His Delay

His Delay

His delay is not His denial
Hold on the answer will come
Your's to wait in an attitude of prayer
God's will, will be the outcome
Remember with Him there's eternal
We're caught up with the issue of time
Hold on dear brother the answer will come
God has your reference in mind

I've made in my heart resolution
I've decided to trust in His will
He said be ye anxious for nothing
I'm resting in His ...peace be ye still!
He's the Captain... of my Salvation 
My anchor in the time of storm
Remember He's the God of the impossible
That's everything out side of the norm

Though trials and testings come daily
My hope is in Thee my God
Your delay is not your denial
And on that premise I've stood
I know your arms are from everlasting to everlasting 
And in them... I know I'm held fast
For it's you Lord who holds the future
And as faithful as you have held the past

Hallelujah what a Saviour!

Yep! That's what faith, hope & trust is all about!
His timing is perfect - we've come to "want it now!"

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
