Opened Doors

Qavah is going to Cincinnati Childrens' Hospital. I got a call right during dinnertime tonight expecting it to be a call from someone asking for a donation. But it was a call from the hospital telling me that Qavah's pediatrician in Roanoke had called Medicaid today and laid out her case before them. They agreed to the requests for diagnostic testing and our appointment has already been made for mid-December.

When we arrived at Bible Study tonight our friend said, "we told the Lord this morning that it was discouraging to have so many doors slammed shut for Qavah, so we prayed that He would open doors today." We know that their prayers along with others have been heard and that this is a gift from Him. We are in awe of His great love. Songs I learned in my chilldhood about His faithfulness have been running through my mind tonight. This hymn was written by Fanny Crosby. She lost her eyesight when she was six weeks old. Knowing she was blind, the lyrics take on a special meaning as she wrote about trusting her Guide.

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.
