“The only permanent thing is the soul, and what has happened to it.”
I love this quote! The soul, our true essence, the intimate voice in our heads that we communicate with in our self-talk, in our discussion about how we are going to move forward in our life, that is what persists beyond this life.
The Bible calls it our heart or spirit, it is where God dwells if you receive Him into your life and heart. It is your soul that feels deeply and is affected by wounds and pain of this life. The soul is what Solomon, the wise, tells his readers to “guard above all else.” (Proverbs 4:23)
