Karen Sperl, the author of Spirit Superfood: 37 Days of Biblical Wisdom Broken Down and Easy to Understand – Like a Daily Superfood Smoothie for your Spirit, recently appeared on America Tonight with Kate Delaney in an episode filled with faith, encouragement, and revelation. Karen is a “woman after God’s heart and a powerful prophetic voice.” In the radio program, she shares with her host Kate about her journey to publishing the book and how it helped in the manifestation of her first publication.
The First Moment of Divine Inspiration
Karen faithfully attributes the book’s content to her time spent with God and listening to His voice. However, it’s very beginnings could be said to have taken place after she had “given her heart to Jesus.”
She was at a Christian gathering, and the main topic was learning how to hear God’s voice. During that time, a couple of people began to prophesy over her, saying that she was going to write a book. It was a moment of divine inspiration, with one of them specifically declaring her book was going to be a devotional.
This was when the proverbial seed was planted, and Karen latched on to it as truth. At the same time, however, it did not mean that she was going to set about writing the book at that very moment. One of the other things that made Karen’s relationship with God so important was this was all happening in the midst of a rough patch in her life.
She reached out to God for answers and He responded that He was taking her “on a journey to the Promised Land.” She realized that the difficult times in her life served as her spiritual wilderness, not unlike the wilderness that the Hebrews wandered through in the Old Testament.
This was around six years ago, and the journey through it all was certainly challenging for Karen. There was much inner healing that God did in her life. But as a source of spiritual strength, she stood, believing that He will be faithful to her.
Inside Spirit Superfood
Spirit Superfood is a 37-day devotional, which takes a rather unique break from the conventional 30-day or 40-day structure that devotionals tend to be.
Like any good devotional, each day is dedicated to feeding a reader’s spirit with the Word of God. It’s packed with scripture, imagery and poetic wisdom gained from seeking God’s Presence. Karen uses imagery in her writing as it emulates Jesus’ example with the parables. After all, these same parables demonstrate the effectiveness of using word pictures for solidifying spiritual truths.
Karen dug deep into Scripture for each day in Spirit Superfood, drawing heavily in the well of His love, to continue the inner healing effect it has had in her life.
By doing so, she hopes the book provides encouragement and healing, much like her spiritual journey. It takes the difficult-to-understand scripture in the Bible and presents it in a way that’s easy to grasp and understand.
Discovering One’s Own Promised Land
Perhaps one of the most surprising discoveries she reveals is that like her, everyone has their own Promised Land, just as everyone has their own spiritual wilderness.
The journey has led her to personal revelations of the Bible’s most controversial and firebrand verses, serving them in ways that nurtures, heals and reveals Jesus. It’s her hope that her inspired words, will reveal and unlock what the reader’s heart would need.
