It IS Well With My Soul

I am soooo thankful for the Lord's goodness and mercy and love and joy and....I literally could go on and on. The bible says He is the great I, that means He is anything and everything we need. WHEW!!! Am I glad I don't have to be anything and everything anybody needs, I would fail them miserably...but HE NEVER fails.
Ok...why am I rambling? Well, our Ladies Retreat is coming up fast....I am pretty much the head of this particular retreat, which is really weird for me, but I got God on my side, so no worries.....well that is not completely see, I have been battling depression like you would not believe. Can you guess the theme of our retreat? JOY!!! I really wondered if I was on the brink of insanity, I have been that depressed. Not motivated to do anything, or study anything...just be a blob.
Well, God was having none of that....He let me waller in my self pity for a while, then He rescued me. I love Him so much for my rescue....and now, in all this studying, in all this worship, in all this love from God...I can truly say...and mean with all my heart....IT IS WELL WITH MY SOUL!! I will set my eyes on God....for HE is where my help comes from!!!
Have a great night, I know I will!!

Thanks for your testimony. Your blog caught my eye today because of the phrase "It Is Well with My Soul." I assume you had the hymn by Horatio Spafford in mind. If so, you can find out more about him and how the song came to be written on my daily blog, Wordwise Hymns for today. God bless.
