My Heart Spills Over


Justa thinking!

What wonder in the blessing of Salvation...to have your soul saved for eternity and to have your heart right with God! It doesn't get any better than that!
A tremendous thought to think about during the course of your day! Yes...Jesus loves me this I know...
For the bible tells me so
And it's expressed with jubilation
When I think on this Salvation
I could jump and shout with glee!
Praise the Lord He ransomed me!
And put within my heart a song
That carries me all day long!
So when my mind
Thinks again on this
I'm thrilled with having His Righteousness. ...

Which leads me to this....


My heart spills over with gratitude
In moments of meditation
When I think of Jesus Christ
And His so great Salvation
What a blessing He bestowed
When He took my place
And offered me a pardon sure
Through His "amazing grace"

Not a simple thing it was
To hang for my sin there
In open shame for all to see
The depth of His tender care
But love heldfast those feet and hands
And bore that pierced side
And humbled Himself to an obedient death
A blow to all my pride

I have to hang my head in shame
My sin was part and parcel
For the price He had to pay
Part of Satan's arsenal
But grace poured out at Calvary
Recaptured what I'd lost
And now my heart is spilling over
What "Victory " at the cross!

Sin was dealt it's deadliest blow
O thank you Lord for that
A forgiving heart you now bestowed
To remain our " habitat"
And by your Spirit raising you
You became our Resurrection
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
Wrought Salvation to perfection!

So in my meditation time
When thinking of Salvation
My heart can never fully express
The wonder and elation
That I have in Jesus Christ
In Him who now has me
For He has filled my vision sure
Praise God for Calvary!

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
