Care for a wounded soul

TRIAGE in caring for a wounded or ill person is the first and critical step. The care giver assigns degrees of urgency to the wound or illness.  The loss of blood often is the obvious or presenting issue.  it is well known that human life is in the blood coursing through our bodies. To bleed out means that there is a major artery or vein that has been severed and if this lose of life is not stopped at once the patient will likely die. 

Gods original design for life with Him was ended by the SIN of Adam and Eve and ultimately by all mankind. We need transformation from sin polluted blood to that of the Blood of Jesus. For victory over sin and the freedom of the sinner God had no other means or thought than the BLOOD OF CHRIST. Jesus shed his blood for us as the only sacrifice and source for our struggling wounded soul. Our heart will never rest nor will we find salvation and freedom until we decide to surrender to Jesus and receive the salvation that is ours through His death on the cross, the shedding of His blood on our behalf and his victorious resurrection.

What ever you are facing right now take the time and effort to fully learn the blessing that is yours in Jesus through His shed blood. Through faith, begin to learn and give up our self centeredness, as we press into the fullness of life as followers of Jesus. We will find the soul healing we so long for when we surrender our lives wholly to God in prayer and faith. As the great hymn of the past years "There is power in the blood wonder working power in the precious blood of the Lamb"

Much of the thoughts and truths in this blog come from the Bible and the writings of Andrew Murray in his book "The Power of theBlood of Jesus".  It would be a great place to start your journey of faith, understanding, healing and rescue.

bibical steps to well being

In the apostle Paul's letter to the people of Corinth he painted a picture of a life lived well.

The first brush stroke is to Listen! 

Listen to His voice; in the summer wind, in the morning birds song, in the cry of a baby and in the Words of the Psalms.

The next color applied to the canvas of life, is to Stand Tall in the heart of Faith.

To Stand Tall, is a picture of being courageous and strong in our faith despite the darkness of life.

Let Love Prevail !

Love is of God, through God and by God. It is miraculous how conflict melts away when we act and speak from a heart of love. The power to be that person and do life that way is in, by and from the Holy Spirit.

Life is a master piece when we be and live in the creation of each day, "To day is the day that the Lord has made let me rejoice and be glad in it."

Fallow Ground

 In Chapter 10 of the book of  Hosea we are called to breakup, plow, make ready our fallow ground. Our fallow ground is good soil that has great potential but sits dry hard and unfruitful.

The story behind the condition of our fallow ground is rooted in the choice we have made. we have plowed wickedness, reaped injustice and eaten the fruit of our lies.  We have trusted in our wants, demands and desires instead of seeing the Lord's rain of righteousness.

 Proverbs 27:12 tells us that when the prudent sees danger they take refuge. The selfish simple and naïve continue down the path of consequences. 

Our prayer is for your church, a couple you know or a friend in need, that they will see the danger, evil or destruction ahead and have the courage to take action and reach out for the hand of the Rescuer  before they suffer the pain at the end of the path.

( thanks to Andy Stanley and his Baggage Series for helping me see the connection between the soil of our choices and the warning of the path we maybe on.)

Emotional Pain!

EVEN IN LAUGHTER THE HEART MAY BE IN PAIN, Pro 14:13

The fog of emotional pain hides the reality of mercy and forgiveness. It steals the balm of joy and peace.

It Is the Breath of God that lifts the fog of pain from our hearts.  Once we can see the path of hope that leads to healing,  we can endure and thrive at the same time. 

Mercy received and forgiveness granted is great medicine to start the process down the path healing.   This is an experience that is not to be wasted.

it is the presence of another on this journey that can help us to discover the joy and peace at the end of the road.

Soul care ministry desires to be your companion. Please reach out as there is hope at the end of the road.

a new beginning

How is your "WANT TO?"

In John 5:6 Jesus asked the man infirmed for thirty-eight years "Do you WANT TO be made well?" This question is best answered with assent and action blended together into a powerful concoction. A real and raw picture of a changed want to is " The Twelve Steps of AA."  The Twelve Step  journey is woven together with verbs of admitting , believing, deciding, turning, searching. and doing. These are all want to words.  Even when we are fully aware that we need spiritual, emotional and physical care we lay on our mats, failing to take that first WANT TO action.

Soul Care is just an email or phone call away.  Let us be the catalyst to renew your WANT TO. Reach out now, thirty-eight years is a long time to be stuck.
