By Marcie Bridges

"And he said:“Naked I came from my mother’s womb, And naked shall I return there.
The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; Blessed be the name of the Lord.” Job 1:21 (NKJV)



**When peace, like a river, attendeth my way - - When everything is going well and right

When sorrows like sea billows roll; - - When life has taken its heaviest toll

Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say - -
                   No matter what is going on in my life You have taught me this one thing

It is well, it is well, with my soul! - - All is alright, With You by my side, 
                                                                                                    My soul is at peace.

It is well - - Thank You Lord!

With my soul - - With my whole being

It is well, It is well - - I rest in You, I trust in You,

With my soul! - - With my whole heart, soul and mind
                             With all I am, all I have
                              My inmost being.

Thank You LORD that no matter what has come into our lives, whether because of something we have done, or someone else has thrown us into a pit, we can rest in You and we can find peace in our inmost being. I praise You LORD that one day the clouds will part, and You will call us home and we will have no more sorrow, no more pain, no more sin. Until then LORD, may we find within us the words to say, BLESSED BE YOUR NAME IT - IS WELL WITH MY SOUL.

  1. Thank you Marcie girl. This is one of my favorite hymns. That's what it boils down to, isn't it? Our God is our constant in an ever-changing world. His love is everlasting. His faithfulness reaches to the highest mountain and scoops us up out of the lowest valley. And for that I can freely say, "It is well with my soul." Love you sweet friend.

  2. It is amazing how freeing it is to be able to say that at some point in our walk with the Lord, isn't it? Thank you for stopping by and sharing with me. Love you too :-)
