Many people are walking around with broken spirits because they have been feeding the wrong stuff to their minds. Many people feed themselves negativity on a daily basis. Some people feed themselves with anxiety, stress, pain, rejection and all kinds of negative emotions. Your spirit is an integral part of your being, and once it is broken, you are likely to stay stuck for a very long time. Think about it; if a car with four tyres has one flat tyre, how far can it go until that tyre is fixed? Or if you put petrol in a diesel engine, what kind of combustion reaction is likely to occur? Aren’t you damaging the engine of the car? The same applies to your spirit.
Your spirit is your engine hence it needs to be properly serviced, and fed the right kind of stuff. Instead of dwelling on the negativity all around you, wrap yourself in the assurance God’s word provides. Instead of feeding yourself with thoughts of desperation or shady deals to succeed, seek knowledge in how to be successful without having to look over your shoulder everyday. Feed your spirit with the right kind of knowledge; feed yourself with the word of God that reassures us of God’s word, and constantly reminds us not to be afraid.
