In my last post, I wrote about wells. Our wells really refer to our souls, our innermost beings that house our emotions, values and core beliefs. Our souls are the most central part of who we are.
So, we obviously want to fill our wells with good things, Godly things. But what does that really mean?
It means I need to fill my well. Fill my soul. Period. I either fill it with things that make me more aware of the presence of God in my life or I fill it with a lot of things that seem important but only numb my heart to my real purpose and the presence of God. It’s my choice.
Lately I’ve filled my wells with words. I’ve read a lot of books, written some words and I have spent more time reading the only Word that reveals Truth in my life. I’ve spent more time moving my body which fuels my soul and fills my well. Early mornings and cool, fresh air fill my well and center my days. Being present while investing time with the people in my life has filled my well. Dreaming, setting goals and thinking about future plans is also a part of filling my well.
So filling your well is imperative to spiritual and personal growth. Take some time this week and think about your well. Make a list of the things you prioritize, the things you invest time and attention to. Are you filling your well with good things? Do you even take time in this busy life to invest in yourself?
Go check your well.
