I've Learned

I've Learned

I've learned to leave with God
The things I cannot change
And give them over unto Him
So He can rearrange
And bunker down in prayer again
Praise God I can do that
And wait upon His will for me
This is a glorious fact

God has blessed His servants so
Who leave the results with Him
And will dually chastise the disobedient
Who walk far off In sin
It's so easy to be judgemental
It is our natural bend
Deliver us O heavenly Father
From this I say amen!

Let me take care of my own life
It is a task to do it
Help me to live a peaceful life
And to your will ensue it
For Thou art worthy to be praised
May I be worthy of your love
And live a simple God fearing life
Till I am called to live Above!

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
