2c- This picture got me to thinking the way almost everything from C.S Lewis does. And it struck me how many times it's not the treads that are worn but our souls. Our souls grow weary & in many ways they get neglected more than anything because it feels like it's too much to overcome.
When this happens it is as if the very Spark in our beings has gone twilit or even dark....it can be the hardest mountain to climb.
Funny thing about mountains,..the farther up you go, the less baggage (self) you can carry, you have to start laying things down to move up & forward.
Encouragement: Take Hope, I've seen hearts refreshed in minutes as if the weariness had vanished. First we must turn the roots of our souls to fresh & living water & we can be like the tress of the desert never knowing wilt, because our roots run deep.
"For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters that spreads out its roots by the river; and it shall not see and fear when heat comes; but its leaf shall be green. It shall not be anxious and full of care in the year of drought, nor shall it cease yielding fruit." Jeremiah
"For I the Lord will [fully] satisfy the weary soul, and I will replenish every languishing and sorrowful person." - Jeremiah
Challenge: My challenge for you this week is... for you to not neglect your soul....though it has one body it is eternal, the body is not.
