The One Who Is Leading

The One Who is Leading

Faith never knows where it's being led,
but it loves and knows the One who is leading...
a life not of reason and intellect
but of walking not fainting instead!

In ordinary days and ways
often tested and tried,
yet knowing Who makes us go...
as we shoulder our cross and obey.

Character is slowly attained,
seeking the Lord not success...
a life of separation from the world
where wisdom and knowledge are gained.

Hebrews 11:8 "Abraham went out, not knowing whither he went."

Very good rendering of the meaning of Hebrews 11:8
As someone said recently, "You gotta have grit!" + faith.

About the Poet
Christian since 1973, widowed in 2007, but by the divine appt. of God, I married a wonderful, godly widower in Oct. 2010. Three grown, married sons and eight grandchildren. My first love is Jesus who inspires my pen, for apart from Him I can do nothing! I desire to honor the Lord and edify readers thru poetry He inspires.
