snowflakes.

Humanity has accomplished some amazing feats.

We can think we’re pretty amazing. And really, we are.

But keep perspective. Because we are also very fragile.

Yes, we are a small fish in a big universe pond. We don’t always think about our world being suspended on nothing in a big black space. We can get pretty uppity about some things, can’t we?

I’m glad God didn’t create us to always be thinking about how small we are in relationship to the universe or I am quite sure we would be very anxious and fearful.

But it’s always good to be reminded from time to time.

Sometimes, we stop and get breathless at creation. It’s supposed to work that way. It’s really God’s way of tapping us on the shoulder.

When life’s not going so good, an unexpected treasure can put things into perspective.

A local photographer took the picture below. Amazing. Absolutely amazing.

Study it. See it’s fine detail? Design?

If God is that involved in just snowflake, you better believe his involved with you, no matter how distant you might feel from him.

Even a fragile snowflake has been carefully designed. God could have not given it that much attention.

But he did. Why?

Because when we look at creation, we see God.

All around us are wonderful expressions of God’s presence. We cannot possibly understand all of the “whys” of life.

We are too small.

Will you trust? You don’t have to. But it is so much better when you do.

deliver us from evil.

Evil exists in a broken world.

Accidents happen.

People get sick.

Tires go flat.

Houses catch on fire.

We relish in the good – and so we should.

But sometimes, evil can shadow the good and we forget the good is there.

There is only one who can redeem the atrocities in our lives. God.      hopehely-snowflake_l

The Bible tells us he is compassionate and merciful. His love is so great that he died for the world because evil kept him at a distance.

Does his love stop there? No. It continues on and on and on.

And often, God shows he is with us when he surprises us with comfort when snowflakes fall gently upon the earth.

All around us is God’s presence.

Be comforted.
