Take time to ponder the snow and how it may bring a clearer understanding of who Jesus Christ is to you. Allow this simple ‘object lesson’ to be one that you store away in your heart so that you can be reminded, every time it snows, of the grace and mercy of God, the power in the blood of Christ and the absolute perfection of our Savior!
The pain is great, the all-consuming fear, hurt, worry is very real and very fluid. It moves in and out, like a dense fog, with the wind and is eager to meet us immediately upon waking every morning.
We live with a defeatist attitude and succumb to the lie of the enemy that promises trouble around every corner. We forget that we belong to the Creator of the Universe and that we are His children & He has made amazing promises to us about how to live in victory.
Sometimes we walk through what seems to be a season of trials and struggles… and it seems to stretch on and on much like a cold dark winter. But rather than fixate on the struggles, my husband and I like to ponder what God is up to.
If God cares about my washing machine, consider how much more He must care about things that are actually important in my life… health, welfare, family, children, relationships, marriage, etc.
My distractedness led me to think about just how insignificant I really am. My life on this earth is similar to the lifespan of a meteor shooting across the sky. I was reminded how easy it is to miss the ‘forest for the trees’ … (translated miss the Heavens for the meteors).
We all have scars. We all have stories to tell. In fact, we all have circumstances that God has allowed in our lives to refine us and draw us closer to Him. Those who testify to how the Lord is working in their lives are showing that they place greater value on eternity than on today.
