Lord May We Live in Brokeness

LORD MAY WE LIVE IN BROKENESS
 
Lord may we live in brokeness and fragile minded be
A spirit sensitive to sin, but living victoriously
A heart that's supersensitive to the needs of others
As well as, rejoicing in, true fellowship with brothers.
 
Prisoners to the need to pray, our mind set fast in this
It makes communion with our God, one of continual bliss
Birth the song that needs to sing, its praises to its Master
Share the Word that hails the King, and brings His Kingdom faster
 
Light the fire in our souls, to give us new beginnings
That sends us out to share the Word, with men we should be winning
How warm the heart with kindled fire, the Spirit as our fuel
The lost we seek, they shall be found, who does this is no fool

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
