Is It Enough For You

The devil always charges
For a temporary fix
Giving you a good time
Is always in the mix
But remember he's the Deceiver
Your best interests aren't in mind
He'll always leave you thinking
"Try it another time!"

So off again we scurry
Looking for that fix
Putting out time, money, and effort
To obtain defeat for this
Their thinking becomes cloudy
Much to Satan's delight
He is wringing his hands with glee
" They're at it again tonight!"

So goes the rollercoaster ride
They're up and then they're down
Desperate as ever as they were
Have you been to that side of town
Are you tired of tempory fixes
Have I great news for you
There's a loving God in Heaven above
Who has a solution in view

There is a life full of freedom
The cost has already been paid
Purchased by the shed blood of Jesus
Who then up from the grave was raised
Now offering you as a gift
The offering of eternal life
And His Holy Spirit to indwell
For victory in this life

Is it enough for you
So great Salvation as such
To know the very God in Heaven
Loves you so very much
The cost to you...just repentance!
For Jesus paid it all
Living a life from forgiveness's fountain
Why not today on Him call!

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
