Where He Leads Me

One of my favorite songs is the hauntingly beautiful Where He Leads Me, by Twila Paris.  The song speaks about discerning God’s still, quiet voice among all the noise of the world and following our Great Shepherd wherever He leads us.  

Lyrics to Where He Leads Me

by Twila Paris

There's a great, broad road, through the meadow,
And many travel there,
But I have a gentle Shepherd,
I would follow anywhere,
Up a narrow path, Through the mountains,
To the valley far below,
To be ever in His presence,
Where He leads me I will go.


And there are many wondrous voices,
Day and night they fill the air,
But there is one so small and quiet,
I would know it anywhere,
In the city or in the wilderness,
There's a ringing crystal clear,
And to be ever close beside Him,
When He calls me I will hear.
Where He leads me, I will follow,
When He calls me I will hear.

There is a great, broad road to nowhere,
And so many travel there,
But I have a gentle Shepherd,
I would follow anywhere,
Though the journey take me far away,
From the place I call my home,
To be ever in His presence,
Where He leads me I will go.

 

Jesus told his disciples, “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow me.”  (John 10:27).  Daily I pray that I will hear the Shepherd’s voice leading and guiding me along the path He has laid out for me.  Where He leads me is where I want to go and where I will go.  He will not lead me astray, and His plans for me are wonderful. 

The Great Shepherd has a wonderful plan for you, too.  If you are feeling lost, turn to Him and let Him take control of your life.  If you are confused by all the voices of the world trying to lead you astray, take time each morning to spend time reading God’s word and praying so that you will be able to discern His voice from others.
