How to Feed Your Soul

When we are feeling burned out, empty, dry, we invariably are told to eat well, get more sleep, and exercise. All of this is well-intentioned, good advice, which will certainly feed our body… but it will not feed our soul. Souls need food, and rest, and exercise of a different sort. Souls are fed with loving relationship, joy, and “every word that comes from the mouth of God.” Souls find rest in quiet contemplation and peace. Souls are exercised in prayer and worship. Not doing these things affects the soul like not eating or drinking affects the body.

Yours in Christ, Mother Candace+
