It is well with my soul.

So the last week has been full of ups and downs.

I was clinging to the ladder of life and then suddenly it was like the clouds opened up and the sun shone down on me and I felt better again.

I get an email that smacks me in the face and suddenly I feel like I am falling.

Then I read a post from a friend and I cry a lot during that one minute and forty nine seconds. I needed to hear that.

Then I google different words and a stumble upon a blog that I got lost in a long time ago. These words that she writes resonate with my soul. While she was here, throughout her trials, she chose Joy.

And then wherever I turn I keep hearing this version of one of my favorite hymns & as tears stream down my face I decide that whatever my fate is, it is well with my soul.

It Is Well with My Soul by subpop

I need to remember that even in the darkest of shadows that there is light on the other side. Sometimes I can see it and while I don’t know how long it will take before I get there, I will get there. And that is well with my soul.

  6. Hey, you're not alone. I wish I could write as openly as you do on my blog, as there is much I want to say. I think we all face struggles, maybe different, but struggles nonetheless. I feel down and depressed at times, and go up and down with my weight in an unhealthy way, and sometimes I feel alone, and you know… we just have to take it day by day, right? Hugs to you.
