Welcome to Soul Food. Each Sunday on this site we focus on healthy living by reflecting on our soul and God. For if we neglect that, we have lost everything. (Luke 9:25 and Matthew 16:26.) It's always interesting to see people write their thoughts about coffee. For some they need three cups to make it through the day, for others it is the first thing they need in the morning in order for the planets to get along.

I've been thinking about this recently and it occurred to me that what if people lived for God like they do for coffee? Instead of coffee to make it through the day, what about Jesus? Instead of coffee first thing in the morning, what about reading the Bible and praying? Wouldn't that be a better start to the day? Me thinks so.

While I don't drink coffee, I have challenged myself to reading the Bible first thing before my official day begins. (Side Note: It's also nice to have a Bible reading plan to keep me to this goal! For 2012, I have made the goal of reading the entire Bible and I'm using the YouVersion app. If you haven't checked it out, you should, :)).

Back to the coffee topic. What would happen if coffee was the second thing you did to start your day? How could your life, perspective and attitude change by making God's Word a priority? It will change your life - for the better! God is an incredible source of inspiration and encouragement for your day ahead!
