It Is Well With My Soul - Audrey Assad

4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!  5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:4-7


Hi!

Sometimes life can be so confusing and throw so many unfair and outrageous things at us.

This is nothing new to human-kind—as we can read King David's bewildering at times—questions about his life, the enemies surrounding him—and his sometimes baffling circumstances some 2,000 years ago.

Or we can turn to the story of Job—written even earlier—and see his suffering as he lost his worldly possessions and eventually all of his children—and read as he pleads his case with his "friends" and then even with God.

If you've lived any length of time on this earth—there is no doubt you can relate to their suffering.

---------------------

In the late 1800's, Chicago businessman Horatio G. Spafford found himself contemplating the loss of his only son to pneumonia and then later that year his business was nearly destroyed in the Chicago fire.

In 1873 his wife then boarded a ship to Europe with their four daughters—which collided with another vessel and sank leaving only Mrs Spafford as a survivor.

As Mr. Spafford traveled by boat to join his wife in America, he wrote the BEAUTIFUL song, "It Is Well With My Soul."

Recently I found a lovely version of this song by Audrey Assad and decided to share it here.

May it Bless and lift you—and may God's Grace and Love be poured out upon your life!

Jesus is LORD!

Seek Him!

9 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.

  1. Hi Jephyr,
    beautiful post, the verses from Philippians say it all as far as living our lives in the Lord. I shall come back and listen to the song later - going to have my breakfast.
    God bless you.
