Please, NO SNOW… Thank you LORD for the Snow!

If you are scratching your head at the title of this post, don’t let it bother you. Just let me explain.  I am ready for Spring!  I am not alone in this sentiment by a long-shot. Just a month ago, my father began getting his boat and fishing gear ready, bringing up discussions on tactics and when/where to begin the hunt for fish, only to see a couple bouts of icy and cold weather roll in.  Then, as things begin to look like Spring (daffodils springing out), forecasts come from every direction – big winter weather event.

Sure enough, Wednesday afternoon, the medium-heavy rain transitioned to sleet, then to snow (we saw an accumulation of ½ – ¼  inch of ice plus 6-8 inches of snow at our house in Clinton). To be honest, I prayed that the forecast was wrong. I prayed for warmer weather. But God…

This morning, as I arose and peeked outside to see pristine, bright white reflection of the sun – an overwhelming feeling came on – a comforting assurance that both scripture and hymn remind us of…

Come now, let us reason together, says the LORD:
though your sins are like scarlet,
they shall be as white as snow;
thought they are red like crimson,
they shall become like wool.
Isaiah 1:18

Whiter than snow, yes, whiter than snow.
Now wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
(Whiter Than Snow, Words by James Nicholson, Music by William Fischer)

Are your sins forgiven, are they washed by the Precious Blood of the Lamb, Jesus Christ? Where else by in the power of Salvation can blood turn what is already red with sin, to a white, more pure than snow? 
“And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”  Acts 4:12
