It Is Well, With My Soul, Horatio Spafford 感人的故事! 這個世界充滿了苦難,也充滿了克服,願主的恩典及信心,戰勝許多苦難, 阿門!

這個世界充滿了苦難,也充滿了克服,
The World is full of suffering,
It is also full of overcoming it,

生命偉大勝利不在於從不失敗,而在於每次跌倒我們都從信心中站起;
The great victory in living lies not never falling,
But in rising everytime we fall;

這是一個鼓舞人心的信仰,希望和勇氣的個人旅程故事

Horatio Spafford 出生於 1882年10月20日,紐約州特洛伊市- 是一個著名的美國律師,家庭非常有錢,也是一個非常虔誠的基督徒,他與Anna Spafford 結婚,有一位兒子四位女兒,家庭一直很美滿。

1871年同年,Horatio Spafford 兒子因腥熱發燒過世,家庭一度陷入低潮,

1873年,Horatio Spafford 與Anna 一直期待全家有一個英國旅遊,由於生意耽擱,他就先讓Anna及四位女兒坐遊艇 S.S. Villa Du Havar 英國,他預計幾天後跟過去,

1873年11月22日,遊艇 S.S. Villa Du Havar 在穿越大西洋時,被一架鐵帆船撞翻,船上226人全喪生包括他四個女兒,僅他太太Anna獲救。幾小時後,Anna 送訊息告訴 Horatio Spafford "僅她獲救”,他立刻去英國與Anna 相會,這一連串 Horatio Spafford 家庭悲劇,讓他寫下最有名的基督教聖歌 It Is Well, With My Soul。後來,他與Anna 就辦一個很大孤兒院每年照顧 30000名孤兒,把他們預備給他們兒女的愛,給更多需要的孩子,成為著名的歷史。

When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say,
It is well, it is well with my soul.

(Refrain:) It is well (it is well),
with my soul (with my soul),
It is well, it is well with my soul.

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ hath regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul. (Refrain)

My sin, oh the bliss of this glorious thought!
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to His cross, and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul! (Refrain)

For me, be it Christ, be it Christ hence to live:
If Jordan above me shall roll,
No pain shall be mine, for in death as in life
Thou wilt whisper Thy peace to my soul. (Refrain)

And Lord haste the day, when the faith shall be sight,
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll;
The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend,
Even so, it is well with my soul. (Refrain)

The Widow’s Olive Oil
4 The wife of a man from the company of the prophets cried out to Elisha, “Your servant my husband is dead, and you know that he revered the Lord. But now his creditor is coming to take my two boys as his slaves.”

2 Elisha replied to her, “How can I help you? Tell me, what do you have in your house?”

“Your servant has nothing there at all,” she said, “except a small jar of olive oil.”

3 Elisha said, “Go around and ask all your neighbors for empty jars. Don’t ask for just a few. 4 Then go inside and shut the door behind you and your sons. Pour oil into all the jars, and as each is filled, put it to one side.”

5 She left him and shut the door behind her and her sons. They brought the jars to her and she kept pouring. 6 When all the jars were full, she said to her son, “Bring me another one.”

But he replied, “There is not a jar left.” Then the oil stopped flowing.

7 She went and told the man of God, and he said, “Go, sell the oil and pay your debts. You and your sons can live on what is left.”
