All those years of trying this drug or that one, this alternative treatment or that one, listening to this expert or that one. Waiting for important new appointments, definitive test results, diving into studies and articles with the hopes of finding a clue to what the heck stole my beautiful girl's soul --- it all caught up with me. All at once. It was inevitable.
Hello......((hand raised high)).
I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them;
I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth.
These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them.
I leave you with this beautiful rendition of It is Well With My Soul by Audrey Assad. This incredible hymn was written by Horatio G. Spafford in 1873 as he sailed over the ship wreckage that took the lives of his four young daughters. The "Even If" song by MercyMe references this famous line.
