Hey Jordan, Well, the snow has come. And lots of it. Lots and lots of it. It's not so bad as I thought it would be. Although our ice skating is ruined, the snow is actually very beautiful. It simplifies our world by making it one color, a color that reflects our hearts when we are washed by the blood of Jesus. As I was walking back from taking some pictures of Jacob's buck, I thought of two morals that can be taken from this snowfall. First, every snowflake has its purpose. If a certain snowflake hadn't been there, the snowfall wouldn't have been complete. The same is with us. We are a part of God's kingdom. Without us, His kingdom cannot be complete. We are a part of the body. Without one of us, how can the body be complete? Without a hand, how can a body be complete? I Corinthians 12:12-31 comes to mind. (Sorry, it is a little too long to type out.) Secondly, I wonder at how someone could think that this snow had come by chance. "Billions of years, and there was the snowflake." or "There was a big bang, and then there was snow." When I walk through that snow, I can only see the marvelous hand of a divine Creator. Throughout my entire life, God has shown me hundreds of reasons that He is there. I've never found a reason that showed me that He is not there. I look at the world around me and see God's glory. I know that there are people out there that see the world around them, they see the glory so plain. Yet they do not know why it's there. They do not know who created it all. And I aim to tell them. I aim to be God's workman to show them the light. I aim to be a part of God's kingdom. If God can direct a snowflake in a snowstorm, He can direct my life.
Your awed little brother,
