God's Love Is On The Lookout

God's Love Is On The Lookout

God's love is on the lookout
With a forgiveness basket full
Looking for the brokenhearted
Whose lives have been through the mill
Who see themselves as wasted
Without hope...lost...undone
These are the very ones He's
To bring them good news of His Son

Then there's the prideful too
O I have no need of God
I  am doing very well on my own thank you
With a smugness thinking they're good
There's a heapful need of humbleness
That God has to deal with here
For there's none good no not one
To God's Word they too must adhere

All we like sheep have gone astray
And all of our iniquities 
Have been laid on the Lord Jesus Christ
Who died on Calvary
What category are you in
Give your mind this thought
Don't let this admonition such
Seem to you as frought

What scale of God have you numbered
With usage of one to ten
How is your mindset in regards to Him
I'm just asking as a friend
Today may be your turning point
Forgive me for my abruption 
Seek ye the Lord while He may be found
Do it now without interruption!

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
