Who I am:
Hello everyone. My name is Marvina. I’m 26, I’m a follower of Christ, I’m a mother to an amazing 2 year old little boy named Liam, I’m a wife, a lifestyle blogger, and a full time college student. Welcome to It is Well…With My Soul.
What this blog is about:
In this blog you will find all sorts of inspiring content, from my family life, to what I feel inspires me. I also have another blog: http://lilvina25.blogspot.com/ There you will find the same content, however if I decide to do videos, those will be there, so feel free to check those posts as well.
Why I started this blog and where it’s at now:
I started this blog because I love to write, and I wanted to just write about my life. I think I have finally found a title that fits what this year and many years for me have been through. I am the type of person where I always need to know what is going on, and I love to schedule, hence why I have a planner and like 3 calendars in my home. And when things don’t go as planned, I get a little freaked out and scared. Well lately we have been hit with so many things that my mind has been like crazy and I really needed to feel like something was ok. I then got my bible and journal out and started jotting down all the verses that I could find dealing with stress, and rest and assurance. I then went to a website and saw this song: It is well with my soul. Obviously, I’m a Christian, I’ve been to church my whole life, so I have heard this song so many times, but this time I really read the words and it just broke my heart. I then read these verses:
Philippians 4:6-7 New International Version (NIV)
6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
I realized that no matter what happens in my life, good, bad, anything, God is always with me. It can be really hard to trust him when you feel like everything bad is just crashing down on you and your faith is just dwindling day after day after day. So this song…it is well, with my soul…is just a reassurance that it will be ok…because God is here with me through all of it. So when I asked God whether or not I should change my blog…This is the answer I got: Yes Marvina…Change the title first to: It is well…With my soul. And I just knew, right then and there, that it was perfect. It summed up how I’ve been feeling for a few years and for a few months. So I’m going to leave the song lyrics and when you read them…just know that God is with you…so you can rest easy that things will be ok in the end. 🙂
It Is Well With My Soul
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.
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.
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!
For me, be it Christ, be it Christ hence to live:
If Jordan above me shall roll,
No pang shall be mine, for in death as in life
Thou wilt whisper Thy peace to my soul.
And Lord haste the day, when my 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.
When I post:
I post Tuesdays, and Thursdays. If there are any changes, I will let you know.
What I love to do in my spare time:
In my spare time I love to spend time with God by reading my bible, and journaling, I love to read, write, sing, play my piano, and spend time with my family and friends.
