It Is Well

It is well with my soul, 
because it is well with me and God!

He delights in me!
“The Lord delights in those who fear Him, who put their hope in His unfailing love.” 
Psalm 147:11

I am chosen!
“God has chosen you from the beginning for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and faith in the truth.”  
2 Thes. 2:13

I am holy!
“For He chose us in Him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in His sight.”  
Eph. 1:4

I am dearly loved!  
“Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.”  
Col. 3:12

I am blessed!
“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.”  
Eph. 1:3

My hunger pleases Him!
“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.”  
Matt. 5:6

My desire to grow pleases Him!
“But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”  
2 Peter 3:18

It should be well with my soul—it IS well with my soul
because God is pleased with me!

Not every day will be happy, 
but every day can be well with my soul!

As I keep coming to Him, as I keep seeking Him—
I am finding my fulfillment in Him!

I am learning to let His pleasure in me be enough!
Not fearing man’s response to me.  Not being crushed by the lack of it.
He is enough!

Learning to consciously take captive all thoughts of failure, of lack.
Learning to not let my day, my circumstance, my need deflate me.
Learning to not let others opinions, judgments, actions define me.
I seek Him—His face—I seek only to please Him, find Him . . . and I will.
I am!

I rejoice in the days to come, for it is well with my soul!

Is it well with your soul?
Is it well between you and He?
Do you see yourself as Jesus sees you?
Are you in a stuck place?
