Is it well with your soul?
Is it well with your soul? I love how my church's, Allegheny Center Alliance Church in Pittsburgh, Pa, worship team sings traditional hymns and some contemporary songs. As stated in the post last week I grew up in a traditional AME Zion church; I have vivid memories of singing in the pews with hymnal in hand.
I love traditional hymns. One of my favorite hymns is It Is Well With My Soul by Horatio G. Spafford, 1873.
My sin—oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!--
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!
It is well with my soul,
It is well, it is well with my soul.
Read that verse again. Did you get goosebumps, the chills and/ or butterflies in your stomach? I always do when I sing this song. God’s love is so immense for me and you that He sacrificed His son to bear our sins. Thank you Jesus! My soul is well.
Is it well with your soul? One of the ways that makes your soul well is worshiping God.
I love worshiping God through music. When I sing and listen to my favorite praise and worship songs I feel his presence. When we praise God, He is here in our midst!
Why should we worship God?
“Honor the Lord, you heavenly beings;
honor the Lord for his glory and strength.
Honor the Lord for the glory of his name.
Worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness.” Psalm 29: 1-2 (NLT)
God is good, perfect, holy, blameless, love, strength, comfort, provider, life, peace and so much more. You are made to crave and worship God. He fills your hearts with peace and joy.
“Dear children, keep away from anything that might take God’s place in your hearts.” 1 John 5:21 (NLT)
When you don’t worship Him, you worship something else. Those other things will not make your soul well. See my previous post Like , Love or Lust Objects of worship (Idols).
When we worship the Lord, He gives us strength and blesses us with peace.
“The Lord gives his people strength.
The Lord blesses them with peace.” Psalm 29:11 (NLT)
Is it well with your soul? How are you worshiping the Lord? Are you taking time to praise Him and give Him thanks. Are you worshiping something else? I know that our lifestyle is actually a form of worship, but in this post I'm talking about setting a special time for worship (besides Sunday morning at church).
What is your favorite way to worship the Lord? Let me know. Worship Him, your soul will be well.
It is well with my soul.

Here’s my 2 play lists I’ve been worshipping and grooving to! I’m a child of the 90’s and loved rap/Hip – Hop, and I was so happy to find some good Christian Hip – Hop to dance and workout to (my praise beats list). Let me know what your think.
