David used his despair as a platform to draw others to faith in God. Others have done the same. One example in particular is Horatio Spafford, who penned the lyrics to “It is Well With my Soul.” Very few know the kind of tragedy this man and his wife experienced, and yet it produced the profoundly deep words of a well loved hymn. Below you will find a link to a modern version of this song. It has been a comfort to me and I hope it will be to you as well.
May your weekend be blessed with peace amidst the despair in our world! The waves and winds still know HIS name! Peace be still!
