The title of this blog comes from one of my favorite hymns."It is Well With My Soul"
When peace like a river attendeth my way
When sorrows like sea billows roll, Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say
It is well, it is well, with my soul

A Dose of Truth
I am reading a new devotional book by Nancy Guthrie called the One Year book of Hope.
Today's reading was titled "Telling Yourself the Truth" When I struggle with doubts or fears or just life in general... I need truth... not my version of truth, not the worlds version of truth but God's truth.
You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways Psalm139:3
for all my ways are known to you Psalm 119:168b
He knows me, he knows my weaknesses...when I think about someone who knows me well it would be my husband...but God knows me even better than him..there is no hiding who I really am from God...he already knows...I find that comforting
If I rise on the wings of dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your right hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast Psalm 139:9-10
No matter where I am or what I am going through He is there, guiding me, holding me fast
You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you Isaiah 26:3
There is peace avaliable when I focus on His truths..must reorient my thinking once again
