Make Your Primary Relationship

Make Your Primary Relationship

Make your primary relationship
With Jesus Christ the Lord
When He is first place in your life
It will be observed
No more cussing from those lips
For they've been sanctified
Set apart to praise the Saviour
The One before denied

And a new found love for God
And a love for His Word
A genuine willingness to tell others
About the risen Lord
And praying now with a heart
That comes from being forgiven
To offer hope and eternal life
Of a Salvation that's for the taking

So make it the first most thought today
Give your heart a nudge
May you be quickened by the Spirit
And from His wooing don't budge
Is Jesus Christ Lord of all
Will you leave on a Heavenly trip
Not only plausible but possible friend
If He's your primary relationship!

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
