we need it every day…

another of the spiritual passion killers in your life is a starving soul.

deuteronomy 8.3 (nlt) says. people need more than bread in their life.  real life comes by feeding on every word of the LORD. 

what would you call a person who ate only once a week?  you’d call them starving.  a lot of americans are starving spiritually because they’re not nourishing their soul. 

our soul needs to be nourished because every day of our life there are circumstances that conspire against every one of us to shrink our spirit and shrivel our soul.  every day you’re facing distractions and disappointments.  every day you’ve got problems and pressures.  you’ve got conflicts, confusion.  every day you’ve got frustration and failure and fatigue.  they’re coming at our lives, every one of us. 

and because these happen in our lives you and i have to decide to intentionally feed our soul or else we’re going to lose our passion – without a shadow of a doubt.  that’s just the reality of life. 

so what do you feed your soul with?  how do you counter all those circumstances that come our way?  you feed your soul with GOD’s word.  this is the bread the bible’s talking about.  GOD’s word feeds our soul.

just a thought from the front porch…
