SUMMER SOUL CARE
Summer can provide opportunities to slow down. As we take breaks from our regular routine, let's also take time to care for our souls. We know that nothing can separate us from the love of God, but at times, we become so busy with life that we can forget just how much He loves us. This summer treat yourself to some special times with the Lord to become more fully aware of His abiding love!
In Stephen W. Smith's book, "Embracing Soul Care", he says "Soul care takes time to learn. The more you practice, the better you get at it." Try some of these practical ideas to create space to care for your soul:
Psalm 35:9 - "Then my soul will rejoice in the Lord and delight in His salvation."
- Take a walk and spend some time thanking God for His Creation
- Read a Bible passage each morning and think it over during the day
- Listen to worship music while riding in your car or at the beach
- Spend some meaningful time with friends
