 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

When Faith is Tested

Let there be all joy in you,
Each and every day through;
No matter where you may go,
That the blessings will follow.

As trials of any sort,
Are ordeals that will be short;
Testing you throughout this life,
With all the toils and strife.

We know testing faith and trust,
Gives power against the lust;
So we are able to cope,
While it is bringing hope.

Let it have its full effect,
So deceit cannot infect;
And you can be made complete,
Giving Satan a defeat.

If you are without wisdom,
Look to God and His Kingdom;
Make your request to the Lord,
And He will surely reward.

Doubt nothing within your heart,
So darkness can never thwart;
Like sea waves washing away,
Of all faith that lets you stray.
