

What is the wealth totally worth,

Of His splendid inheritance;

Is it the same value on earth,

Being of the same importance.

 

What is the exceeding greatness,

Of His power to whom believe;

Does it assure you of straightness,

For inheritance you receive.

 

This power He exercised in Christ,

When He raised Him up from the dead;

After He had been sacrificed,

Now in heavenly realms be fed.

 

Far above any other rule,

Authority and dominion;

Far above phony ridicule,

From ridiculous opinion.

 

God put all things under His feet,

Gave Him to the church as the head;

The right side of God is His seat,

For sins of believers are shed.
