Lord Alter The Way People Think

Lord Alter The Way People Think

Lord alter the way people think
And draw their minds towards Thee
To think about their living and dying
In the light of eternity 
For you have created us for habitation
In a land that is fairer than day
The Lord Jesus Christ being front and center 
As the life...the truth and the way

As a loving heavenly Father
Who loveth the souls of all men
Who is daily on a conquest seeking
Those who are repentant of sin
And drawing hearts to consider
The worth of the death of His Son
To obtaining the grace of forgiveness now
And the rising to life once again...

Hallelujah for the Spirit of God
That can give divine implantation 
When the Word of God is read
And unfolds the plan of Salvation
I thank you Lord that the way of the Cross
Brings to light true liberty
And every mind that has its heart set towards God
Will find it a day of Jubilee!!!

Hallelujah what a Saviour!

I ask for that every day. The Holy Spirit's work in the hearts and minds of everyone is what I pray for so that every person sees their need of salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. Wonderful poem/

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
