Are You Suffering From Soul Sickness?

Prescription Bottle - blank labelJust got back from a doctor’s appointment. I never like going, but I know it’s necessary. Especially when I’m sick with an ailment that will need antibiotics to clear it up. I hate to take medication, but when it’s an infection I do what is necessary. Thankfully that wasn’t the reason for my most recent visit to the Doctor. It was just a routine exam. I thank God for doctors and nurses that help to keep me well. Yet there are only so many things that they can do.They treat the physical body, yet the soul can also be sick. Symptoms such as; emptiness, loneliness, loss of purpose and a cold heart are all indications of a broken relationship with God. You can’t be cured by taking the newest “happy” pills that the pharmaceutical companies put out or by going to the most knowledgeable doctor. To be cured from “soul sickness” you need to go to the Great Physician, God the Father, and ask His son Jesus into your heart, admitting that you’re a sinner. Confess it before others and live your life with God at the throne.  When you accept Christ as your Savior you will be filled with the presence of the Holy Spirit and this will give you relief from the emptiness you may feel. You are then a usable vessel of God himself as he fills you with His Spirit. This is what really satisfies. This is ultimate healing and wellness that you just can’t get from a pill or the best doctor in town.

He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. Psalm 147:3

  1. We spend a lot of time trying to improve our diets, exercise, finances and relationships. There are many programs to help support each of these areas. However, do we spend as much time working on our relationship with the Lord? It is our relationship with our Lord and Savior that impacts every other aspect of our lives but yet, is often the most neglected. Thanks for the reminder. I love the idea of looking at our soul health. Blessings!
