Since my high school years, the message of the Gospel Hymn “God Will Take Care of You” by Civilla D. Martin, have spoken to my heart, especially in times such as these. I would like to share the lyrics of the first stanza and the refrain with you this morning. You may also find the complete text at Number 130 in our 1989 edition of THE UNTED METHODIST HYMNAL:
Be not dismayed what e’er betide,
God will take care of you;
Beneath his wings of love abide,
God will take care of you.
God will take care of you,
Through every day, o’er all the way;

Shannon, 1000 Windows, (Cincinnati, Ohio: Standard Publishing Company, 1997).
"The whole earth is the tomb of heroic men and their story is not graven only on stone over their clay but abides everywhere without visible symbol, woven into the stuff of other men's lives."
Speaking of heaven D.L. Moody said, “We believe it is just as much a place and just as much a city as New York is, and a good deal more; because New York will pass away, and that city will abide forever. It has foundations, whose builder and maker is God” (Classic Sermons on Heaven and Hell; Wiersbe, page 9).
Dare I say it? The twin towers of the World Trade Center stood in New York as a testimony of American wealth and power. No matter how great any city may stand today, it will one day crumble ...
True and lasting friendships cannot be founded except on the foundation of a true and abiding friendship with God.
"Love is never squandered; the least remnant, however tattered, abides to our ends."
