I Make No Resolutions

Other Poems by Gary James Smith

I make no resolutions
But this one thing I do
I keep on walking with my Lord
And He will see me through
Day by day we travel
Yes my God and I
We have sweet communion
He completely satisfies
Praying and praising worship
He has given me a song
This  new heart just loves it
Just loves to sing along
Although I cannot see Him
I know that He exists
His Spirit is my witness
Saving faith is bliss
His Word will last forever
For in the flesh was He
God "incarnate" Jesus Christ
Everlasting "Deity"
He took away old habits
That  drained my "pocket book"
And all it took was repentance
When to the Lamb I looked
What faith then to "behold Him"
The Lamb for sinner's  slain
Begin your year with "this resolution"
I will trust in Jesus's name!

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
