Be Strong

Be strong and be of good courage
We find written in God's Word
Patient and faithful in waiting
While we wait upon the Lord
Effectually fervent in prayer
For this availeth much
If you want to see the hand of God
Then definitely keep in touch

Steadfast in prayer and in service
Seeking to do God's will
Faithful to what He's called you unto
Doing that "one thing" still
Being anxious for nothing
But in everything with prayer
Keep your life under submission
And God will meet with you there

He will bring that thing to pass
In prayer that you have offered
If you're delighting yourself in Him
Your heart desires will prosper
So pray until you're all prayed up
And then still pray some more
Let the beginning and end of your day
Be praise unto the Lord

For God delights to see His child
Down on bended knee
With heart attuned to the needs of others
Because of Calvary
For there was love stretched to it's limit
Love not for His own
But for the lives of broken people
Therefore be ye strong!

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
