The Winter of Our Souls

Winter is nearly over. Nature already shows signs of approaching spring and we anxiously await the hoped for new growth. No matter how long or dreary winter may seem, we always know that spring will arrive, eventually.

But what about the winters of our souls? What about those times we feel distant from God and disconnected spiritually? How do we create spring in our souls?

One thing that helps me to reconnect with God is long walks outdoors. The nature trails nearby remind me of the majesty and beauty of His creation and allow me to bask in His presence.

What about you? How do you encourage new spiritual growth during the winter of your soul?

After raising a family and then teaching for over 20 years, I retired from full-time work. Now I spend time with family, tap dance, take long walks in nature, read, and write. I have published two stories in Chicken Soup for the Soul books and over a dozen devotions. My current goal is to publish a book of meditations over the gospels and to share my devotional writing on my blog. I hope you enjoy and are inspired.
