It is well…

“Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say, It is well, it is well, with my soul.” – Horatio Spafford

This simple, yet classic phrase seems to be the theme of Grace College’s campus in this time. Having just experienced a tragedy that nobody should ever go through, we are trying our hardest to push on.  With the death of a student, it is difficult to live on as if everything is normal.  How do we find solace?  Perhaps merely in realizing that through God alone can it be well with our souls.  Prayer and the Psalms have given me much peace.  I would highly recommend giving it a try when you feel as if nothing could be well with your soul.

In my life, there have been several triumphs and defeats.  For one, we held Remnant drama team auditions and had a pretty poor turnout.  I would like to have had about three times the students show up.  We are going to try to host one more audition in order to attract students who could not show up before.  We also won an intramural soccer game this week, but it was our very first win.  Unfortunately, that puts us at 1-3-2.  What is certainly a triumph through our disappointing record is that we as a team are very united.  Our hall always comes out to play, not necessarily to win. We have fun and we love what  we do.  I think that our unity is a great example of how the body of Christ should work together.  We go to the field together and strive on together, but we never forget how to lift each other up and support one another. Triumph.
