Simply Start Forgiving
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Other Poems by Gary James Smith

If you want a life of joy
With peace and real true living
Begin today a brand new way
Simply start forgiving
All the things you can remember
Bring them to the plate
Bitterness, pride,  and jealousies
Certainly bring the hate
Lay them at the Master's feet
Experience a taste of Heaven
Here Lord, I bring them all to Thee
Simply start forgiving
Watch the glow upon the face
The heart that's filled with peace
The songs of joy emulating from
Tongues that use to cease
Hear the songs of Zion sung
No temporary grace
Simply start forgiving
Transformation's taken place
Free thine heart from shackled sins
Tis the Master's way
Father forgive them, they know not what they do
Shall ours be different? Nay!
Triumphant hearts lead the praise
They want the world to know
Simply start forgiving
Tis the Master's way you know!

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
