Keeping in line with my routine, I was driving on the back road, and then onto the 2 lane road. As I was glancing around me, all of a sudden I felt as if I had been lifted out of my life and set down into this winter wonderland. The beauty before my eyes was truly something to behold. As I continued to drive, there were points where the trees reached across the expanse of the road and met together above me. I truly became engrossed in this majestic picture. I was part of something much bigger than me.
I started to chat with God … to sing His praises, to pray, and to simply fellowship with my Creator. I felt so in awe of Him. I became this small atom of a person in His presence. I realized at that exact moment the vastness of His greatness which is so beyond my human comprehension. The more I pondered this, the smaller I became until I was nothing. This is what we should always remember … we are nothing compared to Him.
Stop for a moment and picture a tree bare of leaves but covered on every branch by snow. Then try to reason in your finite mind how many snowflakes it must have taken to cover that tree. Driving into work this morning … looking at the farmland, the homes, the bushes, the trees, and the roadways dusted with this white powder, I could not even begin to come up with a number for the amount of snowflakes it took to make this covering. Then remember that each snowflake that falls from the sky is different.
In studying about snowflakes it says it is extremely unlikely that two complex flakes will ever look alike. It is so extremely unlikely, in fact, that if you were to look at every snowflake (which is humanly impossible) you would never find a duplicate. God’s creativity is so above ours. He has the intelligence to come up with as many patterns as needed to make every snowflake different. If it were reliant upon us to do the same, we could never cover the branch of a tree.
Yet, taking all of this into consideration, we have the audacity to doubt He can care for us … He can provide for us … He can heal us … He can deliver us … He can forgive us … He can renew our minds … He can change us from the inside out! We question whether He is. I have no doubt of my God’s existence. I just wonder how anyone can question His being.
No matter what you are going through today, please know that God is more than enough to provide for you. He can take you from the valley and put you back on the mountaintop. Whatever you are dealing with … whatever you are suffering from … whatever is holding you back, give it to Him today. He loves you exactly where you are. He wants you to come to Him as you are. You are worthy in His eyes to be loved no matter what!!!! Let Him love you today!
