This is really a rough time for me. A transitional time. I'm lost in the sauce without a ladle....that's it.
It is Well with my Soul. I keep listening to Chris Rice's version of this hymn. I have to or I am gonna lose it.
Ahem, yeah I know, like I haven't lost it plenty of times. Of course I have. I've been through some serious storms and felt like I was stretched to my breaking point..
My job is stressing me out. My relationships are stressing me out. My life is stressing me out.
It is well with my soul. My new mantra. Have to keep listening to this song. Knowing that God is looking out for me. He knows what I am going through. He knows my sin. He knows my goodness.
He gives me Grace.
I am not the type of person that keeps themselves busy just to pretend things are fine. I can't.
I dwell in self pity. I over-think everything. I let my emotions drain me.
Then there's that moment when I first awake in the morning and for a split second, I forgot about the pit I have in my stomach...then I remember. Oh jeez, that's the worst.
Even so, it is well with my soul.
I don't have a choice. Choose God or lose it.
I choose Him and if I lose it, well.......... it will still be well with my soul.
