 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

poetryofadove

Divine power gave us all,

Everything needed for life;

But for man after the fall,

We have had to cope with strife.

 

Godliness through His knowledge,

Called for His glory and goodness;

The Lord does acknowledge,

For a relative closeness.

 

By these things He has given,

Great and precious assurance;

Through love flowing from Heaven,

For coping through endurance.

 

So, through God that you may share,

Sharing in a divine nature;

Knowing that the Lord does care,

Making us a new creature.

 

Escape from the corruption,

Caused by evil desires;

Makes a divine disruption,

For lighting sinful fires.

 

So, make every effort,

Supplement goodness and grace;

For having peace and comfort,

By feeling of His embrace.

 

Have knowledge through self-control,

Self-control with endurance;

For godliness for your soul,

His love to build confidence.

 

Brotherly fondness gives love,

As agape piety;

For the qualities thereof,

Reducing anxiety.

 

Qualities are increasing,

For keeping you as fruitful;

Through our Lord unceasing,

Since His love is bountiful.

 

Those who lack these things are blind,

Shortsighted from the past sin;

Having a peanut sized mind,

Because of tainting within.

 

I endeavor that I may,

And enabled to think back;

When expiring that day,

A bequest that I lack.
