Sunday Reflections


He gives snow like wool;
he scatters frost like ashes.
He hurls down hail like crumbs-
who can stand before his cold?
He sends out his word, and melts them;
he makes his wind blow, and the waters flow.
Psalm 147:16-18

I'm ready for springtime. I want to see growth and greenery, days getting longer, and breezes bringing warmth. Spring brings newness, and winter has me feeling old.  But the psalmist reminds me that God is the author of both.  With his creative power, he can freeze a stream and melt it.  He can send a gale-force wind, and can knit together a snowflake.
  
Lord, I stand in wonder, awed by your amazing strength and I ask you to work your wonders in me.  Melt my frozen streams of thought and blow powerfully through all that I do and say, Amen

  4. Hi Annette,

    I was just thinking about how the days move so seamlessly from season to season. Parts of the country are inundated with snow and ice storms. The snow has melted here but the temperature is still cold.

    I like these words you share, "Lord, I stand in wonder, awed by your amazing strength and I ask you to work your wonders in me. Melt my frozen streams of thought and blow powerfully through all that I do and say, Amen"

    Blessings and peace.
