Devotions from Stephen Smith’s book, Soul Custody

How important it is to make space in our lives for what really matters. We can choose soul care that will, over time, bring healing, strength, and spiritual well-being. In fact, our small choices lead to larger choices and impact for a long time. Each day we choose how we will live: we can choose life or death, blessings or curses. We can choose if soul care is a priority in our life  and if we want to live the life God intends for us. Our souls get impoverished because we assume that we can live our life on automatic pilot. The truth is that our souls need ongoing attention and choices are a gift from God.  We need to wake up to live before we die!  Life here and now is a part of God’s will for us-not just the one in heaven.  Let us choose to live now, to find new meaning, new purpose, new reason to live –and then to protect and guard this life. It is our one and only life!  We get out of life what we put into it.
