The Unquiet Years
He leads us on by paths we did not know;
Upward He leads us, though our steps be slow,
Though oft we faint and falter on the way,
Though storms and darkness oft obscure the day;
Yet when the clouds are gone,
We know He leads us on.
He leads us on through all the unquiet years;
Past all our dreamland hopes, and doubts and fears,
He guides our steps, through all the tangled maze
Of losses, sorrows, and o’er clouded days;
We know His will is done;
And still He leads us on. ~ Nikolaus Ludwig Zinzendorf.
I wait quietly before God for my victory comes from Him. (Psalm 62:1)
Refuse to equate God's deafening silence or our persistent storms for His disinterest. He has never left us unattended - still He leads us on.
