You'll Have To Look Into A Spiritua

You'll Have To Look Into A  Spiritual Mirror

You'll have to look into a spiritual mirror
To grade yourself with God
Friend where do I find one you may ask
My friend it's found in God's Word
We look mostly at outward appearances
Whereas the Lord...He looks within
To the very heart of the matter
The deceitfulness of sin

It's a weary road we travel on
When we decide to choose our own path
For there's a straight and narrow road that leads to life
It can be yours if you just but ask
Don't just take a momentary glance
But look at it through and through
You'll soon discover the awareness of
How that God is watching you

Your accountability is recorded
To every thought...every word...every deed!
To the importance of God's Word in your life
And to it....do you take heed?!!!
Don't let the father of lies
Bring you to the depths of despair
When there's a loving Saviour
Who can help you out of this sphere!

Praise God for the atmosphere
That spiritual blessings bring
Why I can rejoice all the day long
Because Christ is my everything
This old world will pass away
But God's Word will stand forever
Take a good look..into His Book
And become a born again believer!

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
