Justa Thinking TWO POEMS

Justa thinking!

You know.we are always on the lookout for answered prayer but it seems to come as a surprise when we actually hear of how God has been working in an individual's life that we have been praying for....we are so used to having answered prayer in the little things that when the big one (answered prayer in regards to people) comes along we are stunned with hearing the blessing of God....thank you Lord....prayer is such of prime importance in our Christian life and walk with God.....reminds me of that hymn....I come to the garden alone while the dew is still on the roses and the voice I hear falling on my ear....the Son of God discloses
And He walks with me and He talks with me
And He tells me I am His own
And the joy we share as we tarry there
None other has ever known


Yes God loves to answer our prayers
It proves His faithfulness
If we delight ourselves in Him
Our God is sure to bless!

So pray on brother pray on
Your prayers will be answered too
They'll come in God's perfect timing
Which may be a surprise....to you!

Today as your walking and talking
Remember the Lord's with you there
Come apart....and enter your garden
With Him in the garden of prayer!

There in that moment of quietness
With heart filled up with His praise
Bring your petitions to Father God
And watch as He changes men's ways

God has an uncanny way
Of bringing answered prayer
Nothing happens for quite awhile
Then an explosion everywhere

On so many different fronts
God has been at play
And generating traits of His
Inner workings along the way

A changing life in process
God's timing to be sure
Now we watch with anticipation
What's God up to here

Tears of joy free flowing
Thank you Lord....amen!
Prayer has come to sure fruition
We will pray again!

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
