God's Timing Is Always Perfect

God's Timing Is Always Perfect

 

God’s timing is always perfect
That should never be a surprise
But when He begins His will to do
It brings joy tears to our eyes.

From the least expected way
His provision comes to pass
It momentarily stuns us
As in His grace we bask

That little doubting Thomas
In the corner of our mind
Has to turn it’s face in shame
And own the Master’s time.

In spite of reservations
That, “Can our God supply?”
He can, He will, He does my friend
Our God, He cannot lie!

Forgive me Lord for faltering
The human flesh is weak
You once again have proved Yourself
Ask and Knock and Seek!

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
