It Is Well With My Soul

To say this week has been rough would be an understatement.  There was a school shooting in my area, and being a teacher this hit way too close to home.  Being a mom this made my heart ache. I can’t even imagine, just thinking about it makes me cry.

My friend, who recently miscarried, found out her husband has cancer and my husband’s grandma was diagnosed with Leukemia.

To say this week has been rough, is an understatement.

It was downright awful.

My eyes welled with tears as I drove along the other day and these words played over the radio, “Through it all, through it all, my eyes are on you.” and then later, “It is well with my soul.”

God’s timing always amazes me. That was exactly what I needed to hear. I needed to be reminded that God is still good, no matter my circumstances.

Through it all, my eyes are on Him.

My circumstances will change, but God never will. Although this week was not what I was prepared for, I know that I can find rest in the fact that God is with me through it all.

“You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book.” Psalm 56:8 (NLT)

Are you facing some devastating news this week? I would encourage you to seek the only one who can understand your hurt and give you peace that passes all understanding.

God Bless.

He’s not surprised or shocked about what you are dealing with today, tomorrow, or next week. Each person has his own story. I pray God will get the final glory in each situation.
