You Will Find What You're Looking F

You Find What You're Looking For

Have you ever noticed that phenomenon 
It happens everyday
People looking for this and that
They have an appetite tray
Some of their allurements though
Can lead to a soul's destuction
So be careful what you're looking for
For it may lead to utter dissatisfaction

What's your quest in life each day
What are your usual appetites
At the end of the day if you've given contemplation
Has it brought you a better way of life
Or are those same old appetites 
losing their taste
And you're looking for something new
Friend...taste and see that the Lord is good
It will be a blessing unto you

Seek ye the Lord while He may be found
Call upon Him while He is yet near
Be reconciled to your heavenly Father 
Of Him have a reverential fear
For His is the Kingdom and the power and the glory 
Hallelujah for Christ's name
The only name under heaven given so that men might be saved...
Now that's what I would call Heaven!!!

When He's Lord of your life
you'll have found a treasure
Yes He's the pearl of great price
For He shed His blood for your redemption
By His offering as sins Sacrifice
Check Him out as an appetizer
You'll find Him in the Word 
For there's not a Friend like the lowly Jesus
Of whom maybe you've never yet heard!

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
