First Faith

First Faith

First faith has to fracture you
To bring you to brokenness
To reveal the sinfulness of your heart
And produce a seed for God to bless
To really believe that God exists
And in the person of His own dear Son
Will provide a completeness in a so great Salvation
When we believe in the Crucified One

One step of faith leads to another
Until the pathway becomes real 
Here a little ...there a little
As love overcomes our fear
Then as  plain as day we see the light
The Light of the world is Christ
Faith has landed us upon His Word
And our Victory is new life!

Have faith and believe my brother have faith
There's a God who cares about you
And if you by faith will draw nigh unto Him
He will definitely see you through
No higher blessing can be known by a man
Than to know the Author of faith
His signature signed by the blood of the Lamb
Believe and you shall be saved!

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
