Soul Summons

Book of Psalms excerptThe soul must be summonsed. The soul must be sought; it must be stalked.

The Psalmists time and again call forth the soul, wakening it, stirring it, addressing it.

“Why are you cast down, O my soul…” (Psalm 42:5)

“Why are you cast down, O my soul…” (Psalm 43:5)

“For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence…” (Psalm 62:5)

“Bless the Lord, O my soul…” (Psalm 103:1)

“Bless the Lord, O my soul!” (Psalm 104:1)

“Return, O my soul, to your rest…” (Psalm 116:7)

“Praise the Lord, O my soul!” (Psalm 146:1)

The soul does not simply show up, especially in our busyness. It must be searched out. It must be beckoned. It must be enlisted.

Summons your soul today!
