Whether or not soul care is a new concept for you or one that you have been aware of for decades we need to take care of our soul. We need to position ourselves to spend time with God and listen. This is not an easy task because our culture trains us to keep busy and give no thought or priority to spending time alone with God.
So, let’s try it, shall we. Let us take 5 minutes a day and be in silence by ourselves. Get to school or work five minutes before you normally get there and sit in your car or before you go into your home sit there and just be for a few minutes. Get up five minutes earlier or go to bed five minutes earlier and lay in your bed in the stillness of the evening and be with your Creator.
We should no longer just keep pressing on when our souls are thirsty, downcast, or unsatisfied. We need to be aware of our soul and it should be magnifying the Lord, glorifying God, and an ever-present witness to God’s grace and mercy.
Sunday we will be talking about the mind and how, very similar, to our souls, we neglect it – take it for granted and allow the world to take us away from what truly is important.
Reflect on Romans 12:1-2 in preparation for Sunday and pray about how you are to work toward renewing your mind and being a living sacrifice.
Blessings and hope to see you Sunday.
