When Horatio Spafford looked out across the place where his daughters drowned in a ship wreck, can you even imagine the emotions flooding over him?
What pain! What horrible, sickening emptiness! What incomparable sorrow!
Yet, no doubt trembling, with tears wetting his cheeks, he was warmed by the peace that passes understanding and composed the words to one of the Christian world’s most beloved hymns… “It Is Well With My Soul.”
This morning, a friend on Facebook forwarded me a link to some Nashville studio vocalists and their unbelievable rendition of “It Is Well,” all done on their cell phones!
Let me tell you, like some old preachers used to say, “If that doesn’t light your fire, your wood is wet!”
I couldn’t keep still, couldn’t stay seated, and couldn’t keep quiet. It became a hanky-waving, hand-clapping, “thank you Jesus” time.
Now, why don’t you watch and listen and see if your fire will light … unless your wood is too wet 😉
Just click on the link, below. It will take you to the News4 story and video.

I’m totally unmoved. Is that bad?
Horrible. Just horrible. Obviously you’re backslidden and dang near apostate. Tragic.
Or, maybe you’re becoming Presbyterian.
Their faces distracted me. It felt like a vocal show-off. Too much stylized singing, too breathy. Over-produced.
You’re hard to buy for, aren’t you? I can just sense it.
I am hard to buy for. I beg people “Please, never give me a gift.”
The first time my husband sent me roses I said in complete sincerity, “Next time, just give me the cash and let’s save for a vacation!”
I do love that song though. If the Church of Christ wasn’t a cult I’d fit right in with the singing part.
I don’t think that video was Church of Christ affiliated, was it?
No but the Church of Christ doesn’t use instruments. They’re still a cult. But the singing can sound so pure.
I understand. Just get you a tuning pipe… Oh! Could that be a gift? Do you have one of those?
I love those!
