When a Shunnamite woman’s son tragically dies, she displays an amazing peace and hope as she says it is well with me and my son. She had a hope of eternal life that gave her an amazing peace even in the midst of an unimaginable tragedy. This woman, and Horatio Spafford the author of the hymn, It is Well with My Soul, show us that God can give a peace that passes all understanding during tragedy. When we have the correct perspective of our loved ones eternal state, when we know their soul is at rest in Christ, we can say also it is well with my soul.
