It’s that time of year when the snow in Minnesota can really be quite dirty, messy and annoying. Aahh…but then we get a fresh snowfall of several inches, like this weekend. And it really is about one of the most beautiful sights to see the crisp, clean, white snow blanketing the trees and the ground. It covers all of the dirty mess so well, you’d never know it was even there in the first place. And it’s really that same way with our lives. There are times when our life can become messy, dirty, and even annoying…with complaining…or jealousy…or anger…or lying…or petty behavior…or any number of (let’s call them what they are) sins. But God is there to blanket us with a fresh snowfall of His grace…it’s what saved us in the first place(Ephesians 2:8), and it’s what keeps cleansing us and making our lives snow white over and over again. And the awesome part of all of this? It’s the fact that we don’t have to “hope,” like we do for a Minnesota snowfall to cover up all the mess. We can “know”…it’s a settled fact…that no matter how messy your life has become, He will make your life as white as snow…simply yours for the asking! So what are you waiting for?
Isaiah 1:18 NLT ~ Come now, let’s settle this,” says the Lord. Though your sins are like scarlet, I will make them as white as snow. Though they are red like crimson, I will make them as white as wool.
