There's A Field Of Schemes

There's a field of schemes that Satan has
To distract you upon life's way
First you'll try one direction of his
Then he will throw another your way
The top three that are on his list
If you try them you're sure to lose
You've probably guessed them yourself as well
That's right!....drugs...sex...and booze

He's the manufacturer of such
For he hates the Godly way
Sex without marriage...non committal
It's here Satan brings dismay
Then the appetizers to tease
To hinder men when they think
Just a little bit of drugs on the side 
And of course don't forget the drinks

Satan sells it as a pleasurable idea
Eat...drink...and be merry
Your number one and don't you forget it
The top label on his stationary 
But don't buy into his deviousness 
He's not here to make you whole
Remember his agenda is to take your life 
His top priority....your soul!

Oh yes and I almost forgot
The love of money as the root of all evil
Some men who labor just to be rich
Are allured there by the devil
Never content with what they have
They still need just a little bit more
Will leave a path of surreal destruction
And rejection at Heaven's door

Praise God for the Uppertaker
That can forgive us for all our sin
That can take the pieces of our strewn lives
And put us together again
And to top it off as the Master He is 
When we go His way instead
We can live with the steadfast rejoicing hope
One day we will rise from the dead!

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
