Authenticity Is God's Desire

Authenticity Is God's Desire

Authenticity is God's desire
He wants the real you
Then to humble yourself before Him
To admit the sin in you
And put God in His rightful place
As the Holiness that He is
And call upon the name of the Lord
And trust in the Lord Jesus

In affirmation of that faith
The heart begins a stirring
With a desire to share that truth
With everyone within hearing
The Alpha and Omega
The Beginning and the End
The ultimate Benefactor
Our Saviour and our Friend

With full attention for our good
He undertakes for us
With such a love and tenderness
Employing His great grace
And now as His amazing love
Incorporates our very being
The love of God, in Christ, in us
Daily we're receiving

Absolutely the greatest story ever told
There's a healing balm available
Come now with a repentant heart
And leave with your cup full
Take the cup of Salvation
And give toast unto the Lord
Thanking Him for your wonderful deliverance
And the honoring of His Word!

Hallelujah what a Saviour!

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
