Devotions based on Mark Buchanan’s book, Spiritual Rhythm
The winter season of our souls calls us to some good work – praying, pruning, waiting; and it also gives us good gifts. It gives us the opportunity in reimaging our lives. That doesn’t mean we indulge in some fantasy of escape but rather we see our lives in their truest light. We see them for that they really are and know what really matters and what doesn’t. Maybe the best gift of winter is that it makes us heavenly minded. It breaks our addiction to this worldliness and helps us to anticipate the things that are unseen. We may begin to see that our trials are “light and momentary”. We are not made for this world. I think we will find that the winter season of our soul is not just something to endure but is a season when we are fully alive and come closest to Him.
