Throughout life we face challenges that test our resolve. Sometimes our soul and spirit needs a little jump start to power through the low points in our life. Rejuvenation and restoration of our soul and our spirit helps us face challenges and make adjustments which illuminates our actions on the outside. If we are downtrodden and have not nourished our inner self with the right knowledge, we will radiate negativity and flounder through life in misery. If we accept darkness and gloom through the window of our soul, we can expect failure and negativity. Our soul is the window to our existence, if we allow the light to shine in through the power of meditation, prayer, and faith we can expect to function at an optimum level. Our spirit is the part of us which drives us to triumph and to carry on in spite of difficult circumstances. If our spirit is broken, our desire to carry on is deeply affected. If we allow meditation, prayer, and faith to nourish our spirit, we can function at an optimum level. Our soul and our spirit should function in unison to receive nourishment and replenishment in conjunction with Gods word in order for us to flourish. The benefits of meditation, prayer, and faith will be realized by embracing God and understanding there is a power in charge greater than ones self.
Let me take a moment to briefly discuss meditation, prayer, and faith. Deeper and more detailed discussion exists on meditation, prayer, and faith, but these are my condensed thoughts from my heart.
Meditation offers us the opportunity to find a quiet space to clear our mind of outside influences and to engage in heartfelt contemplation. Meditation is to ponder deeply in a purposeful manner to bring about resolution or understanding. We can often rejuvenate and restore our soul and spirit with a renewed purpose or a renewed outlook about a particular scenario through meditation. Take a few minutes each day to clear your mind and let the free flowing energy of the universe enter into you. Contemplate balance in life, realize your connection to all things, ponder the possibilities that radiance and goodness can bring, acknowledge problems and let solutions come forth with resolution, feel the divine power of God flowing throughout your body as you inhale and exhale in a methodical manner. Finally, never give up on the idea of meditating. Rejuvenation and restoration of our soul and spirit takes time. Allow time to be your friend until you can come to terms with any circumstances that create anxiety, or any circumstances that need resolution or understanding in your life.
Prayer offers us the opportunity to send forth a devout request to God. The power of prayer cannot be underestimated. Prayer is a personal relationship with God for each of us. The unseen energy of prayer sent forth to God in the name of Jesus Christ can bring forth miraculous results, comfort, healing, understanding, and a strong sense of connectivity to God. If we are strolling in companionship with God and learning the word of God, we will begin praying in concurrence to the will of God, then we will begin to see our prayers being answered. Rejuvenation and restoration begins and ends with prayer. Embrace prayer, pray often, be open and honest when praying, be patient and let God work his wonders. Give prayer a chance and the changes within yourself and others will be quite amazing. People will begin to notice something is quite different about you. That something is the rejuvenation and restoration of your soul and spirit radiating to the outside.
Faith offers us the opportunity to have unwavering confidence and trust in something greater than ourself. Faith has the power to bring forth something we cannot physically prove but something we spiritually believe can happen. Faith is the cornerstone to success in life. If we have faith in all we strive for, our chance for success increases substantially vs no faith. Our unwavering faith in God sets in motion a spiritual energy that can propel us to many successes in life. A strong commitment to faith will rejuvenate and restore our soul and spirit. Always allow faith to be your friend, never give up. A strong effort to fortify our faith keeps us moving forward during our rejuvenation and reconstruction process.
Life is always about choices, the choices we make determines our success and happiness in life. It is impossible to always make the right choice, sometimes we make several bad choices before we are awakened to the fact we are on a downward spiral of self destruction. The saving grace is when we realize we must rejuvenate and restore our soul and our spirit in order to function as an honorable, responsible, and productive person. We are always under construction, life is a journey, never give up on life in spite of difficult circumstances. Embrace life and its challenges, put forth your best effort, and take time to meditate, pray, and have faith. Always wishing you the best.
