I was in the kitchen cooking the other day and as the radio shuffled through several songs, and this one struck me.
As I listened to these words I was filled with such immense gratitude that at this very moment I indeed did feel that “All Is Well” with my soul.
As someone that lived many years with my soul in turmoil and not realizing it was so fragmented, I was anything but well. I had experienced so much fracturing in my life. (You can find my Broken Girl Story for all the details in our Blog Archives)
As the song played I found myself reflecting back on how far Jesus has brought me. I thought of the shame and secrets of my past that had kept me in bondage.
I thought of the trials and losses in my life that almost shattered me. I was overcome with such emotion as I thought about my life and my story.
I felt more peace than I had ever known. I thought about where I have been and where I was today. I stood in awe thinking how beautifully God has written my story as I learned to hand over all the brokenness to Him. He is the Great Restorer!
The Bridge of the song came on and one thing I know now for sure is: Through it all our eyes have to be on God only to get us through each trial we will face.
Close your eyes and sing these words with the song: “So let go my soul and trust in Him. The waves and wind still know His name” And declare “It Is Well … With My Soul.”
Sing or play the song over and over until you start to feel His Presence fill and repair every fragmented and broken part of your soul.
