It's Hard

It's Hard

It's hard to make decisions Lord
At times throughout the day
So many things seem to change
Our minds begin to sway
So draw us Lord at times as such
For You are surely near
Help us stand steadfast in you
And continue faithful in prayer

Pray without ceasing we've been taught
And to rejoice as well always
If our mind is stayed on You
You'll lead us in the Way
Let faith employ the Spirit's power
To see the victory won
And praise be offered back to You
And to your blessed Son

It's hard to not give You the praise
The outcome realized
To come with our petitions Lord
To You it is deemed wise
Left on our own we would fail
Would be our end at length
But praise God for Your mercy Lord
Your grace and for Your strength

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
