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.”
