Encourage Yourself

Encourage yourself in the Word of the Lord
It has such healing balm
When it is applied to our hurting hearts
The healing has just begunl
Line upon line...precept upon preceptl
The paramountation of truth
Will all add up to fill you with grace
Not one of its teachings uncouth

For our benefit is God's Word 
To lead us to the Way
To find forgiveness for our sin
And learn to trust and obey 
Jesus Christ is our all in all
When we put our trust in Him
And faith 
becomes our victory
Praise God Christ conquered sin!

I am encouraged every day
By the promises in God's Word
Life after death O hallelujah!
Praise God our ears have heard...
We have the freedom to believe
To believe on the life saving One
Saved! Saved!...By the power of the blood!
I'm saved by the Crucified One!

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
