It Is Well With My Soul

December 27, 2016

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

Many are still celebrating Christmas and looking for ward to New Years Activities, but some people are hurting. Today there is a funeral for a father of 3 who was killed in an accident 2 days befor Christmas. Another friend’s brother died from cancer last week. As Christians we can say even in the midst of tragedy, it is well with my soul. If you are hurting our prayer for you is to lean on Jesus who can give you the peace and comfort you need through this difficult time.

This song was written by Horatio G. Spafford in 1873 when he was over the spot where his 4 daughters were drowned when the ship they were traveling on sank. He was on his way to comfort his grieving wife when the “peace that passes understanding” prompted him to write this beautiful hymn. 

Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
