It is Well With My Soul is a song that means so much to me. We sang this beautiful hymn at my son’s funeral almost five years ago. He was a stillborn, 37 weeks along. Since then, I had another stillborn at five months, which is the picture you see above with my husband and Levi in his tiny little box. Two more miscarriages followed.
Through it all, I have learned a lesson that was not easy to learn.
“When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
when sorrows like sea billows roll;
whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say,
It is well, it is well with my soul.”
I can say, with strength but not my own, that it truly is well with my soul. Through the pain and suffering of losing children, He has taught me to trust Him completely, even when it does not make sense.
When we sing this song at church, it gets me almost every time. Through choking back tears and squeaking my way through the song, I know in my heart that He has given me peace. His name is Jesus. Oh, how I love Him!
Trials will come. Some of you are going through difficult times right now. Is it well with your soul? It can be.
