I Think Shadrack

I think Shadrack...Meschack...and Abednego
Had a lot of answered prayer
God was sure equipping them
For the furnace prepared with fire
There was no hesitation
In the acknowledgement of their faith
God was going to be with them
Whether by life or whether by death

What a testimony
To all those gathered round
What a challenging bold statement
An affirmation that their faith was sound
They who were deemed victims
Became victorious
The furnace only refined them more
As God came through to bless

Are you in a fiery furnace
But not one of your own making
Keep your faith strong in God
While He does the undertaking
For our God will bring glory
In spite of the against us odds
Remember we're just humans
But there's nothing impossible with God!

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
