 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


Everything that was a gain,

Now considered to be a loss;

If the sin I do not refrain,

Because of Christ died on the cross.


I consider everything,

To be a loss within my view;

On knowing what Jesus does bring,

Of having a surprising value.


Because of Him I have suffered,

Loss of all things considered crud;

But because of Him He buffered,

That He cleansed with the crimson flood.


So, I find in Him righteousness,

Of my very own from the Law;

Through faith in Christ gives blessedness,

From God based on faith cures the flaw.


My goal is to know Jesus Christ,

And power of resurrection;

Fellowship has become enticed,

That guides me towards His direction.


Assuming I will somehow reach,

The resurrection from the dead;

For I know that the Scriptures teach,

The nourishment what I need fed.


But I know that I reached my goal,

Am already fully mature;

I make my effort for my soul,

Temptations that I must endure.


I have not yet in taking hold,

But knowing the one thing I do;

Going forward that will unfold,

Leaving the past not to construe.


I pursue as my goal the prize,

Promised by God up in Heaven;

A treasure to open my eyes,

Inheritance to be given.


All as mature should think this way,

God will be revealing to you;

And no longer going astray,

Good deeds that you should always do.


We should live up to truth attained,

Observe all of those who live right;

From the temptations be restrained,

While remaining in the light.
