When Coronavirus Closes Churches

When Coronavirus Closes Churches

When coronavirus closes churches
And the devil begins to smile
Then God uses the internet
To bring churches the extra mile
So many sites now on line
Taking care of preaching and singing
Live broadcasts respectively
Praise God the joy bells are ringing

And family's doing family
Back to the basics here
Where love can be spread
through our words and our actions
What a treasured blessing there
And prayer becomes a reality
We know it is not of chance
But God has directed miraculously 
To bring about each circumstance

Father help us to not miss it
In this... our learning curve
For those of us who are Christians
Help us...to others serve
And in a genuine humbling 
May we again Lord learn to pray
Turning from sin that's in our lives
So Your healing may come our way!

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
