WHY SHOULD I GIVE UP

Philippians 4:7 

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.



This song "it is well with  My Soul" was written by a successful Christian lawyer Heratio Spafford.
His only son died at age 4 in 1871.
In 1872, the great Chicago fire wiped out his vast estate, made from a successful legal career.
 In 1873 he sent his wife & 4 daughters over to Europe on a summer trip on the ill fated SS Ville du Havre.
Since he had a lot of work to do, he planned to follow them later.
The Ship sank and he lost his 4 daughters with the wife being the only survivor.
She sent him a famous telegram which simply read, "SAVED ALONE...."

On his return home, his Law firm was burned down and the insurance company refused to pay him. They said "It's an Act of God".

He had no money to pay for his house and no work, he also lost his house.
Then while thinking about what happened to him, and being a spiritual person, he wrote a song -

"Whatever, my Lord, You have taught me to say - It is well, it is well with my soul".

"Your hardest times often lead to the greatest moments of your life. Keep going. Tough situations build strong people in the end"

When you look at your life, career, job or family life, what do you say?
Do you praise God?
Do you blame the devil?


Say this "Today, God, it is well with my soul, I am thankful I had a peaceful sleep, I am thankful I am alive with possibilities, I am thankful I have a roof over me, I am thankful I have a job, I am thankful that I have Family and Friends."
