Another Lesson

“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth His handywork.” These were the words that came to mind as I looked out the window this morning. The earth so wonderfully covered in a blanket of white frost was such a reminder to me of God’s faithfulness.

He has promised that the seasons will continue as long as the earth remains and if I can see this promise continually being carried out, my heart than asks why can’t I so readily believe all the other promises I read in the Bible. Why do I sometimes doubt that He is a faithful God ready to help in times of trouble? And why do I not think that His promise is true when He calls us to cast all our cares upon Him for He careth for us? Is He not a God who knows all our sorrows, burdens, trials, and temptations? Why do we so foolishly think we need to carry this weight ourselves?

And so my heart melts as again I see the frost making the brown, dirty earth look so white and pure. Just one glimpse of God’s goodness has again covered the dirt that so often seems to cover my heart and now once again as the, ‘heavens declare the glory of God’ my mouth is full of this same expression as I have been taught a lesson from the frost.


  1. Great is Thy faithfulness...

    He promises that as long as earth endures, there will be summer and winter, springtime and harvest.

    Absolutely love the photo... did you take that yourselves?

  2. Anne,
    Yes I took that picture...its in our back yard. In the summer that water is not there but in the winter we put a cap on the drain and they have a wonderful skating rink...many people from the church like to skate on it as well.
