Faith, Rest, Using Your Voice

A Nourished Soul

What feeds your soul?  This is the question on the table today.  Pull up a chair and bring your soul food.

Are you weary and heavy laden?  Jesus is calling you to rest. That looks different to all of us.  He made us, and knows what feeds our souls.

Read Matthew 11:28.


Ever since I was a child music has been my soul food, and singing, it’s like a decadent dessert in a five star restaurant.

I would sing along with the radio from the time I could talk.  More than often I could be found in the doorway on the tile stage with a brush for a microphone.  Today I have my own real mics, a stand, and a rock blocker I can take anywhere.

When I sing I feel like I’m doing what I was born to do.  Like a horse running with wind blowing through its hair.

When I watch American Idol and The Voice I secretly want to be a contestant.

Singing in the shower, in the car, karaoke, at a wedding, or on stage it is all a pleasure to me.

Without music in my life my soul wouldn’t rest.  Lyrics feed my soul, and help me detox what ails it.

Shhhhh, don’t tell anyone, but I write songs, and spontaneously sing new ones to God when no one is around.

Sing unto the Lord a new song is scripture that is thrilling to me.

So what do you have in your soul food box?
