Get Fortified In Your Faith

Get Fortified In Your Faith

Get fortified in your faith
Make sure you're bunkered down
For the onslaughts that come against you
Your thinking must be sound
Don't grieve the Holy Spirit
But be faithful to the Word
Seeking to do the will of God
And well pleasing to the Lord

Make sure you are prayed up
And continually in prayer
Your rejoicing will come naturally
If your heart is focused there
And in communion with the Lord
What better place than to be
In constant fellowship with the One
Who died for you and me


Where inward Hallelujah's 
Begin their outward praise
For the joy of the Lord is our strength 
A testimony to Him of praise
Now I can face each burden
And bring them to the burden bearer
Each and everyone of them
I take them to the Lord in prayer!

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
