Spiritual Winter

Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus or Lord.

His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.

Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.

2 Peter 1:2-4

I know that I have not been writing as much lately. I think that I am in a “season”. I may even go as far as to say that it’s a spiritual Winter. There is a bitter nip in the air from time to time that causes discomfort and requires readjustment or extra layers. Tears freeze and cheeks chap. God is splitting logs…the left over dead wood from the last season…and has used that dead stuff to kindle a fresh flame. During this time, you snuggle up next to the fire and eat s’mores while enjoying warmth of a fleece blanket…wrapped in the Word. Getting full and fat. When you look out the window at the glowing, white wonder of a fresh powdery snow- there is a freshness. Something new on the horizon. With the knowledge that Spring follows Winter and so do vibrant blooms- I am going to enjoy this time. Things are not dead, they are just quietly rejuvenating.
