What images are conjured up in your mind when I say nourish? Do you see a hot bowl of soup? A warm mug of tea? A beautiful sunrise or sunset? We often forget that our living soul needs nourishment.
Nourishment restores and encourages. Nourishment gives strength to fight life’s battles. I often think of the Super Mario game I played a long time ago. As Mario ran, jumped, and hopped he needed to pick up “nourishment” to sustain his super animated strength. This nourishment came in jumping up and catching stars or whatever the game offered as extra.
We are finite human beings whose souls need to be nourished. Are you taking time for God’s word? Are you taking the time to pray? Are you worshiping him as you go throughout your day? Filling your soul with positive words, filling your mind with positive thoughts. Encourage others with a positive word, great devotional, article…
Philippians 4:8 New International Version
8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
Today as you go about your I pray you nourish your soul and are nourishment to others as well!
- Nourishing my soul along with yours. Dwelling on lovely, true, admirable and pure! Amen
