 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


A variety of gifts,

That does come from the Spirit;

Inspiration that uplifts,

In all that you do merit.


A potpourri of service,

That are given by the Lord;

Confident and not nervous,

To perform in one accord.


A mix of activities,

But it all for the same God;

That will cure anxieties,

While you honor and laud.


The same God that empowers,

Them all in everyone;

Through all the passing hours,

While reaching each day as done.


Ponder to the common good,

Certified by the Spirit;

For doing the things you should,

In what you will inherit.


By the Spirit one given,

The utterance of wisdom;

Or the knowledge of Heaven,

For the keys to His Kingdom.


The gift of faith or healing,

Miracles or prophecy;

Mysteries of revealing,

With special ability.


Speaking of different tongue,

Another of what they hear;

Interpret that someone flung,

A foreign language so clear.


Each empowered through the will,

As given from the Father;

To each of us to instill,

Relations with the Brother.


Just as the body is one,

The body has many parts;

So is the same with the Son,

As no portion ever thwarts.


Regardless as Greek or Jew,

If you are a slave or free;

No one can ever construe,

Having no eye and still see.
