I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; 
I will counsel you and watch over you. 
Psalm 32:8

As Christians, we know and believe that God has a specific plan and purpose for our lives. By faith, we seek to walk that path, often without sight. We also have the choice to rebel, forsaking God and going our own way. God doesn't lead by force. We must have a desire and willingness to be guided along the path He has set forth for us. The path of freedom, redemption, and salvation.

Romans 8:14 reminds us that those of us who allow the Spirit to lead in our lives are children of God. In fact, scripture teaches that we must come to Him as little children, humble and obedient.

It is fitting then that most probable author of this popular hymn, Dorothy A. Thrupp, was a writer and publisher of children's hymns and poems. During her lifetime she wrote thousands of hymns, most of which she penned anonymously.

Her words remind us of the tender care our Lord Jesus has for us as He guides us through life's pastures. How He guides and protects us, cleanses us and frees us from our earthly fetters.

I think Miss Dorothy would join me in praying, for all of us, that we come to Him early, and stay with Him long.

Early let us seek Thy favor,
Early let us do Thy will;
Blessed Lord and only Savior,
With Thy love our bosoms fill:
Blessèd Jesus, blessèd Jesus,
Thou hast loved us, love us still;
Blessèd Jesus, blessèd Jesus,
Thou hast loved us, love us still.
