The Right Path

As I journey through the land, singing as I go,Pointing souls to Calvary—to the crimson flow,Many arrows pierce my soul from without, within;But my Lord leads me on, through Him I must win.

Refrain:Oh, I want to see Him, look upon His face,There to sing forever of His saving grace;On the streets of glory let me lift my voice,Cares all past, home at last, ever to rejoice.

When in service for my Lord dark may be the night,But I’ll cling more close to Him, He will give me light;Satan’s snares may vex my soul, turn my thoughts aside;But my Lord goes ahead, leads whate’er betide.

When in valleys low I look toward the mountain height,And behold my Savior there, leading in the fight,With a tender hand outstretched toward the valley low,Guiding me, I can see, as I onward go.

When before me billows rise form the mighty deep,Then my Lord directs my bark; He doth safely keep,And He leads me gently on through this world below;He’s a real Friend to me, oh, I love Him so.

After I had read my blogs from all the other Christian women that I follow the Lord gave me this song. I have learned that when the Lord gives you something you just give him all the Praise and Glory. As I began singing the song and then I started to read the words and I realized this was for me. This week has been a very difficult one for me it seems like the enemy has just been trying to attack me in all directions. I enjoy reading the post of you dear friends cause there is always something said that just uplifts me.

This evening I was reading about the family that was killed because the parents felt like there was no hope for them since they had lost their jobs. We had a young lady here in Kansas that took the life of her 18 month old baby and herself. I know that times are hard but if these people would just take a moment and just cry out to God he will fix it. I have been praying to God because these incidents when adults are taken their lives and their babies lives too it has become to much for me to grasp. I know that before it is over it is going to get harder but people just have to get to know our Heavenly Father. He says that he will not put no more on us than we can bear.

I have been out of a job since September, yes I get unemployment and no it is nothing like getting my salary that I had come accustomed too. But I have Faith like a mustard seed that even though one door has been closed he will open another. I still have my usual monthly household bills. But when I wake up every morning I don't have no doubt cause I know that the Lord is going to provide for me and I know that the Lord is going to take care of me and I know the Lord is going to guide me all the way.

We must continue to pray and keep our post coming because we don't know it but we might be saving someone from destroying their life and the life of their family.

  1. Amen my dear Sistah!!!
    Whe I heard the news about that precious family, I literally could feel such an aching in my body, I couldn;t explain it, all I do know is that after the ache, the tears started to flow and I just cried out to the Lord with such sadness within in. The fear, desperation, sense of hopelessness, whatever he was going through had to be so powerful to make a decision such as he did. I beleive that Lord cries even much more that I could myself over situations like these. In times like these I can only say..only God knows why.

    We too are going through hardships as a family, but where would we be without the Lord. I continue to stand upon his precious promises, I have too or else I would have given up a long long time ago.

    I know he will make away, even with your situation my dear friend, you have blessed me with your words of encouragement and hope through this post and song. And I know that this is what it's all about, lifting each other up and reflecting God's hope to all people.
