When next you feel like quitting, Remember this – “It is well with my soul”. I didn’t fully realise the impact of this song until I heard the story behind it.
A very wealthy Chicago lawyer had a thriving business, a Wife, 4 daughters and a son. He was a devout Christian, and at the very height of his success he lost his only son tragically. Soon after a great fire destroyed ALL of his business factories too. With his family going thru all of this, he decided to send his wife and 4 daughters on a cruise to Europe to get some time away as he stayed back to attend to some business as well as a crusade for God. He received a letter 3 days after they left, informing him of some more bad news!!! Tragedy struck again. This time, there was a storm at sea and his 4 daughters drowned in that storm. His wife survived and on his way to join her he penned these famous words that has brought comfort to many today. What are you going thru again??? How bad do you think life is to you??? “Whatever my lot, you have taught me to say, it is well, it is well with my soul”.#bounceback #thedevilisaliar #thedevilhatesacomebackstory #defeatyourfears
Just like Job, God restored it all, he was wealthier than he ever was before, I mean this song is testament to that fact and he was blessed with 3 more children too.”
