thatswhatevesaid: about being rich

How is your soul doing these days?

If you’re stumped and don’t know what I mean, allow Google….

soul
sōl/
noun
1. the spiritual or immaterial part of a human being or animal, regarded as immortal.
 the soul is an ‘immaterial part’ of a living thing –
and that living thing is you, darlin’.

Isn’t that sweet, you have a soul…awe. 

I like to think of my soul as the true version of myself; the guiding principle from within that determines everything about who, and what I am.  It’s kind of a big deal.

Within the past year, I’ve seriously and intimately focused on my spiritual walk with God,

“You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:13 (NIV)

It’s amazing. The happiness, the excitement, and the joy that comes from pursuing the Almighty Creator! Not only that, but the richness that is added to your life….to your soul.

I’m totally with you when you mention how chocolate adds richness to your life too, but I mean rich in the sense of quality or depth overall (in this case, the soul and its correspondence with God).  God has a really good way of way of layin’ it down smooth,

He says:

“Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take, or sit in the company of mockers, (2) But those who delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on His law day and night. (3) That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruits in season and who’s leaf does not wither — whatever they do prospers!” Psalm 1:1-3 (NIV)

The truth is when you chose God, He makes life awesome.  People often ask me how I can be so positive all the time.  My response rests in the joy from my Savior; I have been provided the luxury of enriching my soul through Jesus.

I believe that the most important thing one can do is find richness in life and take time to know oneself. To develop your ‘immaterial part’ and grow within the likeness of God.

I’m still learning, and I’m aware that I probably will be for a long time. This concept of the soul is difficult to articulate, and even imagine! But, I feel more purpose and delight as I’ve nurtured this urge I feel towards God.

 

So step aside, I’m rich.
