The story behind the composer of the hymnal it is well with my soul

The story behind the composer of the hymnal it is well with my soulThe 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 has 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 “ITS 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 & 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 also 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 please 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.
