God Leaves Us In Wonderment

God leaves us in wonderment
When we consider His ways
For His eyes are even on the sparrows
To meet their needs every day
When we plant a seed of faith
By the reading of His Word
It can begin a preparation by grace
By the which we can know the Lord

From the deepest of pain to the greatest of joy
God knows of our tribulations
He knows every decision of every heart
And as to the core of their motivations
For the thoughts and intents of the heart
Are of paramount importance to God
For therein is to be found of our life decisions
In our tendency towards evil or good

Emotions ran high that day
higher than the Cross
As God Himself had to turn His back away
From His Son who paid sins cost
The ramifications of my sin
Consumed the Father’s love
So much so that He sent His Son
To shed His own precious blood

To recover man and reconcile him
Towards this God's heart was bent
His.. to show us the glories of Heaven
Ours...is but to repent!
O the wonderment of God's love!
If only you could know His compassion
You'd surrender your heart unto His will
And live!!!.. with a clearer fashion!

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
