I Don't Try To Figure Out

I don't try to figure out the will of God for me
And lean not on mine own understanding but trust Him explicitly
For He knows better than I do the steps along the way
Mine to follow in obedience with a determination to pray
I don't want to miss out on blessiings because of stubborness
But to live a yielded life ready for God to bless

I've been observant of friendships of others close to me 
And watched the love displayed by them poured out so lavishly
Yet far and above that love Lord Jesus has bestowed
A love that forgives the deepest sin and washes white as snow
Wonderful now to live with a reliance in such a Friend
Let praises for that Saviour live and never ever end

Each day has its own scenarios there are hills and valley days
Mine to obtain an equilibrium and a constant tongue of praise
So I rest in my Saviour He is my all and all
And in spiritual preparedness trusting Christ for whatever may befall
Praise God for the life of faith that's what living is all about
The other stuff that comes along I don't try to figure out!

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
