It Is Well // Glimpses v.11 — 27 Comments

  1. I love that song!! My favorite version was on an old album by Audio Adrenaline I believe, that featured Jennifer Knapp I think??? Can’t remember but it as beautiful. I also love your list. This is a good list if there ever was one! Blessings to you my friend and thank you for hosting!

  2. I love that song, Barbie. Peace doesn’t always come in like a river for me either. Sometimes I feel more of the “sorrows like sea billows roll.” But whatever our lot, He has promised it is well with our souls. Such beautiful grace. Thank you for your encouragement that God promises peace. Blessings and hugs to you!

    • So true Trudy. I don’t like having to fight for peace, but the cares of this world cloud my judgment at times. So thankful for His loving embrace and His grace.

  3. It is Well is one of my favorite hymns too. I also started singing the words as I began reading your post.

    You ask a great question. God brings me peace when I continually invite Him in and make space for the peace. That means letting go of the junk that clouds my vision. Hope you have a blessed week friend!

  4. Hi Barbie. This song is just one more that the Lord needed me to hear to remind me that He is in control. Every song during worship yesterday did the same. Thank you for writing. I always enjoy reading what God has laid on your heart. Have a blessed day!

  5. It’s funny that you write about this today, Barbie, because I also wrote about singing a song at church yesterday that I want to be true in my life, but I’m not quite there yet. So grateful for grace for what we can yet become!

  6. Oh I love this, Barbie! Just last week when running errands, the Lord reminded me that He is with me and that He WANTS to give me rest. I wrote about it for the Five Minute Friday prompt Listen (which is what I linked up above!)

    (And Happy Birthday to your Mom!)

  7. Hi Barbie! I think linking trust with peace is really wise. If I trusted more, I could pray, and then let go. I need to practice that more deeply every day. Still not there yet!
    Thank you for letting me see that I’m not the Lone Ranger here 🙂
    Happy Monday,

  8. Barbie, that is one of my absolute favorite hymns to play on the piano. The words help me remember that God can give peace any time no matter the circumstances.

    Blessings to you!
