What a Refreshing Moment

What a refreshing moment
When God comes through with prayer
And has the answer beforehand
He was always there
It proves to me His nearness
It all of life's circumstance
And my joyful living by faith
Is not a life of chance

But when I'm surrendered to His will
His eye is on this sparrow
Especially when I live for Him
And walk the straight and narrow
Happy are those who know the Lord
A life of abundant living
And overflowing from His love
A life of joyful giving

Be Thou our vision Lord we sing
Keep our hearts a praising
One day soon we'll hear the trumpet
And all the saved be rising
What a day glorious day t'will be
To be with You in glory
Motivate my heart today
To share the gospel story!

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
