Food for the soul

“I will praise You, O LORD, with my whole heart;  I will tell of all Your marvelous works.” Ps. 9:1

“The heavens declare the glory of God;  And the firmament shows His handiwork. ” Ps. 19:1

“The LORD lives! Blessed be my Rock! Let the God of my salvation be exalted.” Ps. 18:46

Food.

Food not for the body, but for the spirit,

Fills up the soul.

For the believer scripture is the best food.

I did not always recognize the need for scripture.

Yet when I began to be in want of wisdom, comfort, guidance, and discernment the Lord would point me to His Word.

I remember sitting, staring at the pages, wondering why it was so difficult to remember what I was reading.

Being impatient to find the best verses, wondering why God included long lists of names, and overall feeling frustrated.

Yet I knew the answers I needed were worth the search.

As I began,  I learned God placed every line in the Bible for a reason.

And it may not speak to me today or tomorrow but if I was faithful it would.

So I have come to love the Bible more than ever before.

I have been blessed many times with comfort,  guidance, encouragement, discernment, and perspective through God’s Word.

And even today I am in need of its strength,
To feed my soul,
To guide my heart,
To encourage my mind.

And as i open it this morning i was blessed by these verses above.

I hope they bless you as well.
