How Inner Resting

How Inner Resting

How inner resting is my soul
Since I've placed my faith in Christ
I'm standing one hundred percent on the Word
Of Him who became my sin's Sacrifice
Now each day I rest assured 
And rest assured most assuredly
For I am safe in the Saviour's arms
Who wrapped His love around me!!!

Nothing can separate me from my God
For His Holy Spirit now lives within
My hallelujah Stabilizer
Giving me victory over sin
Yes I have great cause for rejoicing
For by saving faith I now can see
Though once I was blind and walking in darkness
Hallelujah praise God I  can see!!!

How inner resting is the heart
That has come to know its Maker
In the person and finished work of Christ
The Lord Jesus Christ my Saviour
If there's anything worth having more in this world
Than the Salvation of a man's soul
Is there anything?...anything?...anything anyone?!!!
Then tell me...I definitely would like to know!

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
