Would Our Heart Attitude
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

WOULD  OUR HEART ATTITUDE 


 


Would  our  heart  attitude be like Job's


In his trying days


When satan brought him grief and woes


And tried him many ways


When family and friends pointed fingers


As if they knew the cause


Bent with sure determination


That Job had many flaws


 


But praise God Job had personal favour 


With our God in heaven


Who let satan sift and try him


But he was brread unleavened 


He had such a relationship


With the Lord we read


Even when his wife suggested


Job he took no heed


 


Faith cannot be moved by actions


That are sent our way


Even  the very death of loved one's 


Does not our faith dismay


For when we have our hope in God


Our faith cannot diminish


As it was "authored by our God"


So to shall be it's finish!


 


Let your faith find it's resting place


In Jesus Christ the Lord


May it forever be established


In the "written Word"


When the storm's of life assail you


You will not quake  nor quiver


But remain steadfast in your faith


Received from the "true Life-Giver


 


This relationship like none other


Seals our dedication


Forgiveness for sin and Spirit indwelt 


Trumps every situation


We know our God and He knows us


No greater joy than this


All things work together for our good


Find me "greater bliss!"

About the Poet
I came to know the Lord as my personal Saviour in January of 1972. I was married on Oct 21,1966 to my wife Linda who also loves the Lord. We have ten children and now twenty-four grand children. In Aug 2012 we got the announcement of the birth of our first GREAT grand child (a baby girl). I was thrilled to find others of like precious faith and belief in Jesus Christ. Hallelujah! What a Savior! I am presently living in Champion, Alberta, Canada but we are originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada. That is where the poem Canadian Tribute to America was birthed. One Sunday as I walked across the city on my way to church I came to the top of a hill and looked across at Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. After watching the events of the Sept 11 tragedy it was weighing on my heart and mind and the Lord gave me these words. We came to Calgary and when my oldest daughter saw this poem she said, �Dad, what�s this?� and I said a poem and she replied �Dad, that�s not a poem , that�s a song� and she then went to the piano and began to sing and play it. The result of which turned into a song entitled, A Canadian Tribute to America which she recorded on CD. garyjamessmith2005@yahoo.ca
