God Moves

God moves in mysterious ways
To give His children rest
Oftimes it is no accident
By accident we're blessed
Big question marks on this side
Especially if one's died
But all revealed eventually
When we reach the other side

Must needed rest required
The Great Physician knows
From the very numbered hairs on our head
Even down to our very toes
He's got it all together
Right down to the umpteenth degree
After all He's the Creator
He's made us for eternity!

So cheer up fellow believer
God knows just where you're at
Though trials and tastings befall us
It does not diminish the fact
That God is in His Heaven
He's watching over us all
Not only us as human beings
But even the tiniest sparrow's fall

Take joy and give Him praises
My God how great Thou art
No mystery at all to You
Our lives... Your work of art
So rest in comfort brother
Receive His special grace
I'd rather be in the will of God
Than any other place

So thank You Lord for resting
You have said it's good
We often fail to remember this
As You have said we should
In hospitable bed, home, or work
I'll praise Thee all my days
And leave life's outcome up to You
Who moves in mysterious ways!

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
