Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself;
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.

It is well

Jeremiah 38:20
So it shall be well unto thee, and thy shall live.

It Is Well With My Soul
 
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.

Refrain:
It is well with my soul,
it is well, it is well with my soul.

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
let this blest assurance control,
that Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
and hath shed his own blood for my soul.
(Refrain)

My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!
My sin, not in part but the whole,
is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!
(Refrain)

And, Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight,
the clouds be rolled back as a scroll;
the trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend,
even so, it is well with my soul. 

~ Lyrics Horatio Gates Spafford
Music by Philip P Bliss

A blessed Sunday to you all.
Jesus Love You

  6. One of my favorite songs. I remember many years ago see the Bill Gaither Trio in concert (when it was Bill, Gloria and Danny) and hearing Danny sing that song. I still remember the goosebumps. Thank you for sharing that.
