House Blend #3

Today, I want to share a tragic but wonderful story with you. I first heard this story when I was 15 or 16 years old and I have never forgotten it. It has challenged me  for years but it challenges me even more-so as a mom.

How strong is my faith? At which point and at what loss would I walk away from that faith? If I could ever walk away from it, did I ever truly believe?

Watch this short video to read the story that has stuck with me for years.

Here are the lyrics to the hymn “It Is Well With My Soul” by Horatio G. Spafford.

  1. 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, it is well, with my soul.
  2. 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.
  3. My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!
    My sin, not in part but the whole,
    Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
    Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!
  4. For me, be it Christ, be it Christ hence to live:
    If Jordan above me shall roll,
    No pang shall be mine, for in death as in life
    Thou wilt whisper Thy peace to my soul.
  5. But, Lord, ’tis for Thee, for Thy coming we wait,
    The sky, not the grave, is our goal;
    Oh, trump of the angel! Oh, voice of the Lord!
    Blessed hope, blessed rest of my soul!
  6. And Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight,
    The clouds be rolled back as a scroll;
    The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend,
    Even so, it is well with my soul.

I pray you’re encouraged by Horatio’s story and the song that came from that story.
