"Soul food"...

Our information age provides us with instant and on demand information and access to just about anything we can think of.

With just a few clicks we can learn what products to buy, where to go for fun, and even the right food to eat.

Now I am sure we all have learned that just because it’s on the internet doesn't necessarily mean that it's true...

We must consider the source....

We can even find arguments pro and con on the benefits of low carb, fat free, and diet foods these days.

It's very confusing, especially at times when all we have to rely on is ourselves…

What about the food for our souls?..

There is one thing that has not changed over time.

It's the Word and Truth in the Bible.

Sure, "religious fads" come and go but the Word and its source remain the same.

Consider the source.

How are you getting spiritually fed?..

Check your experience…

"Assuming we are spiritually fit, we can do all sorts of things" Big Book pg 100

Lord thank you for constantly and consistently offering Your Word as the Spiritual food and nourishment for our souls, AMEN.

"Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you." John 6:27

Have a blessed day y’all What if you had a person who coached and mentored you in building a better life?

Filling food…

Most folks I know are doing a better job these days of choosing better foods and meals.

Just like having the proper fuel for our cars, it’s important to have the proper fuel in the form of nutritious healthy food for our bodies.

Slowly the fast food chains are getting this message and it’s possible to get a sort of healthy meal from them if there are no other healthier options, but for the most part, fast food, like sugary snacks, are full of empty calories that fool our bodies and leave us more hungry as well as tired.

It’s the same in our spiritual nutrition as well.

We can fool ourselves and load up on man-made words and spiritual “junk food” that require no action on our part and make us feel momentarily good about ourselves.

Unfortunately, like fast food, this leaves us hungry and thirsty in our souls.

We can get true spiritual nutrition daily by turning our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understand Him and feast on His Word daily…

Check your experience…

“A new life has been given us or, if you prefer, "a design for living" that really works.” Big Book pg 28

Lord, let us feed spiritually on Your Word and the Holy Spirit, AMEN.

“Jesus replied, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry again. Whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.” John 6:35

Have a blessed day Y'all!

It seems we have seasons for everything in our lives.

We have clothes for the changing seasons.

Heck, even Arizonans have a jacket in the closet somewhere!

We have football, baseball, basketball, hockey, and other sports seasons.

We even have seasons that we can put on our food to spice it up or change the flavor.

What about our lives?

It's common to hear that folks are “going through a season” when there is change or challenge in their lives.

Change is inevitable for all of us.

It’s part of being human.

However, it’s how we deal with the change and the seasons in our lives that helps us grow spiritually.

Maybe it’s different for you, but I have learned to embrace change over the years.

I may still bristle when it comes unexpectedly, but I clear my mind and remind myself that I turned my will and life over the Lord when I got sober, and that frees me from pride and fear taking control of my thoughts and actions.

What about you?

Does change bring resistance and lock you in a battle with your self-centered feelings and pride preventing you from growing?

Perhaps change ignites fear inside of you, shutting off the Holy Spirit and trapping you within your closed mindset.

Or maybe you embrace change knowing there is a lesson to be learned and the outcome will make you a better person...

Check your experience...

“Our whole attitude and outlook upon life will change.” Big Book pg 84

Lord, thank you for the seasons in our lives that help us to grow in spirit and understanding.Please give our hearts comfort and our minds relief in times of change, reminding us that You know what is best for us and will NOT give us anything we cannot handle, AMEN.

“For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven.” Ecclesiastes 3:1
