Preach To Yourself

Why, my soul, are you so dejected? Why are you in such turmoil? Put your hope in God, for I will still praise him, my Savior and my God.
Psalms 42:5

I love that God put a passages in the Bible where people talk to themselves.

“Hey soul, why are you so grumpy and down? Stop hoping in things that lead nowhere and remember to hope in God. Don’t worry, you’ll find joy in worship again.”

When you’re down, when your soul is troubled, when the darkness feels like there is no end… Talk to your soul.

You can let your worry and stress control you or you can speak life to your worry and stress.

You can let turmoil drill your life into the pit, or you can remind yourself that there is a hope that has the power to lift you up.

Lately, I’ve been talking to my soul daily. Reminding my soul that this is a season where I can grow in ways that were previously unknown to me. I talk to myself daily with words of God’s love and purpose so that I don’t fall into pity or impatience.

What situation do you need to talk to your soul about? Chances are likely God has a story or passage in the Bible that will guide your inner dialogue.
