Every snowflake is truly unique

Have you ever looked at snow lying on the ground and think how fantastic our God truly is? I know this is a strange question in our Sunshine State. However, I want to point out to you just how great our God truly is.

Snow reflects almost 90 percent of the rays of the sun. As a result, the snow remains cooler, which results in a much slower melting rate for every snowflake. The reason this is important, is that much of the needed water is stored in the snow for future use. The snow would gradually melt which keeps flooding to a minimum, which keeps the soil moist and making the ground ready for spring planting. Basically, God designed snow to hold water until it is needed to be used.

Snow protects the earth from erosion that would happen if all of it melted at once, and it also acts as an insulating blanket for plants and creatures that live underneath the snow which shields them from the winter chill.

Snow that is falling to the ground actually cleans the air, because every flake of snow captures particles and dust as it crystallizes and passes through the air. This is why the air smells so much crisp and cleaner after a snowstorm.

The whiteness of snow is a picture witness of how God cleanse our sin by his precious blood that was shed for more than two thousand years ago. Without the shedding of blood, there would be no remission of our sin. David asked God in Psalm 51:7, “Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.”

The truth is, we are all fallen creatures like the dust particles in the air, and we are in need of cleansing by the powerful and efficacious blood of the Lamb, Jesus Christ. Put your trust in him today, he really cares for you, even more than he does for a simple snowflake.
