Sunday Spiritual - It Is Well with My Soul

It is well...
The song "It Is Well With My Soul" was written by a successful
Christian lawyer. He had two girls and a wife and the family planned a
summer trip to go overseas. Since he had a lot of work to do, he sent
his family and decided to follow them later. He heard the news while on
the following ship that another ship had capsized and he knew that his
family was there since they mentioned the name of the ship. On His
return home, his Law firm was burned down and the insurance refused to
pay, they said "It's An Act Of God". He had no money to pay for his
house and no work, he also lost his house. Then while sitting and
thinking what's happening to him, being a spiritual person, he wrote a
song - whatever my Lord, you have taught me to say It is well, it is
well with my soul. My dear friend, a good attitude will determine your
altitude. When you look at your life, career, job or family life, what
do you say? Do you praise God? Do you blame the devil? A good attitude
towards God makes Him move on your behalf. Just sit down and say, Today
God, it is well with my soul, I am thankful I had a peaceful sleep, I
am thankful I am alive with possibilities, I am thankful I have a roof
over me, I am thankful I have a job, 
I am thankful that I have Family
and Friends. 
Above all, I am thankful that 
I have the Lord Jesus Christ
on my side. Be blessed and don't be envious or shocked when others are
prospering because you don't know what they have been through to get
there (test, trials and tribulation) so thank God for what you have.
"Little is much when God is in it. 
It Is Well With My Soul! 
Touch someone's life 
with this message 
if God is for us, 
who can be against us? 
Don't read if you can't forward. 
God has seen you struggling with
something. God says it's over. 
A blessing is coming your way.
