Illuminating Properties of Snow

Snow is fascinating! It doesn’t matter if the ground is unlevel, or if there’s trash lying around. A heavy snow quickly blankets everything and makes it clean and new. In the evening snowflakes keep the reflected light in the air so it isn’t as dark. Everything feels safer, illuminated. The morning after a big snow is filled with silence. Momentary peace in a chaotic world. Everything is on pause like it’s waiting for something.

For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from him. (Psalm 62:5)

The entire world could use one big permanent blanket of cleansing snow about now. When the pandemic first shut down the world as we know it, there was that same anticipatory quiet.

And the effect of righteousness will be peace, and the result of righteousness, quietness and trust forever. (Isaiah 32:17)

It doesn’t matter how strange or tough it becomes out there in the world. Faith in the Lord will quiet the fears of your soul.

He says, "Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth." (Psalm 46:10)

Be encouraged to endure tough times blanketed in God’s peace, so that those around you may watch and wonder where you get that amazing quality. Be aware in your faith that God is active in your life and is the provider of everything good in it. Be resolute in sharing what you have in Christ. This is your year to reflect the light of Christ in our dark world!

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. (Romans 15:13)

“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead, they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.” (Matthew 5:14-15)
