Soul Health

When I say soul I am referring to mind and emotions primarily. Lets look at how we can improve these 2 areas of our world.

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Philippians 4:6 NLT

Worry is the devil of the mind.  Life is loaded with potentials for worry if we don’t control it. I know people who if they are not worrying about something they worry about that!

Stop the worry. Give it away; don’t just pray, leave it there.  Bring it under your control. Be the master of your own mind.

Undervalue is the devil of the soul.

Mature your emotional world by developing a healthy sense of personal value.  Don’t go cheap all the time.  What about eating out less but when you do go in style.  What about buying less clothes but when you do buy up.

Learn to be comfortable with value … that is who you are.  Made in the image of God no less.  Find your true value in God. Enlarge the space, beauty and value you give to your emotional world and LIVE!

“There is one thing one has to have: either a soul that is cheerful by nature, or a soul made cheerful by work, love, art, and knowledge.”  Friedrich Nietzsche (German classical scholar)
