Lead Me

Lead me O God
Into Your Heavens
Where Satan’s evil cannot trod
Lead me into Your paths of righteousness
Lead me in the faith by Your Staff… Your Rod
For they comfort me in times of weakness
Giving me Your strength, so that I can stand tall
Against every foe and minion of Satan
Against all evil Lord… do not let me fall

For You are my stronghold
My guardian over evil
You are the words
To ever praise filled song
Lead me O God
Into Your Heavens
Lead me where You, Lord
Will right every wrong

When my journey seems steep…rocky and rough
Lead me Lord, guide me, make my faith tough
Enough to stand against evildoers
Strong enough to subdue the most evil of all
Fake news, False prophets
Heralding “untrue stories”
Trying to trip me up…trying to make me fall

I once had great desires to become a journalist
Reporting the news of the day’s times and events
But You had different plans for this reporter…this author
To teach the “Good News” of The Gospel…to lead other’s to repent

For Your forgiveness allows mercy… Your forgiveness extends grace
So that my humble, earnest petitions in prayer
O God, My Father…You will hear and embrace

So, please lead me Lord Jesus into Your Heavens
Where the voice of many angels encircle Your throne
Praising and singing…
“Worthy is the Lamb who was slain,
to receive power and wealth and wisdom
and strength and honor and glory and praise”
All the day long!

  1. Hello Marie. My son and I met you at your home this morning.
    I absolutely love this poem. It’s so powerful and speaks so eloquently to the vital role God plays in seeing us through trials and tribulations.

    Knowing you appreciate the practical value of God’s Word (2 Timothy 3:16; Isaiah 48:17), I invite you to check the ‘Bible Teachings’ section of the jw.org site. I’m sure you’ll appreciate the intro to this section on the site: “The Bible offers the best possible advice on life’s most difficult questions. Its value has been proved throughout the centuries. In this section, you’ll find out why you can trust the Bible, how you can get the most from it, and just how practical the Bible really is.—2 Timothy 3:16, 17.”

    It was so refreshing and an absolute pleasure to meet you today. Please check out the site and let me know your thoughts.

    1. Hello Sanitra,
      I apologize for the delayed response. My Dad has been in the hospital so I had to take a break from the blog. However, he is home now and doing well. I’m glad you stopped by and so appreciate your kind words. It was a pleasure to meet you and your son as well. What a joy to see the Lord at work in the heart of such a fine, handsome, young man. Keep up the good work and keep the faith!
      Abundant Blessings,
      Marie
