The Healing Power Of Love

The Healing Power Of Love

Love has such healing power
It's from God's dispensary 
The Great Physician knows each amount
That will be healing balm for thee
Don't be shy to pass it out
There's plenty in His supply
Love can heal the deepest of wounds
The wounds of our hurt inside

That's why I love to watch children
In the wonder of their innocence 
They express love so freely
Not dependent on circumstance
But we as adults hold back
Love must be to our specifications
If it doesn't fit all of our criteria
Love suffers with sure suffication

Lord break our heart's till they feel Thee
And find the true essence of love
For it's found in the fragrance of giving 
Giving because we love God
O heart take reference to Jesus
For an example of love to employ
He came unto His own and His own received Him not
Still...this did not stop His joy

For the joy that was set before Him
Christ endured the Cross
All of the scenarios we endure
Are insignificant compared to His loss
May we be stronger soldiers
In our service for Christ
And hold up high and exemplify 
Love!...because of His Sacrifice!

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
