There is an old hymn which says “It is well with my soul”. In the past days, I’ve spent some time reflecting on this phrase. Things don’t always go the way we plan, sometimes they don’t go at all. However, if we believe what the word says in Jeremiah 29:11, then we must also believe that good will come, we must believe in God’s plan.
When past failures invade the current status; it is well with my soul
When people judge; it is well with my soul
When sadness creeps in; it is well with my soul
When it rains: it is well with my soul
When I’m broken; it is well with my soul
When I succeed, when I’m accepted, when joy takes over, when days are bright, when I’m made new; it is well with my soul because God is in control!
I know that you can do anything, and no one can stop you. (Job 42:2 NLT)
