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!!
Tony Evans has been a favorite pastor of mine for many many years. Bless his heart and the hearts of his family. They have genuinely been through such a difficult period. He is so encouraging in sharing what he has been through and most importantly what God has taught him.
In times as this, we are blessed to find encouragement and comfort as we all go through this journey.
This is a video of Dr. Tony Evans’ sermon on Feb. 5, 2020 that is on his YouTube. Please click below if you would like to hear more of his preaching/teaching of the things of God.
Be encouraged Dear Friends…God is our “strength in our struggles”. And thank you Dr. Evans for this wonderful message and all your service to Jesus!!
And keep serving Him well Sweet Friends…He loves you so very very much!!
I LOVE my new Faith Planner!!! I really LOVE the horizontal The Happy Planner!! It took me a while to find a good fit and a good plan to record my walk with the Lord.
I love the first part which is the SOAP style planner. I use this for my daily devotional. I record my Scripture and thoughts with the Observation, Application in the daily and Prayer/Praise in the left column. This is a great opportunity to record my thoughts on the daily devotional as well as the daily bible verse!!
The middle section is all my various papers for Sermon notes, Bible study notes, Prayer list and blank paper.
The last section is the horizontal planner pages that I use daily in my daily writing of my prayer/praise to the Lord.
It is a great binder and as I have said many times with The Happy Planner, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the ease of putting paper in and out of the ring system. This is my favorite Faith binder/planner of all time!! PTL!!! 🙂
Hugs and prayers,

Complete Household Renovations for the Fall of 2015
This fall my family will be doing some major renovations to our home. We will be converting a garage and moving my studio into another part of the house. I am so excited to finally have a plan that will help our home function and look much better!!
My first steps are getting all planned and organized. I have always used planners and loved the efficiency they allow me to organize my thoughts/plans. I have also love the creative side of decorating and for many years creating and making my own planner pages.
This year with all that has been happening I have enjoyed the quick ease of the a lovely planner by Discovery House (Our Daily Bread). It has been a simple nice size planner I have used as my main personal planner. I have also LOVED a lovely Limelife Planner for my “work” planner. This planner contains all my Josephine’s Designs plans/orders and also my homeschooling planning. I have also loved all the midori travelers, Mom’s Agenda, etc. for journaling and prayer journals.
I have recently compiled a new system for my portable planners. I will share this new system at the end of the series of articles. This will also give me more time to develop it more fully. 🙂
This is the introductory post of what is to come. I will be sharing a planner each week and then in the end share my new portable system!! 🙂 After that I will gladly share how all the planning will…Lord willing, manifest itself in the renovations of our home. 🙂
I am excited to share all that I have learned in my journey and hopefully these will encourage you in yours!! 🙂
