What do you do when your soul is tired and on edge? I think most of the world is in that place today. I hear repeated advertisements for pillows, beds, and vacations all claiming to have the solution.

Diversions can be a sign of denial

If your soul is the issue, then how will spending a week on the beach help? I like the beach but if I don’t help my soul it is just a diversion. Our soul is that part of us that guides our life.

I have always defined a soul as that part of you where your mind, your will, and your emotions come together. I believe people have souls and animals have souls.

My dog has a soul because he shows emotion. He also can make a decision and follow his will and thinking to obey or not obey. Just say the word “come.” I have also seen him sick and unable to will his body to respond.

Pictures of his life as a puppy.

When we first got Bo in March. He was less than 5 lbs. A great listener.

Resting – two weeks later and already 7-8 lbs. A growing boy needs rest for a happy soul.

At 11 months and 65-70 lbs and full of life. His body is grown but his soul is growing.

We all know that kids and puppies grow healthy and strong with healthy food and rest. Daily nap time is important for building a healthy outlook on life. We are always more positive when we are rested.

One of the most recognized phrases of the Bible is the 23rd Psalm, “He restoreth my soul.”

David knew what Jesus came to tell us. If you need soul surgery, I am the answer. Matthew said in Chapter 11, “28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” ”

Take a moment and say this, “God, my attempts at rest for my soul have failed. Would You please do what You said? I give You my soul. Touch my soul.”

God is the soul minder.
