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.) Soul Food: never stop praying and telling God the desires of your heart. And that you would walk in His plan for your life even during the valleys.
Do you ever feel like giving up on your prayers- what your heart desires- and longs for? Perhaps it is a spouse, children, your own home, a dream job, losing weight, a personal record in a race...whatever it may be, sometimes it feels like what you really desire may never happen.
Maybe what happens is that what we want becomes bigger then what God wants for us. Perhaps we are so focused on ____ (fill in the blank) that we forget God actually has a plan for our life. Read this verse: "David continued to address Solomon: "Take charge! Take heart! Don't be anxious or get discouraged. God, my God, is with you in this; he won't walk off and leave you in the lurch. He's at your side until every last detail is completed for conducting the worship of God." (1 Chronicles 28:20)
How amazing is that?! We don't have to be discouraged because God is with us! We don't have to lose sleep at night worrying about what will happen. God already has that under control. We just need to keep praying and seeking God in whatever we do. Acknowledging that we need Him.
As you head into a new week, seek God. Pray that you will stay strong. That when you grow weary, you'll turn to God instead of empty things. Have a hearts desire? Make sure God is in that desire.
peace, sweat, love: life
