God's Design
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith


God's design for my life ...was one  I did not choòse
I simply followed His leading...I felt I could not lose 
For He had wondrously saved me,,,I knew my sins forgiven 
Once destined for the gates of hell..now bound for glory "heaven"
My walk of faith first wavering..then a more stèadfast stance
My victories came little by little...it wasn't circumstance 
But prayer it lead me onwards..one step at a time 
Seeking   Father's direction ...obeying His đesign

Question marks? You betcha. ..hey I'm only human
But always trusting the results with God...each and everyone 
For He who holds tommorow. .keeps me day by day 
Whether in sickness or in health. .I'll trust Him all the way
He's never failed me...never!....Faithful. ..Just and True
Yesterday, today, forever. .His mercies ever new
Yes where He leads I'll follow...each and every time 
Not a lonesome path for me...but led by God's design!

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
