It Is Well

My soul can be at peace when everything in the world around me is falling apart.

Our scars are a sign of grace in our lives 
And Father how you brought us through 
When deep were the wounds and dark was the night 
The promise of your love You proved 
Now every battle still to come 
Let this be our song 

It is well, it is well With my soul, with my soul It is well, it is well With my soul 

Weeping may come, remain for a night 
But joy will paint the morning sky 
You’re there in the fast, you’re there in the feast 
Your faithfulness will always shine 
Now every battle still to come 
Let this be our song 

You lead us through battles 
You lead us to blessing 
And you make us fruitful 
In the land of our suffering 
God It is well, it is well with my soul

Real Peace

John 14:27  "I am leaving you with a gift--peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don't be troubled or afraid. 
One of the greatest gifts that we need is peace. The world is looking all over and they think that they have the answers but their answers don't work for every situation in life. They can't give you real peace when everything is falling apart.

Jesus tells us "I am," He is the bread and the living water, he is the light for our path and the only way to the Father. He is everything that we need for this life and for our forever life. That's why we have peace in the midst of the storm.

Scripture on suffering: 

2 Corinthians 6:3–10, Matthew 5:11–12, Romans 8:31–39,
