 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

Faith is the assurance of things,

Hope of what to look forward to;

About what that the unseen brings,

Of the promises to construe.

 

For by it the people of old,

Had received their condemnation;

That the wrath of the Lord did scold,

About their abomination.

 

By our faith we understand,

All things created by the Word;

Because of that God does command,

Giving life to all that occurred.

 

So, of what is seen was not made,

Out of things that are visible;

Through the foundation that He laid,

To a place that is feasible.

 

By faith we offer unto God,

An acceptable sacrifice;

That is giving honor and laud,

For the One who had paid the price.

 

Through which He commends as righteous,

Looks down with favor for the gifts;

Giving blessings that are boundless,

For saving faith as it uplifts.

 

By faith we will be taken up,

For living after our death;

As we drink His blood from the cup,

Giving new life after last breath.

 

It is impossible to please,

Without faith for bridging the gap;

He ignores our prayerful pleas,

As Satan holds us in his trap.

 

By faith God will send a warning,

Of the events as yet unseen;

Saving from a sudden mourning,

Caused by a disastrous scene.

 

For the designer and builder,

Has laid a solid foundation;

Not to confuse or bewilder,

Rather by giving salvation.

 

From one man that was good as dead,

Gave birth to the stars in Heaven;

For the bread of life, we are fed,

Faith as eternally given.
