All The Way My Savior Leads Me

All the way my Savior leads me;
What have I to ask beside?
Can I doubt His tender mercy,
Who through life has been my guide?
Heav’nly peace, divinest comfort,
Here by faith in Him to dwell!
For I know, whate’er befall me,
Jesus doeth all things well;
For I know, whate’er befall me,
Jesus doeth all things well.

All the way my Savior leads me,
Cheers each winding path I tread;
Gives me grace for every trial,
Feeds me with the living bread.
Though my weary steps may falter,
And my soul athirst may be,
Gushing from the rock before me,
Lo! A spring of joy I see;
Gushing from the rock before me,
Lo! A spring of joy I see.

All the way my Savior leads me
O the fullness of His love!
Perfect rest to me is promised
In my Father’s house above.
When my spirit, clothed immortal,
Wings its flight to realms of day
This my song through endless ages—
Jesus led me all the way;
This my song through endless ages—
Jesus led me all the way.

"For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes." Rev. 7:17

It is 10:14 AM Eastern Standard Time Sunday morning. A cold gray morning today. It is going to rain later this afternoon. We need the rain here in Western Michigan. Right now I feel sick to my stomach. Maybe I have stomach cancer.

I got up this morning around 5:15 AM and now I am suffering from lack of proper rest. I should go back to bed, but feel too sick to lay down someplace. Carol has left for Covenant PCA already. She goes back to work tonight so she will sleep this afternoon.

I have had a typical morning thus far. Due to not getting enough sleep last night or the last couple of days I have not done much today. I did managed though to write three pages in my paper diary and read for devotions from a book titled, 'Paul's Divine Christology" by Paul Tilling.

"And those who are Christ's have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires" Gal. 5:24

"not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord" Romans 13;11

"For I am jealous for you, godly jealously. For I have betrothed you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ" 1 Corinth. 11:2

All I can recall about last night is Carol going to bed early and me staying up late reading the book, "Politics: Observations & Arguments, 1966-2004" essays by Hendrik Hertzberg.

Well, not much else to report. I suppose I will close to feel sick to the center of my being. There is no way out.
