Your Grace Is Sufficient for Me
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

YOUR GRACE IS SUFFICIENT FOR ME




When sin is left unattended and brings its doubts and fears


When peace and joy no longer have their rule


When paralyzed by disfellowship and a daily walk with Thee


I thank You that Your Grace is Sufficient for me




Your all forgiving nature prods me to swiftly seek Thy face


Your love surrounds with reminders that You care


You'vepaid the price for sin and that You've done sufficiently


I thank You that Your Grace is Sufficient for me




Momentarily disfunctional when we live in the flesh


The Spirit of the Living God is grieved


Repentance brings back fellowship, restored again to Thee


I thank You that Your Grace is Sufficient for me




I thank You that Your Grace is Sufficient for me


For when sin abounded it abounded much more


Once again, the Lord is Good, I know, I've tasted, I see


I thank You that Your Grace is Sufficient for me.

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
