On The Bright Side – Mary Howell – January 10, 2013

Filed under: Mary Howell — Freddie Keel @ 6:44 am

This week’s column is based on a story received from my friends, Carl and Nell Anderson.  The following article was found in the Bible of Rev. Donald Spears after  his death in July, 2012. 

 

All Is Well With My Soul

He is the First and Last, the Beginning and the End! He is the Keeper of Creation and the Creator of it all.  He always was, He always is, and He always will be – Unmoved,  Unchanged, Undefeated, and never Undone.  He was bruised and brought healing.  He was persecuted and brought freedom.  He was dead and brought life.

 

Herod couldn’t kill Him, the Pharisees couldn’t confuse Him, Nero could not silence Him, and the people couldn’t hold Him!

 

He is light, love, longevity, and Lord.  He is goodness, kindness, gentleness, and God.  He is holy, righteous, mighty powerful and pure,.  His ways are right.  His Word is eternal.  His will is unchanging and His mind is on me.  He is my Redeemer, Savior and my Guide.  He is my peace. He is my joy, my comfort. He is my Lord and He rules my life.

 

I serve Him because His bond is love, His burden is light and His goal for me is abundant life.  I follow Him because He is the wisdom of the wise, the power of the powerful, the Ancient of Days, the ruler of rulers, the leader of leaders, the overseer of the over-comers and the sovereign LORD of all that was, and is, and is to come. His goal is a relationship with me! He will never leave me, never forsake me, never mislead me, never forget me, and never overlook me.

 

When I fall, He lifts me up.

When I fail, He forgives.

When I am weak, He is strong.

When I am lost, He is the way.

When I am afraid, He is my courage.

When I stumble, He steadies me.

When I hurt, He heals me.

When I am broken, He mends me.

When I am hungry, He feeds me.

When I face trials, He is with me.

When I face persecution, He shields me.

When I face problems, He comforts me.

When I face loss, He provides for me.

When I face death, He carries me home.

He is everything for everybody, everywhere, every time and in every way. He is GOD, He is faithful.  I am His and He is mine.

So, if you’re wondering why I feel so secure, understand this – HE SAID IT AND THAT SETTLES IT.  God is in control, I am on His side and that means – all is well with my soul.

 

My wish for you is that all is well with your soul and that you have a life on the bright side.
