Lead Kindly Light



"The aging process is also a gift from God, as is death. The eventual death of your mortal body is essential to God’s great plan of happiness.12 Why? Because death will allow your spirit to return home to Him.13 From an eternal perspective, death is only premature for those who are not prepared to meet God.
With your body being such a vital part of God’s eternal plan, it is little wonder that the Apostle Paul described it as a “temple of God.”"

1 Corinthians 6: 9,20

What? know ye not that your abody is the btemple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not yourcown?
 20 For ye are abought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

Psalm 116

Gracious is the Lord, and righteous—Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His Saints.
 alove the Lord, because he hath heard my voice and my supplications.
 Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon him as long as I live.
 The sorrows of death compassed me, and the apains of bhell gat hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow.
 Then called I upon the name of the Lord; O Lord, I beseech thee, deliver my soul.
 Gracious is the Lord, and righteous; yea, our God is amerciful.
 The Lord preserveth the asimple: I was brought low, and he helped me.
 Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the Lord hath dealt bountifully with thee.
 For thou hast adelivered my bsoul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling.
 I will walk before the Lord in the aland of the living.
 10 I believed, therefore have I spoken: I was greatly afflicted:
 11 I said in my ahaste, All men are liars.
 12 What shall I arender unto the Lord for all his benefits toward me?
 13 I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of theLord.
 14 I will pay my vows unto the Lord now in the presence of all his people.
 15 Precious in the sight of the Lord is the adeath of his saints.
 16 Lord, truly I am thy aservant; I am thy servant, and the son of thine handmaid: thou hast loosed my bonds.
 17 I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will acallupon the name of the Lord.
 18 I will pay my vows unto the Lord now in the presence of all his people,
 19 In the acourts of the Lord’s house, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Praise ye the Lord.

Abide with Me, 'Tis Eventide


Abide with Me; 'Tis Eventide




 Abide with me; 'tis eventide.
The day is past and gone;
The shadows of the evening fall;
The night is coming on.
Within my heart a welcome guest,
Within my home abide.
O Savior, stay this night with me;
Behold, 'tis eventide.
O Savior, stay this night with me;
Behold, 'tis eventide.
Abide with me; 'tis eventide. 
Thy walk today with me
Has made my heart within me burn,
As I communed with thee.
Thy earnest words have filled my soul
And kept me near thy side.
Abide with me; 'tis eventide,
And lone will be the night
If I cannot commune with thee
Nor find in thee my light.
The darkness of the world, I fear,
Would in my home abide.
O Savior, stay this night with me;
Behold, 'tis eventide.
O Savior, stay this night with me;
Behold, 'tis eventide.

But they constrained him, saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent. And he went in to tarry with them.
Luke 24:29




John 15:10-12


10 If ye  keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my  love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.
 11 These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your  joy might be full.
 12 This is my commandment, That ye  love one another, as I have loved you.
