Greetings from the Soul Care Collective Steering Committee!
This weekly post includes a brief word about personal soul care from one of our amazing Soul Care Collective authors and will include an exercise for you to use at home to deepen your connection with God and nourish your soul. Consider this your invitation to stop, breathe, and take a moment to meet with God at the end of a busy week. We hope you enjoy it.
Sometimes it is easy to feel isolated and alone, like no one understand. Yet, there is One Who knows every fiber of your inmost being. In times of loneliness, we can cry out to the One Who knows us. The following Weekly Breather exercise comes from our friend, Laura Beach, and her ministry with Equipping Lydia. For more information about this ministry, visit their website here.
At the Well with Jesus
As you take long, deep breaths in and out:
Imagine yourself in your most isolated place.
You are at the Samaritan woman’s well.
Go there, Jesus is waiting for you.
Can you sit beside him and talk?
What does he say to you? What does he do?
Linger there and listen with your heart.
When you are able, pray outloud/journal/draw this prayer experience.
Can you offer a prayer of response?
