He's In Charge

He's In Charge

Thank you Father for the thought
That though our problems may seem large
God is able to prove Himself strong
For He, for He...is in charge
When we are in His will we know
That trials and testings still come
But be not forgetful of this one thing
He records them...every one

Why shall we murmur and complain
Our steps are ordered by God
Do you not think He has your back
This needs to be understood
So gird yourself up again in faith
Our strong foundation when we believe
Remember the Word of the Lord gives grace
Ask and ye shall receive

So heavenly Father here I am
You know from whence I came
And as a child I humble myself
And praise your holy name
With full expectancy from your love
My vision may you enlarge
Knowing full well it's not me Lord
But knowing that He's in charge

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
