Thoughts for the Journey

John Wesley would check in with groups by asking “How is it with your Soul?” The

word soul seems not be in vogue these days. Many today do not realize that we each

have a soul or that our soul needs to be tended to. Our soul is the essence of who we are,

who we are created to be. It flows throughout our body just like the blood in our veins.

The Hebrew word for soul is nephesh, the very breath and spirit of God. Our soul defines us.

How is it with your soul? How have you taken care of it? My prayer is that you will

nurture and know your soul….sothat you can truly be who God made you to be.

Thoughts for the Journey

“Love makes the world go round” so the saying goes. Just think how many love stories have

been written, love songs sung and danced throughout all time. Do you have a favorite one?

Our scriptures today tell us how love works and that God is Love.

The greatest love story ever told is the Bible. “For God so loved the world that he gave

his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life”

(John 3:16) How will you love the Lord with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength this week?

Where will you spread the love of Christ?

 Thoughts for the Journey

Why do we sing in worship rather than just think or talk with one another?

“Singing is a language that God has given us to express our deepest longing, greatest joy,

and most profound trust in the One who created us and love us unconditionally,” (Carolyn Gillette).

We sing because it touches our hearts and soothes our souls. We sing because it helps

us remember and gives us joy.

“Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth.” (Psalm 100)

“All you saints! Sing your hearts out to God!” (Psalm 30.5)

Thoughts for the Journey

“Clothes make the person” so the saying goes. But what about our Christian garb? Elvis

might have had blue suede shoes, but we have the original divine designer label in Jesus Christ.

What a privilege to have Christian as our label! When we are in the world, our “dress for success”

includes telling the truth, allowing our Faith in Christ to guide us as we wear the Gospel of Love

and live life with Integrity. Will you have the courage and boldness to put on Christ every day?
