Life is made up of seasons and the truth is, it’s not always springtime for your soul. There are seasons when you don’t feel the nearness of God or when prayers seem to float no higher than the ceiling under which you kneel. I have personally experienced several of these seasons over the last few years, and as a "paid Christian" this can be especially distressing. I am tending to the souls of other people and often to the neglect of my own. I have recently done a word study on the soul in the book of Psalms and I'd like to share with you what I found there.
