When we think about food we think of grocery stores, restaurants or fast food. The food that we consume causes so many different emotions to stir up inside of us. Food can make you happy, sad, depressed, uncomfortable, and even angry….(with a little heartburnJ). Being that we are always contemplating what to put into our bodies, how much thought do we invest into how we feed our mind and soul? To feed your mind and soul means seeking knowledge and understanding to grow spiritually as well as personally and professionally. GOOD words and GOD’s word is like food for your spiritual being. Prayer is therapy for your soul and meditation for your mind. One should never stop seeking the answers to the questions they have and the knowledge that will fuel their next steps.
During difficult times, we can depend on our spiritual knowledge to strengthen our faith and restore our beliefs in our creators power and HIS ability to lead us out of the darkness. We are given all of the tools and resources necessary to build an abundantly balanced life. How are you strengthening you mind and soul? Matthew 6:33-34 (New American Standard Bible) reads, “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be added unto you. So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough troubles of its own.”
Your physical body must be nourished with healthy foods and daily physical activity to stay energized and in good shape. The choices that we make in our 20’s and 30’s, will affect how our bodies treat us, in our 40’s, 50’s and beyond. In saying this, we must realize that one day, our physical being will return us back to dust but our spiritual being will search for a dwelling place. Will you be lost?
Take the time out to start reading and educating yourself. Pray for peace and understanding. Be patient and GOD will guide you down the right path. Ask GOD to speak to your heart and learn to patiently wait on guidance.
