 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


Consider all as joy,

For trials of all kind;

For testing to employ,

That your faith just might find.


Life with tribulations,

Faith brings out steadfastness;

Heightens elevations,

For mature blessedness.


All has a full effect,

So, you may be perfect;

Lack nothing to affect,

Any pain to inflict.


If wisdom what you lack,

Ask the Lord to assist;

He will pick up the slack,

As problems do persist.


He gives generously,

To all without reproach;

Solving vigorously,

The problems that encroach.


In faith you need to ask,

Without having a doubt;

To assist in the task,

The outcome to workout.


For doubts are like the waves,

Tossed about by the wind;

Send to watery graves,

Someone not disciplined.


For you must not suppose,

Or taking for granted;

Be true what you propose,

With faith firmly planted.


Are you double-minded,

Unstable in your ways;

Do not become blinded,

Like anyone that strays.


Be humble as you boast,

In your exaltation;

That the heavenly host,

Builds on your foundation.


Bless those who are steadfast,

That can withstand the test;

Knowing to ever last,

Able to do their best.
