Im Waiting Upon You Lord Today
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Other Poems by Gary James Smith



I’m waiting upon You Lord today,
You know my needs before I pray.
I’m tired of walking in the flesh,
I’m laboring to enter into Your Rest.

I rededicate my life to You,
Ready now, Your will to do.
Something’s coming over me,
Captivating tenderly.

Your Spirit’s quickening, wooing way,
Has left It’s mark on me today.
To some this almost seems absurd,
But such is the power of the Word.

Breathing Life into my soul,
Believing It has made me whole.
Like a mighty rushing wind,
The Holy Spirit came within.

This washing, cleansing, like a flood,
The saving power of Jesus blood.
New fellowship again is mine,
I’m walking with my Lord Divine.

I’m not saved by feelings sure,
But now I’m feeling so secure.
I’ve trusted in the Saving One,
Now new victories will be won!

Hallelujah, praise that King,
He is now my Everything!
I’m resting in the wonder of,
Jesus Christ’s and Father’s love.

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
