12-26-14 Treasures of the Snow

My order of Christmas snow arrived a day late, but still makes it a white Christmas in my book. Christmas just seems to need snow.  They tell me that here in New Mexico, it won’t last long.  So I took a picture. 

God says that there are treasures in snow.  Certainly, it pictures purity, “white as snow.” It’s great for skiers, snowboarders and husbands that love to throw snowballs at their wives (which is a tradition in my household – although she has ruled it illegal to throw snowballs in the house/apartment).  Another treasure of snow is that it needs to build up in the mountains to supply water for the lowlands through the summer months.

How does this help me in days of trouble?  Just the reminder that my sins have been washed away helps me through a difficult time.  Just the idea that I am saved and that, like snow, this life is only temporary encourages me to keep on keeping on.

Hail, snow, and ice make it difficult for the enemy to attack. Thus, God can use it to protect me from problems. Instead of fussing about what a hassle snow is, I can rejoice in it!

“Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail, Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war?” Job 38:22-23.
