 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


We have this treasure in clay jars,

For the power belongs to God;

That stretches to the farthest stars,

The reason we honor and laud.


We are experiencing trouble,

On every side but not smashed;

God pulls us out from the rubble,

Before the enemy has clashed.


We are not driven in despair,

Although we are very perplexed;

Because we look to God in prayer,

Concerned about what will be next.


Many times, being persecuted,

But we have not been deserted;

From many that have disputed,

The ones that are extroverted.


Deep inside is the death of Christ,

So, His life is made visible;

Professing what He sacrificed,

Eternal life is viable.


We are alive handed to death,

As being mortal for His sake;

Made visible with a new breath,

Since eternal life is at stake.


For death is at work deep within,

But new life is at work in you;

As the Holy Spirit cleans sin,

Making you as righteously true.


But since we have the same spirit,

Faith has been shown what is written;

Working with a righteous merit,

Although expect to be smitten.


I have believed therefore I spoke,

You also believe as you speak;

That the heathen calls it a joke,

Because of their faith has been weak.


We have done this because we know,

Which raised up Jesus from the dead;

To witness of the things we show,

As given in writing instead.


For our affliction is light,

Glory as an eternal weight;

That is able to shed insight,

While focusing on your fate.
