It is Well with My Soul

Life is not always kind to us.

We are all struggling every day.  Struggling with bills, with family, with parenting, with disease, with insecurities, with loss, with worries of things yet to come.

With our own demons.

Demons that we do not realize we create.  Demons that we do not realize we have power over.

But life is not always hard.

Our happiness is a choice.
A choice to turn things over to a higher power.
A choice to change our own thoughts.
To bring positivity to the forefront of our minds.
To push the negative thoughts and needless worries aside.

And trust.

Trust that the power is there to bring to us what our hearts need.

I'm trusting in that power.

I'm handing over my struggles, knowing that whatever my lot, it is well with my soul.


  1. Beautiful! Wishing you a lovely weekend.

  2. It's so true we are surrounded by beauty everywhere we go, but sometimes we get so wrapped up in our problems we forget to take see it. Hope you have a wonderful day.
