Sense The Presence Of God

Sense the presence of God
Get a whiff of eternity
Look at the beauty and behold it
For He's made it all for thee
We have certainly come a long way
Since the very beginning of man
But sin has never left us alone
Always attempting to do us in

Having thoughts about yourself
Your life is on the fritz 
Well there's a loving Saviour at hand
Who will give you a genuine fix
Acknowledge your need of Christ my friend
And change will come your way
For you must die to the thoughts of yourself
And learn to trust Him and obey

Satan goes about as a roaring lion
Continually trying to do us in
Time to pursue a faith adventure with God
And brother you're sure to win
For faith praise God is the Victory
We have the Father...the Spirit...the Son
The Creator and Manufacturer of grace
Forgiveness's marathon!

How sweet the taste of knowing the Lord
It's been a real hallelujah for me
I need not be forced to sing a hymn
It's my song of my soul set free!
Don't use emotional bandages
To cover the blight of your sin
But come fully surrendered to do God's will
In Jesus name I pray...amen!

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
