Be Changed

Be Changed

Be changed from the inside out
Not from the outside in
This is only possible
If you deal with your sin
For sin separates us from God
Our number one enemy
And sure deliverance can only come
When Lord Jesus sets us free

There's complexity in our thinking
When we get the order wrong
We think we can change ourselves
But friends we're not that strong
We are but a speck of dust
In God's distribution
Only He can change a heart
And bring it to fruition

So how's your life going
Are you in a place of rest
Or living in great turbulence
You know our God can bless
If sin is your slave master
Then change allegiance now
Repent of sin and be ye saved
I'm glad you asked me how!

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
