It is that time of year again! Soup time!
Just like a warm bowl of soup feels on a cool fall day – warming our soul, so does the Word of God! It fills us up and warms us on the inside.
Some days I need something to warm my soul – soup does that for me. It is comforting. I love ALL kinds of soup! Not only do I enjoy eating them, but I enjoy making them too. Chopping all kinds of vegetables and adding special spices and seasonings, this blending and simmering in anticipation of a savory delight!
Psalm 34:8 says “Taste and see that the Lord is good! How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!”
When my heart feels restless and I’m not feeling quite content with life, I need to feed my soul with God’s word, His truths, and His promises. His is my rock and my salvation in which I take refuge in. By reading His Word, I am reassured, because everything in this life is temporary – all situations and circumstances will not last forever… BUT the love of our Lord will last for eternity! Now that is soul warming!
