An unexpected crisis is a part of living. Navigating through it all is challenging for every. single. person.
The thing is . . those who live without their soul anchored to God . . . experience and manage it all differently than those who do.
The aloneness of the soul is terrifying.
The aloneness is uncovered in crisis. There’s a longing to find strength and a solid place to stand on when an unexpected crisis comes our way. Crisis cuts deep, leaving us breathless, exhausted, and questioning.
When our life is anchored to God we are given unusual peace and certainty that we are not alone. John recorded Jesus’ declaration of his soul-deep presence and peace in chapter 14 of his book in the New Testament.
Jesus’ powerful words speak to the soul . . . I will not leave you . . . I will give you peace.
These words have continued to speak to the soul generation after generation.
When all is said and done: Those who have anchored their life to God and walked the roads of unexpected crisis can say with certainty: “It Is Well With My Soul.”
It is well (it is well),
with my soul (with my soul),
It is well, it is well with my soul.
(~ Horatio Spafford)
