All The Way My Savior Leads Me

The Gilliam Guys, July 2004In our devotions recently we had the privilege of reading the story behind this beautiful hymn by Fanny Crosby. Colossians 1:9 says ...that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding. Fanny shares about a time when she didn’t have enough money to pay her rent. Just as she had finished praying about the situation a stranger appeared at the door and pressed a ten-dollar bill in her hand before disappearing. It was the very amount needed. If Fanny were alive today she would continue to tell of her Savior’s leadership.

As this issue of the monthly newsletter comes out we also are reminded of our Savior’s leading. August 15th is an important date for us. On this date 34 years ago we were married in Portsmouth, Virginia. We can also testify of the Lord’s leading for these past years. Never has He failed us.

The Gilliam GrandGirlsIn July 1968 the Lord saved Tom. Then in August of 1970 Beth was saved. We found ourselves at Bob Jones University in the fall of 1971. At this same time, the Lord called Tom to preach. The years that followed produced pastoring, three wonderful sons, three beautiful daughter-in-laws, three precious granddaughters, (two grandsons on the way), and 13 years in Evangelism. Oh, the stories we could tell of God’s leadership and provision during these years. 

Proverbs 3:5-6 has always been our life verse. There were times when we would lean on our own understanding and would have to suffer the consequences. But we are so thankful for the years of ‘trusting in the Lord’ and know for sure that He had directed our steps. 

We continue to praise the Lord for those that God has led across our path. We have met some choice servants as we travel from church to church. We can sing with the songwriter “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 thro’ life has been my guide?
Heav’n-ly peace, divinest comfort,  Here by faith in Him to dwell!
For I know, what-e’er befall me, Jesus doeth all things well;
For I know, what-e’er befall me, Jesus doeth all things well!

Thank you so much for your continued prayer and support of this ministry.

Until next month,

Evangelist Tom Gilliam

Special Thanks
A very special thanks to Pastor Dave Dixon and Welcome Road Baptist Church in Newnan, Georgia, for their gracious and sacrificial giving allowing us to recently purchase a new laptop computer. This has been a great need for the ministry for some time, and has recently become even greater now that we have a website that we update weekly. We thank the Lord for this wonderful blessing and for the vessels at Welcome Road Baptist that allowed themselves to be so used of the Lord to give toward this need. We are truly grateful!
