Refreshment of the Soul

Its difficult to find ways to refresh the weary soul when the things that used to rejuvenate you are no longer a viable option. Not only do those things tire you out, but they are reminders of what has been taken from you.

In my battle, I found peace and quiet when swallowed up in the beauty of nature. God’s masterpieces soothed and quieted the fighting of my soul. I found peace in the silence, with nothing but His music to hear and the creations of His beautiful mind to be observed.

I share with you some of the beauty I’ve discovered over the years.

“The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters. He restores my soul; He guides me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You have anointed my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever” (Ps 23).
