Are You Hurting

Other Poems by Gary James Smith


Are you hurting from a distance
As you watch your life unfold
And the havoc that surrounds you
From the stories that are untold

And reminders ever present
Of the history of the past
And enduring each new day
Wondering how long this pain will last

You know those anguished moments
That have stayed upon your mind
That you wish could simply disappear
And leave them all behind

When memory lane is haunting
And the hurts increasing so
Well my friends I've great news for you
There's a Saviour.Who loves you so

Ever present is that Saviour
And your hurts He feels them too
So anxious is He to save you
But He needs some help from you

He is waiting for your confession
For your turning away from sin
For your acknowledgement of His presence
For your will to trust in Him

Then your new day of forever
Living in the Father's grace
Will be an ever present possession
When you seek the Master's face...

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
