Hymn & Scripture Challenge #15 / He Leadeth Me!

I have had this scripture challenge done for a couple of days, but just have not felt like posting.   Every felt like that?  Well I decided to get it done tonight so here it is.
I do love this song and the song is all about our Lord leading us by the hand.  Look at these words.
He leadeth me, O blessed thought!
O words with heav’nly comfort fraught!
Whate’er I do, where’er I be
Still ’tis God’s hand that leadeth me.

He leadeth me, He leadeth me,
By His own hand He leadeth me;
His faithful foll’wer I would be,
For by His hand He leadeth me.
Sometimes ’mid scenes of deepest gloom,
Sometimes where Eden’s bowers bloom,
By waters still, o’er troubled sea,
Still ’tis His hand that leadeth me.
Lord, I would place my hand in Thine,
Nor ever murmur nor repine;
Content, whatever lot I see,
Since ’tis my God that leadeth me.
And when my task on earth is done,
When by Thy grace the vict’ry’s won,
E’en death’s cold wave I will not flee,
Since God through Jordan leadeth me.
And, this is exactly how I feel!  Without God leading me I am not certain I would be here today to make this post.  Because I truly believe that I am where I am today because I have placed my hand in God's hand and I am allowing Him to lead me.  Do I make mistakes and sometimes veer the wrong way, yes.  But I am quick to realize that I cannot continue on without holding on to God's hand and the peace that comes from allowing Him to lead me.  With my hand in His I am content wherever I may go.  You see I realize that I have to put my trust in God to lead me in the direction I am to go.  I have tried to do it without Him and boy have I failed big time.  I repeat, I cannot do it on my own, I need God!  Peace, what Peace in holding on to God's hand with all my might.  Try it, you will like it!
Check out Candi Pearson singing this wonderful Hymn!
Now on to my page!
The verse I chose was what seemed to stick in my mind after I read Patter's post on this Hymn.  So when I got down to choosing a verse, this is the one I went with.  If we allow our Lord to lead us and instruct us in the way we should go, His eyes will always be on us.  And, that is what I want is for Him to always be watching over me.
Now please don't forget to check out Patter's post!  I know you will not be let down, but you will be lifted up!  May God lead you today and always!  God Bless!!!
