Heavenly Storehouses of Snow

I don't know, but God might be a little short on the snow right now since so much of it spilled in this area over the last two weeks!  But, He is God and He can make more, right? And they say it will be coming again on Tuesday, but nothing like what we just experienced.

I walked around our house today looking for damage along the roof line. As I trudged around the back yard I tried to step in the footprints left by the teen boys who were out there playing yesterday. Not only were their footsteps farther apart than mine, but when I didn't step exactly in the center of each, my foot sank about another six inches deeper.  Once I lost my balance and was hip-deep in snow.  Truly amazing.

I've been thinking about that line in Job about the storehouses of snow. What a beautiful image of how God has all weather at His fingertips. And the same God who can summon the hurricane winds and the blizzards of snow cares about every sparrow that falls and every hair on a person's head. And nothing gives Him more pleasure than to love us. What a humbling thought.

Here's the scripture:

Job 37:5-7
5 God's voice thunders in marvelous ways; 
he does great things beyond our understanding. 
6 He says to the snow, 'Fall on the earth,' 
and to the rain shower, 'Be a mighty downpour.' 
7 So that all men he has made may know his work, 
he stops every man from his labor.   

Boy, he sure stopped every man from his labor this past week (except the snow plow drivers, emergency workers and electric linemen) with the snow we had. And why? So that we might all know HIS work.

Please enjoy this awesome visual to go along with Chris Tomlin's song, Indescribable.

Oh I'm so sorry you took down your post for Red! We can Still link to you through comments if your a bit late! The Link has been up for 2 weeks and the entries closed on the 12th, last night...A new Challenge will begin again tonight so come give it a look to see if you want to play along...if you do, go ahead and sign up and then just have your photos ready to go by the 27th...We're not formal so I thought 2 weeks was long enough for people to have time to say they wanted to play.

I do love this song. It's a good reminder of God's awesome yet gentle power. It's a great song to have "stuck" in my head!
