Last week we were blessed with a foot of snow. North Dakota storms usually are accompanied by strong winds, but this particular storm was void any wind, leaving a heavy white blanket everywhere.
We have a feedlot on the ranch.
I often bring breakfast to the lunchroom at our shop, for the crew. This particular morning I stayed to help open gates for one son, so he could clean the snow from the pens. I was amazed by the beauty and the whiteness that covered the brown land.
Isn’t this exactly what God has done for each one of us, who believes and calls upon His name? Isaiah 1:18
Takes our sins away and washes us white as snow. Psalms 51:7
As the tractor made one pass through the cattle pens the snow became muddy and stained.
I couldn’t help but think of how often I sin, muddying my white garment. The Bible says “Come now and let us reason together, though your sins are scarlet, they shall be white as snow. God has offered a cleansing to His people, (all who believe and put their trust in). It is a matter of choosing to obey or refuse and rebel.
The way to overcome sin is to continue to seek the One, Who overcame all sin. Choose to obey.
Until next time, Pam
