We’ve all had weeks where we felt beat up, broken, and bloody. Weeks where our soul is limping into church on Sunday, where our faith is badly shaken, and we feel unable to be the leaders, the contributors, and the passionate women of God we were created to be. I don’t want to lie to you all, I’ve had these weeks too.
But there is a way to make it all well with your soul. To stand in the storm. To be found standing after the battle. To have the emotional equity to get through even the toughest of days.

Do I have a healthy soul?
You know you have a healthy soul, when you change your environment, and your environment does not change you.
“My prayer for you is that you never acclimate to the dysfunction around you.”
“Ah! I wish I could listen to your negativity, unfortunately, God says—I belong!”
“Control the parts of your environment that you can.”
You know you have a healthy soul, when you give the benefit of the doubt, to God.
“Unhealthy souls are waiting to get wounded.”
“Beware of good people who say bad things, by the way.”
“Which way do you lean when crisis hits you?”
