ISSUES

How many issues we face each day
That are outside of our control
Praise God for us who know the Lord
He takes our burdens so

We cast our every care on Him
We cannot take the stress
But give them completely into His hands
For He knows what is best

Ours...to pray...His...to do
We leave it to His will
Steadfastly trusting in the Lord
Who doeth all things well

As we watch the way of transgressors
And their neglect of the Son
We too acknowledge...it is a hard way
As they continue on

Whatever it takes Lord...whatever it takes
Bring them to their knees
Where in true repentance and humbleness of heart
They recognize their need

Sin...still the issue of the hour
Praise God...there's hope still here
Call upon that name of Jesus
And find that He is near!

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
