We're Created With An Emptiness

We're Created With An Emptiness

We're created with an emptiness
That only God can fill
Completeness is found... only found
And is not found until
Until we see our sin as such
As God sees it so
The product of one man's disobedience
A long long time ago

When Adam partook of the fruit
That God had strictly forbid
He and Eve tainted the garden
And from the Lord they hid
But God came searching for them both
He knew they disobeyed
And that initiated the groundwork
On which all sin was laid

And sin's fruition brought forth death
And mankind now was doomed
But God looked forward to the cross
The grave.. the empty tomb
And love poured out at Calvary
In a color that was red
That precious blood of Jesus Christ
Dying in our stead

And every heart that takes up faith
Will find that God is True
A rewarder of them who diligently seek Him
Are you a seeker too?
I pray dear friend you'll activate
What little faith you have
And our God will multiply it
As a mustard seed

Take up faith... take it up!
Surely do not wait
You will have an overflowing
If you come to HIm in faith
For believing faith has victory
Yes victory over the grave
Still the clarion call from Heaven
Only Jesus saves!!!

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
