Soul Care, God's Way

WATCH OVER YOUR HEART WITH ALL DILIGENCE FOR FROM IT FLOW THE SPRINGS OF LIFE. PROV. 4:23




Caring for our soul takes time, energy and commitment. Spiritual growth doesn’t occur in a vacuum but it happens in relationship; with God and with others.

There is a need for transparency and vulnerability before God and before each other. The health of your soul does matter. Soul care is a life-long journey that will transform you from the inside it. It will impact those that God entrusts to your care.

Do you have a “hole” in your soul? A sense of disconnect that halts your life at times; a sense of something unfinished. Is there longing for something more? How badly we need to hear from Him! Soul care is making space in your life to connect with God allowing Him to speak to you. He wants to reignite the passion for the call He has placed upon your life.

Soul care, God’s way; is not an easy journey. It will strip away the lies and deceits of your heart. It is painful in the brutal honesty that leaders need from Him. This journey cannot be rushed as step by step He begins to restore our soul back to health once again.

Soul care is deliberately creating “holy habits” into our daily lives. These habits will ensure that we stay attached to the life-giving Vine. It is only by abiding in Him that our ministry remains effective and fruitful. Caring for your soul is foundational to how you live and how you lead.
