Spiritual Thoughts from Sister Andrea Dumont
Sister Andrea Dumont writes for the Spiritual Thoughts column of the Thompson Citizen newspaper. This is her December 4 column.
For many, the autumn of life is upon them. As we grow older, our body weakens — our eyesight grows dim, our hearing fades, our legs and other body parts don’t function the way they did when we were younger. The good news is that as our body grows weak, our spirit grows stronger. Due to your bodily weakness, you depend on God more, and His strength is made visible in you.
You talk to Him more then you used to. He listens and surrounds you with His love. Respond to His love with an openness to receive Him and the many gifts of the Spirit that He wants to bestow on you. Believe more strongly in God’s word. Cling to the teachings of Jesus. Let your spirit be nourished and grow stronger.
