"Remember, remember, you are more than flesh and bones. You are a soul needing grace and salvation on the narrow journey home." (words by Morgan Harper Nichols)
John Wesley was fond of asking the question, "How is it with your soul?" We get so busy, day to day, thinking about the practicalities of life (flesh and bones) that we forget to check-in on the status of our soul. Here are a few Bible verses for this morning that remind us of the importance of taking time to restore our souls.
Truly my soul finds rest in God; my salvation comes from him. Ps. 62:1.
Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God. Ps. 42:11.
Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. Matt. 11:28-30.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope. Rom. 15:13.
The Lord leads me beside still waters; the Lord restores my soul. Ps. 23.
