Emaciated Souls

Friday is for Heart Songs

The Imitation of Christ“One does not know love wihtout pain.

Book 3 Chapter 16,
The Imitation of Christ, Thomas aKempis

“The worth and excellency of a soul is to be measured in the object of its love.”

The Life of God in the Soul of Man
Henry Scougal, 1677

Our soul’s become emaciated when they are affixed to anything less than God. Our heart’s shrink when they are fed by things, and accomplishments, and goals, Anything less than the God who created us is lacking in vital nutrients for the soul. Our soul’s need God even when we don’t know we need God.

Lord, for the sake of Christ and in His Name, help me to train my soul to feast on You. Amen.
