It is well with my soul

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

Though satan should buffet,
though trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ hath regardeth my helpless estate,
And shed His own Blood for my soul.

The song "IT IS WELL WITH MY SOUL" was written by a successful Christian lawyer.
He had two girls and a wife, and the family planned a summer trip to go
overseas. Since he had a lot of work to do, he sent his family and
decided to follow them later. He heard the news while on the following
ship that another ship has capsized and he knew that his family was there
since they mentioned the name of the ship. On His return home, his Law
firm was burned down and the insurance refused to pay, they said "ITS AN
ACT OF GOD". He had no money to pay for his house and no work, he also
Lost his house.

Then while sitting and thinking what's happening to him, being a spiritual person,
he wrote a song - whatever my Lot , you have taught me to say -

My dear friend, a good attitude will determine your altitude.
When you look at your life, career, job or family life, what do you say?
Do you praise God?
Do you blame the devil?
A heart towards God makes Him move on your behalf.

Just sit down & say, Today Father God , it is well with my soul.
I am thankful I had a peaceful sleep ,
I am thankful I am alive with possibilities ,
I am thankful I have a roof over my head,
I am thankful I have a job ,
I am so thankful that I have Family and Friends.
Above All, I am thankful that I have JESUS on my side.

Be blessed. And please don’t be envious or shocked when others are prospering,
because you don’t know what they have been through to get there (test, trials and tribulation) so thank God for what you have.

"Little is much when God is in it”
