It Is Well…

This song has been playing in my thoughts this morning. The words speak to the peace and assurance that believers have in Christ. Even when our world is spinning out of control…our Heavenly Father is in control, and He loves us with an undying love.

If you are going through deep despair, please read the words written by a man who knew deep despair. If it is not well with your soul, confess that to God and ask Him to bless you with the grace you need to be at peace and to trust Him.

When peace like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to know
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

It is well, (it is well),
With my soul, (with my soul)
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul.

My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!

For me, be it Christ, be it Christ hence to live:
If Jordan above me shall roll,
No pang shall be mine, for in death as in life,
Thou wilt whisper Thy peace to my soul.

But Lord, ’tis for Thee, for Thy coming we wait,
The sky, not the grave, is our goal;
Oh, trump of the angel! Oh, voice of the Lord!
Blessed hope, blessed rest of my soul.

And Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight,
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll;
The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend,
A song in the night, oh my soul!  ~  “It Is Well With My Soul”, Horatio Spafford, (October 20, 1828, – October 16, 1888)

I’m praying that whoever reads this and needs God’s help and hope will have it quickly. God bless you and keep you ❤
