Pursuit Of A Soul

Pursuit Of A Soul

God is constantly on the prowl
In the pursuit of a soul
He is not willing that any should perish
But that each one be made whole
Stubbornness is such a sin
And pride along with it as well
Just these two traits as attachments 
Can lead a soul to Hell

How often we fail in the small things
To see God's omnipotent hand
Why even just the fact that you're breathing
Should be an offering for thanksgiving
But we're so often full of ourselves
To have room for some Deity
But just take your breath away
And where will you spend eternity

I trust you'll have a better perspective
If you find God in pursuit of you
For where will you go that He is not there
For He has every view of you
Keep a watchful eye and ear
Don't miss out when God's trying to bless
I'd settle anyday for a place in Heaven
Friend don't you settle for anything less!

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
