It is well, it is well with my soul.

“There is no attribute more comforting to His children than that of God’s Sovereignty. Under the most adverse circumstances, in the most severe trials, they believe that Sovereignty has ordained their afflictions, that Sovereignty overrules them . . . We proclaim an enthroned God, & His right to do as He will with His own.” (C.H. Spurgeon)

“That God is good is taught or implied on every page of the Bible & must be received as an article of faith as impregnable as the throne of God.” (A.W. Tozer)

“‘He knows the way He taketh’ . . . [He] knows what He is doing, & ‘doeth all things well,’ even if for the moment He hides His hand. We can trust Him & rejoice in Him, even when we cannot discern His path.” (J.I. Packer)

“He is ever the same. His purpose is fixed, His will is stable, His word is sure. Here then is a rock on which we may fix our feet, while the might torrent is sweeping away everything around us.” (A.W. Pink)

    Considering how difficult it is to sing when times are tough, its also tremendously comforting…

    I don’t think I’ll ever forget choking my way through “It is Well with My Soul” a few months back. As I sang, each verse seemed to be a mountain to climb. I couldn’t really go on, but I didn’t want to stop either.

    It must have sounded like a trainwreck…but it was worship at its finest, I suppose.
