This phrase.
Three simple words; yet the depth of meaning they convey.
Do you find yourself using it very often?
I certainly do.
And I put it to you —- “It is well”

Two songs come to mind
1. When peace like a river attendeth my way
2. Through the love of God our Saviour

What does this phrase mean and why at all do people use it??

I’m putting together what I read online; you can put what you think in the comment section.

It means that no matter what tragic or unexpected thing may happen in my life is in God’s hands and I trust Him.

Just look at the story behind the first song.
Horatio Spafford lost so much
– a fortune in the great Chicago fire of 1871.
– his beloved four-year-old son died of scarlet fever
– his four daughters lost their lives in a ship crossing the Atlantic Ocean

Can you imagine such a loss??
And yet, this man wrote the words of the beautiful hymn we sing.

I don’t know what you’re going through.
I certainly know what I am going through.

All I can say to you is
“It is well.”

With Christ in the vessel,..we shall smiiiiile πŸ˜ƒ at the storm!

A few Bible verses below:

1 Kings 5:4 NLT
But now the LORD my God has given me peace on every side; I have no enemies, and all is well.

Psalm 112:5 ESV
It is well with the man who deals generously and lends;
who conducts his affairs with justice.

So my brother,.. my sister.


Because God dey,..we too we dey paaaaaa!!

God bless you!
