One of My Favorites
I really enjoyed our guest speaker at church, yesterday. The music was refreshing and we sang one of my all time favorite songs/hymns. As a kid, I use to listen to an animated Christian radio program and they told the story of how this one author, Horatio Spafford, after a series of events came to compose this particular hymn.
Knowing that the hymn was composed after the author had gone through so much tragedy makes it very real to me and the words clear. I hadn't thought about the hymn in a long time let alone sang it. It was a pleasant surpise.
