It is well with my Soul

I found the story below very touching, timely and inspiring, especially against the backdrop of the recent tragic happenings at Virginia Tech in the USA, where 33 souls perished. Let us remember in our prayers, the families of all who have lost loved ones through violence around the world. O that the nations might beat their swords into plowshares and spears into pruninghooks!

May we unite against all forms of wickedness and violence both at home and abroad! Parents, try as much as possible to keep any games, toys and movies that encourage immorality out of the reach of your impressionable children. Spend more 'quality time' with them. Give them your love. Do not lose your children to the triple evil of: peer pressure, drug & alcohol addiction and gun culture. Let us lobby for stiffer gun control. Let us nip the problem in the bud when and while we can. The home is the frontline against the war on terror. Leaving it to regulators, teachers and the clergy, is allowing it to grow and spread. Before you know it, it will be too late. Education begins at home!


Shabbat Shalom!

The story and hymn is quoted verbatim from:
http://www.cyberhymnal.org/htm/i/t/i/itiswell.htm

"This hymn was writ­ten af­ter two ma­jor trau­mas in Spaf­ford’s life. The first was the great Chi­ca­go Fire of Oc­to­ber 1871, which ru­ined him fi­nan­cial­ly (he had been a weal­thy bus­i­ness­man). Short­ly af­ter, while cross­ing the At­lan­tic, all four of Spaf­ford’s daugh­ters died in a col­li­sion with an­o­ther ship. Spaf­ford’s wife Anna sur­vived and sent him the now fa­mous tel­e­gram, “Saved alone.” Sev­er­al weeks lat­er, as Spaf­ford’s own ship passed near the spot where his daugh­ters died, the Ho­ly Spir­it in­spired these words. They speak to the eter­nal hope that all be­liev­ers have, no mat­ter what pain and grief be­fall them on earth."

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

Refrain

It is well, with my soul,
It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul...




The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
