Posted on

it is well with my soul lyrics hymn songThe song “It Is Well With My Soul” is a hymn penned by hymnist Horatio Spafford and composed by Philip Bliss.
Spafford 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 had 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 “It’s 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 Lord, you have taught me to say – It is well, it is well with my soul.
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 good attitude towards God makes Him move on your behalf. Just sit down and say, Today 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 me, I am thankful I have a job, I am thankful that I have Family and Friends. Above all, I am thankful that I have the Lord Jesus Christ on my side.
Be blessed and 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. It Is Well With My Soul! Touch someone’s life with this message if God is for us, who can be against us?
Don’t read if you can’t forward. God has seen you struggling with something. God says it’s over. A blessing is coming your way. If you believe in God send this message on, please don’t ignore it.
God is going to fix two (BIG) things in your favor. If you believe in God, drop everything and pass it on. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. Don’t break this. Send this to fourteen friends in 10 minutes
