aaron-burden-113284I talk to myself.  Do you?

Sometimes I am not very kind or truthful.

David (the B.C. songwriter, animal handler, dancer and king) talked to his soul.

He encouraged and reminded it. He fed it healthy soul-food.

Like this-man-after-God’s-own-heart wrote in Psalm 103, I want to re-fuel my soul with refreshing words:

  • Bless the Lord! Bless His Holy Name!
  • Don’t forget all the Lord’s benefits!
  • He has forgiven all your iniquity!
  • He has healed all your (soul) diseases!
  • He has redeemed your life from the pit!
  • He crowns you with steadfast love!
  • He crowns you with mercy!

Not from the inspired Word of God, but still humanly inspiring are words from Catherine Von Schlegel’s 18th century hymn Be Still My Soul:

Be still, my soul; the Lord is on thy side;
Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain;
Leave to thy God to order and provide;
In every change He faithful will remain.
Be still, my soul; thy best, thy heavenly, Friend
Through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.
