Soul Keeping, Paperback, English
Regular price $18
Anxiety. Depression. Fear. Loneliness. These are all symptoms of a soul that has lost touch with its source of life. Like a flower snipped from the vine, the soul that is not turned toward God can only wither away.
In Soul Keeping, best-selling author John Ortberg sheds light on the most overlooked, underrated, and least-understood part of your being. With a workable and relevant approach, he shows how living the "with God" life isn't just a good idea - it's the only way to find lasting peace and satisfaction.
When we are preoccupied with unhealthy habits, Ortberg says, when we are not centered in God, our soul cries out in distress. When you choose to live a shallow life, one that only skims the surface of spirituality, your soul shrivels from neglect.
Jesus calls us to a deep life, one that goes beyond our everyday interests and desires. A rested, well-cared-for soul has the capacity to empathize and understand profoundly, to ask questions and not simply go through the motions of faith. It holds our connection to eternity and can help us see past the petty concerns of the present. It has access to the kind of peace, gratitude, freedom, and blessing that comes only from a heavenly well-spring.
Your soul is waiting. It longs to return to its true resting place, its only resting place - God. It's time to go home.
