GOD LEADS US ALONG
“All the Way My Savior Leads Me” by Fanny Crosby is one of my favorite hymns. All through my life I have seen God’s hand as He has led me through great trials and wonderful joys.
I was saved when I was only five years old. Even though I don’t remember the actual prayer, I can see how He has since worked in my life through prayer and His Word. I did not grow up in the happiest of homes, but I know through the painful experiences God was leading, sustaining, helping, and strengthening me for the paths He had in store.
One of the blessing of His leading was providing for me a Christian education. I was raised by a single mother, so my grandparents paid for me to go to a Christian school in Colorado. After my kindergarten year, I asked if I could go there all the way through graduation. I know it was a financial hardship at times for them, but by God’s grace, I did graduate from that school. God was even gracious to use my grandparents and others to help pay my way through Christian college.
I never could have imagined that one day I myself would be a Christian school teacher here in Michigan – but there is no place I’d rather be. As Fanny Crosby wrote “for I know whate’re befall me, Jesus doeth all things well.”Mrs. Deanna Lewis Second Grade Teacher
