Amen For Affirmation

Amen For Affirmation

Amen for affirmation
I am forever forgiven
With Jesus Christ now living within
I'm enjoying abundant living
And there's a love I never knew
That before could ever exist
It now has it's hold on me
And what a love it is

God has magnified Himself
As to what I knew before
Creator... Redeemer... Saviour... Friend
He's all of that and more
When sin released its stranglehold
To the which I was held fast
Nothing could describe the feeling
Of being free at last

His grace supplying all my needs
My faith in Him increased
And I was excited in prayer times
To see His power released
And joy proclaimed most effortlessly
The hymns I learned back then
And when next Sunday came along
We'd sing them over again

Affirmation blessed this soul
My foundation was secured
My faith in God and His Son
The Written and Living Word
My passion now infused by prayer
Lord help me win some soul
So they too may have affirmation
Jesus makes one whole!

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
