IF THE ONLY PRAYER YOU SAID IN YOUR LIFE WAS "THANK YOU", THAT WOULD SUFFICE. ~Meister Eckhart

Soul Training 101

Your life has been given to you mainly for the purpose of training your soul. This life we live is not so much for the body as for the soul. We often choose the way of life that best suits the body, not the way that best suits the soul. God wants you to choose what suits the soul as well as the body. Accept this belief and a wonderful molding of character is the result. Reject it and God's purpose for your life is frustrated, and your spiritual progress is delayed. Your soul is being trained by the good you choose. Thus the purpose of your life is being accomplished. -Bill W

Today I will try to follow the path that will allow my soul to grow. I will try the path, whether it is uncomfortable or painful, accepting the fact that without growth my soul gets restless.

I love this post.

This is exactly where Ive been at. Trying to work through everything thats going on by not reacting, and trying to do the next right thing.

It's usually never comfortable, but I have learned great lessons in it..its about changing me and though I may not like it at the time, at the end of the day, I feel much better about it!
