It is good to renew ourselves


We tend to get use to the ways of life and falls into the habit of just doing things as always, but is this way good, edifying and encouraging to our own lives and also to those around us?

It is good to renew ourselves from time to time by closely examining the state of our souls, as if we had never done it before. For nothing tends more to the full assurance of faith than to keep ourselves by this means in humility and the exercise of all good works.
– John Wesley
A Longing for Holiness

Beloved, in regard to all things I pray that you prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers.
(3 John 1:2.)

Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.
(Proverbs 16:24.)

The light of the eyes rejoices the heart; a good report makes the bones fat.
(Proverbs 15:30.)

A sound heart is the life of the flesh, but envy the rottenness of the bones.
(Proverbs 14:30.)

A merry heart does good like a medicine, but a broken spirit dries the bones.
(Proverbs 17:22.)

Keep talking to your soul, Like David in the Psalms, fill it with words of life!
