A Valley

A Valley

I went through a valley more deeper more wider
Than I ever went through before
The problems kept coming  more higher and higher
My spirits were dashed to the floor
But my God sustained me and became my shelter
As the storms passed and calmness set in
I was renewed and refreshed by the Spirit
Ready now to live life again!

There's going to be bumps on your journey ahead
Some ruts that you think will not end
But hold on my brother for God's holding you
He's promised to always attend
When waves of discouragement hit you head on
And seem to come end upon end
There still is One who is walking with you
It's Jesus our unfailing Friend

Lord help me to rest in that glorious thought
These things... these things soon shall pass
We shall be with you forever some day
Where joy that's eternal shall last
When that last valley the shadow of death
Comes to cast gloom over me
I shall not fear for my Lord has conquered
And death has no captive in me!

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
