 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

Let the lowly brother boast,
For having exaltation;
Joy with the Holy Ghost,
Knowing of his salvation.
With his humiliation,
Like a flower in the grass;
There will be devastation,
Dying off as time will pass.
The sun rises with its heat,
Causing the grass to wither;
Its flower falls in defeat,
As the serpent does slither.
For its beauty perishes,
Just as the rich man will fade;
Pursuits that he cherishes,
Crumble with assets are frayed.
Bless who will remain steadfast,
Bless who endures temptation;
For the test of faith will last,
To avoid vexation.
He shall get the crown of life,
Because he has stood the test;
Able to endure the strife,
Performing his very best.
God has promised those who love,
Avoid trials to mature;
Will have blessings from above,
To resist tests that allure.
God cannot tempt with evil,
And He will not tempt anyone;
That would have been the devil,
Tempting enticement has done.
Each person has been tempted,
Enticed by his desire;
No one has been exempted,
What Satan would require.
When desire is conceived,
It is giving birth to sin;
When finished death is received;
Corrupting you deep within.
But the gift of salvation,
Has offered unto each one;
Through faith and your confession,
You have been saved through the Son.
