When I hear from old friends from years past, I am amazed by their stories and their accomplishments. 
However, I marvel at what they have become. I marvel at their transformations. Somewhere along life’s highways we seem to start paying attention to what really matters.
We start paying close attention to the condition of our souls, instead of our finances. When we start nurturing our soul then we start becoming the creation God intended us to become.
Just think, God, the Ultimate Creator, the Righteous Judge, and the Everlasting Redeemer, is waiting patiently on our complete dependence and trust in Him. Prayer, and confession of our sins actually have the power to rewire the brain in a way that can make us less self-referential and more aware of how God sees us as His creation of a soul made in His likeness.
Dallas Willard says, “What is running your life at any moment is your soul. Not external circumstances, not your thoughts, not your intentions, not even your feelings, but your soul. The soul is the life center of being.”
You’re a soul made by God, made for God, and made to need God, which means you were not made to be self-sufficient.
Increase your faith
Invest your life
Invite your world
