What’s Happening Wednesday: It is Well

It is well.

It is well.

With my soul.

With my soul.

It is well, it is well with my soul.

i kind of had my arse handed to me over the last few weeks.  I tend to carry stress in my neck and shoulders.

My shoulders were not broad enough to carry what January 2016 had in store.  The pain that was usually confined to that one area of my body, spread through my entire skeletal frame.  Every joint hurt.  Every muscle was tense and my mind was exhausted.

Tears would have been in order, but I was too tired to cry.  It has been a difficult month to say the least.

i found myself in a lonely place.  The people who I would normally turn to for comfort were all fighting battles of their own.  Everybody has school, work, family, and ministry to worry about.

So I prayed, but not really for  myself.  I prayed for my friends.  I prayed for my church.  I prayed for my family.  But when it came time to talk about what was going on with me, the only thing I could come up with was “Lord, help!”

And He did.  But I have to be honest.  I’m not fixed.  My head still hurts.  My back still aches.  I am not well.

But I have the kind of faith that says that this is a temporary problem, but my reactions can have eternal implications. My faith says that the aches and pains of living everyday will pale in comparison to eternal glorification.

So I trudge on.  In,all honesty I am NOT well.

But It Is Well… With my soul.  Waiting for the rest of me to catch up.
