It is well

It is well with my soul..

A favourite hymn sung by a favourite choir.

When I think of my faith and the rock that faith is built upon I wonder why there are times that these words escape me.

  • when I’m feeling lonely
  • when my body aches
  • when friends struggle
  • when violence over-comes the world
  • when wisdom seems to be at the bottom of the list for so many leaders

In times like this is could sing “blessed hope” “it is well”.

What is your soul feeling today?  What kind words will you speak to remind you of who you are?

“Even so, it is well with my soul”.

Peace and blessed be.

Wondering Wednesday: Living the Gospel

How do we live out the Good News, the Gospel?

stuck in the snow

How do we move forward when all around is feels like sinking sand or deep, cold snow?

Our Gospel Message from Mark 2 shares a story of hope in over-coming the impossible.  Moving when we’re stuck and feeling out of control is not easy, simple, and sometimes not possible.

Our faith can grow from what seems impossible.  Hope turns to deep rooted faith when we dare to take a step.

What step will you take today?
