In Your lovingkindness You have led the people whom You have redeemed;
In Your strength You have guided them to Your holy habitation.

Exodus 15:13

The ratio of You(Your) to the people (them) in this verse is 6:2.  I wonder what the ratio of God to me is in my reflections on the past.  Certainly, there is redemption.  His *lovingkindness* and strength do provide leadership and guidance.  Sometimes, like the people in this verse, I don’t like the way He leads.  That’s my issue, though, not His!  This verse is a great reminder that He leads out of *lovingkindness* and strength.

*Lovingkindness is apparently not a spell checker-friendly word; it is, however, a delightful word for God’s grace to His people.*
