What Do Our Souls Eat?

I’ve been following the Desiring God blog quite regularly and it’s full of real good stuff!  Lovely snippets which are great for reflecting on our relationship with God or even what we should be doing to nourish our walk with Him.

Today’s article is really insightful.  I never thought of it that way, that souls need feeding and that they feed on hope, no less:

Our souls are hope machines. We consume hope every day. And when we run low on hope we start feeling discouraged, even desperate.

All the wonderful things that have happened to us in the past will not fuel our hope if our future looks bleak. We can be grateful for the past. But we must have hope for the future in order to keep going.


well worth a read.
