The Way of Transgressors Is Hard
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith



The way of transgressors is hard

I've seen it happen first hand

I've also experienced it myself at times

Disobedient to God's commands


But truth is stronger than steel

It stands alone from the rest

It's personified in the person of Christ

Who's passed the Master's test


It does not bend the rules

But bends the rule breaker

It's fortified by the Word of God

And attributed to our Maker


So don't take HIs Word too lightly

Don't treat it as a fable

But test yourself against its contents

And see our God is able


Why make a life of hardship

In stubbornness and pride

Rejecting what God says in HIs Word

No peace or joy inside

But humble thyself and seek Him

Turn from your willful ways

Confess your need to God above

Repent of your sin and be saved

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
