My Pursuit Of God

My Pursuit Of God

I'm on a quest today

My soul needs some refreshing

It's outside of myself to gain it

It must be of God I'm guessing

So as I'm walking I'm praying

God reveal Yourself to me

I'm trusting that He will answer that prayer

As His Spirit speaks to me


I know that heavenly Father

You've created all that is

I am but a speck of dust

With a definite life of demise

Yet You in Your great wonderment

Has a plan that's just for me

Help me to wait with patience Lord

Knowing that Your hand is upon me


Thank You Lord for the reliance of

Your Word is Who You are

It shall not return unto You void

For forever it's where You are

Though Heaven and earth may pass away

Eternal Your Word exists

My pursuit has found You as it's Home

My soul is engulfed in that bliss!


So thank You Heavenly Father

I now know of that revelation

That You've provided by way of the Cross

The perfect gifting of Salvation

So I praise You for my pursuit

It was definitely worth the walking

My prayers have come to fruition Lord

I listened while You did the talking!


Hallelujah what a Saviour!

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
