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?
