This moving illustration tells the story of Horatio Spafford. As a man of devout faith, he experienced tragedy throughout his life, none more so than the tragic death of his four daughters. It is midst of his pain Spafford wrote the words to the hymn, It Is Well With My Soul. Spafford turned to his faith in Christ and the grace of God comes through loud and clear in this powerful song.

When believers least feel like singing, it is when we should do it the most. Singing restores, recharge us and reminds us of the work God has done in our lives.
                                                    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!
