 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

poetryofadove

I remind you to rekindle,

The gift from God that you possess;

Since you are being a model,

To bring you spiritual success.

 

God gives not a spirit of fear,

But of power and self-control;

Of a love that cherishes dear,

So, He can inhabit your soul.

 

Be not ashamed to testify,

About our Lord or of me;

Never to think of to deny,

The loyalty your faith can be.

 

By His power accept your share,

Of suffering for the Gospel;

Showing others that you do care,

As you tell all of the people.

 

He is the One who has saved us,

Called us with a holy calling;

Not based on our works as thus,

But His aim for grace befalling.

 

As granted before time began,

But now has been made visible;

Through the appearing in His plan,

That Jesus is invincible.

 

For He broke the power of death,

Brought life and immorality;

The Gospel enlightens each breath,

Raising spiritually.

 

For I was appointed to preach,

And poetically proclaim;

Gospel poetry as an out-reach,

While glorifying His name.

 

Because of this I do suffer,

But I will never be ashamed;

Knowing that Christ is my buffer,

Whenever He has been proclaimed.

 

For I know the One I believe,

In whom that my faith has been set;

Convinces me what I receive,

A reward not begotten yet.

 

Hold to the standard of sound word,

Protected and entrusted source;

Through the Holy Spirit as heard,

Remaining on the narrow course.
