MY DEFINITION OF A SOUL RESET is a hard stop of chronic busyness; a deep look inward and an intentional look to God; and a new, more holistic journey forward that more closely resembles an abundant life into which Jesus calls his disciples. A soul reset is the pouring out of one’s self to God. It means laying yourself at the altar and earnestly seeking God’s face. It means a season of fervent praying and fasting. It includes finding new and meaningful ways to connect with Jesus, the lover of our souls.
