I"m Trying To Learn


I'm trying to learn not to be anxious
But to give everything over to prayer
I have to tell you it's quite a discipline
When you have so many cares
I have to say I've tasted the fruit
When I put to practice my claim
And gave the Lord glorious praise
When my effort was not in vain

I felt the results immediately
My soul returned to it's calm
I knew the Lord had answered prayer
I sensed His healing balm
My quite place remained supreme
It was just my God and I
And victory washed over my soul
I felt completely satisfied

It works! It works! It really works
I found myself a saying
And no one knew but God and I
It was a result of faithful praying
My rejoicing heart remained
In the true joy of the Lord
And God was glorified once again
For the honor of His Word

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
