When I sat down to begin this blog, I thought it was going to be about food.
I was wrong.
Pondering the word nourished over the past few months, I found this in my dictionary:
To provide with food or other substances necessary for life and growth; feed.
To foster the development of; promote.
To keep alive; maintain.
Being faithfully nourished is more than food. It’s more than recipes. It encompasses so much more.
In the story of Jesus feeding the 5000, we see his heart. He’s been teaching the people all day long. They are tired. They are hungry. And the disciples want Jesus to send them away. But no. Jesus tells the disciples to feed them.
I love how Jesus cares not only about our spiritual needs–but he cares for our physical needs, too. We are whole people–body, mind, spirit, and soul. Sometimes we forget that each sphere intersects in our lives. There have been times where I’ve taken great care of myself physically–only to wind up impoverished spiritually. There have been times when I’ve been so engrossed spiritually that I haven’t taken care of myself physically.
Faithfully Nourished is really about connecting the body, soul, mind, and spirit and creating a home where life and growth flourish!
