Encouragement: Spafford’s Hymn/It Is Well With My Soul

Hey Sweet Friends,

Here is the history of the amazing hymn: It Is Well With My Soul.

In the darkest times…”we entrust our souls to a faithful Creator.”

Be encouraged Sweet Friends, our God is with us!!

The Lord also encouraged Spafford to write this hymn after losing all his children. And on that long journey to meet his wife while crossing over the place his children passed away…he wrote this incredibly hymn of truly tremendous faith.

Jesus loves you and He will NEVER leave you or forsake you!!

You only need to trust in Him as Lord, you are His child!!

May this hymn be yours and my anthems each day of our lives…in the good and the bad!!

Be safe, be kind and know you are not alone!!

Enjoy the testimony and may you be encouraged!! And then listen or sing along to the hymn.

Let our voices rise and to praise and glorify a truly all mighty God!! One who loves you so very very much!!

Keep serving Him well Dear Ones!!

Love, hugs and prayers….k

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Hey Sweet Friends,

The following article about St. Patrick is quite amazing!! He truly is a hero of the faith!!

Hugs and prayers….k 🙂

Every year, St. Patrick’s Day seems to be synonymous with Irish symbols, pots of gold, shamrocks, and above all — the color green. But these traditions have almost completely obscured the real life and testimony of such an amazing character in Christian history.

Though shrouded in myth and legend, the true story of the man we now call “Saint Patrick” is quite fascinating. Although he is revered as the patron saint of Ireland, Patrick was actually born in what is now Scotland. At sixteen years of age, he was captured by Irish pirates and forced into slavery in a deep inland region. As a young man he had ignored all sense of faith or religion, but while in captivity he called out to God and came to depend on Him through that arduous period. It was also during this time that he was able to witness firsthand the barbaric paganism of the Irish Celts.
After spending six years in slavery, he was able to make his escape: walking over 200 miles to the coast, then convincing a reticent ship captain to let him board. After a few more setbacks, he finally arrived back in Scotland. Along the way, he led many of the ship’s crew to place their faith in Christ.

After returning home, he sought to strengthen his own faith and give his life in service to God’s kingdom. He received formal training to join the clergy, and soon became a minister. But he did not stay in his homeland very long, for he sensed a clear call of God to return back to pagan Ireland, to proclaim the Gospel in the land of his former captivity.
“With no hesitation, he returned to Ireland to preach the gospel. The hardships he had endured during his previous captivity equipped him. . . . Patrick met much opposition, but boldly faced it head-on. It became his common practice to preach first to the king of each Irish domain.

“Patrick managed to impress each king with the Gospel or was given leniency to teach it to the people. They in turn renounced their gods as demons and served the one true God instead. According to his own writings, Patrick baptized thousands of new believers, resulting in a changed country. By the end of the fifth century, Ireland had a strong pulse as a Christianized nation.”
—Kaylena Radcliff, editor for Christian History magazine

It is very difficult to comprehend the impact of Patrick’s courageous obedience to return to the land of his captors. Some scholars have even published titles such as “How the Irish Saved Civilization” to examine how far-reaching the effects of Irish Christianity have been on the rest of the world, all tracing back to the legacy of Patrick.
