Soul Care and Transformation
"Cease striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth." (Psalm 46:10)
How do we feed our souls and train in life-giving spiritual disciplines for this marathon? How can we build Sabbath into our lives to genuinely experience rest? What does it take to refocus and refuel on the run? How can we pace ourselves for "A Long Obedience in the Same Direction"? Christians--especially those in full-time ministry--may sometimes neglect our own souls even while we encourage and nurture others to grow. How is it with your soul?
Christ-centered, Biblically-based soul care is not introspection. (And it's not just for introverts!) It means practicing the spiritual disciplines that ground us in the Word, tune us into the Spirit's leading, and spur us to walk in greater obedience and joy. It means living out Jesus' patterns of solitude, community, and ministry. It means weaving Sabbath rest and healthy, holy rythms into our work and relationships so we walk in freedom. It means following hard after God with our head, heart, and hands.
Do you need to pull away and receive renewed strength and vision for your life or ministry? Could you use a Day of Refreshing or a Refocus and Refuel retreat to clear out all the fears and anger and confusion and apathy and dullness that can set in if we don’t pay attention to the state of our own souls? Come and receive a shot of life-giving encouragement. We’ll consider how to consistently integrate healthy, holy rhythms into our life so we can live in Him freely and lightly. We sometimes think cannot afford to take time out of our busy schedules, but in reality, we can’t afford not to!
Our next Day of Refreshing is December 8th. Click for more information.
