Hymns (7)

Bible Reading: Psalm 31:1-24
Friday, May 22, 2015

Hymns (7)Horatio Spafford lived from 1828 to 1888. His only son died during the great fire in Chicago in 1871. Then Horatio sent his wife and daughters to France on a ship. During the voyage, the ship collided with another ship and sank. Horatio’s daughters died, but his wife survived.

Horatio got on another ship and sailed to be with his wife. While sailing, he wrote the words of the hymn, “It is Well with My Soul.” These words have comforted many people who were facing troubles. “When peace like a river attendeth my way, when sorrows like sea billows roll. Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say, ‘It is well. It is well with my soul.’”

The writer of Psalm 31 faced troubles, too. And he depended on God to take care of him. We all have troubles in our lives. These troubles may be financial problems, sickness or the death of a loved one. During these times, we need to trust God and let Him take care of us. — BH

“Lord, I trust in you. You are my God. My life is in your hands.” Psalm 31:14-15a

PRAYER: Dear God, no matter what happens to me today, I want to trust You. Thank You! In Jesus’ name. Amen.
