Speak To Your Soul

Sometimes

our souls need a talking to

 

We ourselves

need to remind the deepest part of us

 

to wake up!

to rally

to trust

 

to rest in our life-giving God

 

Our souls

can be dragged down

can lose hope

can forget….

 

God’s perfect love

and care

 

So, awake my soul!

Why so downcast?

 

Open your eyes, soul

 

Put your trust in Him

and praise Him

 

from the deepest part

 

– Susie Stewart

 

Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise Him, my Savior and my God.

– Psalm 42:11 (NIV)

 

Awake, my soul! Awake, harp and lyre! I will awaken the dawn.

– Psalm 57:8 (NIV)

 

Be at peace again, my soul, because the Lord has been good to you.

– Psalm 116:7 (GW)

 

Surely I have calmed and quieted my soul; Like a weaned child [resting] with his mother, My soul is like a weaned child within me [composed and freed from discontent].

– Psalm 131:2 (AMP)

 

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.

– Mark 12:30 (NIV)

 

Bless and affectionately praise the Lord, O my soul, And do not forget any of His benefits

– Psalm 103:2 (AMP)
