We all face disappointments in life that can leave our souls feeling weighed down and heavy. The Psalmist put it like this, "Why are you cast down, O my soul?” There’s no escaping an encounter with a heavy soul, but to live with one will drain our energy for life and relationships. Thankfully God has a cure for a heavy soul.
It’s not uncommon to feel like our soul is smack bang in the middle of a war zone, like there’s a constant fight going on for the allegiance of our soul. So often when we’re coming out of one battle, there seems to be another saga waiting on the horizon. If the fight for our soul is real and inevitable, how can we be prepared to win?
Jesus came to save our soul, and as our good shepherd He’s leading us towards having a healthy soul. Just like our bodies need certain essentials to be healthy, so does our soul! It’s time to get the right stuff in!
