no matter what,
the Christian can always say:
it is well
because God (Whose we are) is
extremely merciful and gracious,
always good and faithful,
ever powerful and sovereign,
all-knowing and completely wise,
strong and sweetly sufficient
in every season.
sure, we may not always feel swell,
but the fact is that we are well.
"return to rest, o my soul, for the Lord has dealt bountifully with you."
psalm 116 v. 7
