Light In The Darkness

"Unto the godly there ariseth up light in the darkness." Lyra Apostolica.
Here my empty desk sits, waiting to be filled up with tools of my trade, waiting as I prepare for a special journey.
Light In The Darkness.
Author Unknown, 1848

Lead, Kindly Light, amid the encircling gloom,
Lead Thou me on!
The night is dark, and I am far from home --
Lead Thou me on!
Keep Thou my feet; I do not ask to see
The distant scene, - one step enough for me.

I was not ever thus, nor prayed that Thou
Shouldst lead me on.
I loved to choose and see my path; but now,
Lead Thou me on!
I loved the garish day, and spite of fears,
Pride ruled my will: remember not past years.

So long Thy power hath blest me, sure it still
Will lead me on,
O'er moor and fen, o'er crag and torrent, till
The night is gone;
And with the morn those Angel faces smile

Journey through the scriptures with me...

"Come, follow me," Jesus said, "and I will send you out to fish for people." Matthew 4:19 (NIV)
   I will be receiving a King James Note Taker's Bible this Christmas in order to journal through the Bible for the year 2018. If you would like to take this journey with me, gather together your supplies and turn your hearts towards the Father of Heaven and Earth.

"Come Follow Me" hymn

       "Others might write a Life of Christ without seeing the Holy Land, but I could not. So in October, 1889, I embarked for that sacred country, accompanied by my wife, daughter and my friends Mr. and Mrs. Louis Klopsch, determined to see with my own eyes, and press with my own feet many of the memorable places connected with the life of the patriarchs and the ministrations of our Lord." Rev. Thomas De Witt Talmage
