He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
The word picture behind "soul" is "something sharp to open life".
When a baby is born everyone awaits that first sharp breath (cry) to confirm the opening of life.
There are times in life we forget that our first breath and indeed every breath that follows is a gift from God.
He breathes into us the breath of life so that we can fulfill our unique God given purpose in the earth.
Stop for one moment and give thanks for your latest breath of life.
