Weekend Wisdom: He Leads Us

I found this wonderful poem in my morning devotional on Monday and thought it would make a perfect Weekend Wisdom post.

May you always remember that He will lead you no matter where this year takes you.

 

 

“He leads us on by paths we did not know;

Upward He leads us, though our steps be slow;

Though oft we faint and falter on the way,

Though storms and darkness oft obscure the day;

Yet when the clouds are gone,

We know He leads us on.

 

He leads us on through all the unquiet years;

Past all our dreamland hopes, and doubts and fears,

He guides our steps, through all the tangled maze

Of losses, sorrows, and o’er clouded days;

We know HIs will is done;

And still He leads us on.”
