Being Saved Doesn't Make Us Perfect

Being saved doesn't make us perfect
For we still have sin in our lives 
But God is a loving and forgiving God
Who knows of our tears and our sighs
And when we come to Him in brokenness 
He's swift to attend to that prayer
That says..." please forgive me dear Father"
Praise God He will meet us there!

Don't hold on to past sin in your life
For Christ has broken those chains
That have bound you steadfast in your sin for so long
It's become your habit to wear them again
But be freed by His love and His great grace
For they are all sufficient for you
For if we confess our sins unto our God
He's faithful and just to make us anew

Walk in forgiveness...God's breath of fresh air!
And delight yourself in the Son
Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith
Where fresh victories are to be won
Enjoy His forgiveness...It came at a price!
His shed blood at Calvary
Look on Him saint...His sight is glorious
For He's a Resurrected Saviour to me!!!

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
