Lead Kindly Light

I woke early this morning.  My heart was heavy with loneliness and sorrow.  As a pondered and prayed, the lyrics of a hymn came into my mind.
Keep Thou my feet; I do not ask to see
The distant scene; one step enough for me.
-Lead Kindly Light

This hymn is especially profound for me, because it talks about the long night of sorrow.  It illustrates just how difficult the journey is sometimes, but it shares the hope of tomorrow.  When the daybreaks and the suns rays warm the earth, and hope is replenished again.  How in the mean time, there is our loving savior leading us by the hand.

The phrase above is a really difficult one for me.  I want to know desperately what is looming in the distance.  I want to be prepared and ready for whatever may be in front of me.  I may have seen one too many war dramas, or who-done-it's. 

I have to remember that I don't know the way.  Only my Father in Heaven knows where I need to go, and whom I need to meet on the way.  Keep thou my step enough for me.
