Fresh, new snow

I went outside yesterday to throw some old apples out in the field.  When I came in and got busy I was admiring  out the window, the fresh, new snow that had fallen all over the ground yesterday.  We already had snow, so this was a fresh, new layer.  It reminded me of the verse:

Isaiah 1:18 (King James Version)

18Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

But it also reminded me that each layer of dirty, trotted snow is covered and you can't see what was there before.  That's a lot like us too, as Christians.  We sin, but if we ask for forgiveness, GOD is faithful and just to cleanse us of all unrighteousness and forgive us our sins.  (1 John 1:9)

HIS love is unfailing.  HIS forgiveness is unfailing.  I encourage you to seek HIS face today. You can be white as a fresh, new layer of snow.  All that old snow is covered up and no one sees it, not even GOD himself, because HE chooses not to when we ask for forgiveness and seek HIM.  What a wonderful and beautiful promise...just like the picture out my window of fresh snow!

Blessings until next time!
