An Amazing Story

It's really an amazing story
Sometimes when we look back
Here we thought we were off course
But God He had our back
God was always in control
And though sometimes we lost it
The thought of Him ever wavering
His mind had never crossed it

The ups and downs the wherewithal
He knew them every step
He orchestrated all the detours
Which to us were unknown as yet
When I try to fathom all the ways
That God has blessed so far
How miniscule I thought of them
Yet shows how much He cared

God is always on the move
To bring the lost one's home
He knows every intricate detail
Too use too woo each one
And so look back with reflection
Has He been seeking you
Turn to Him in prayer right now
Lord... What will Thou have me do?

Yours is an amazing story
The half is yet to be told
How He brought you to the Cross
To let His blessings unfold
That God in Christ was Crucified
He died on a cruel tree
So that your sins may be completely forgiven
The amazing story of Calvary!

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
