Scarlet Red & Snow White

Tonight I was trying to stay up to work on some writing and cleaning. I accidentally fell asleep for a couple hours and woke up around 3:30am to find that even more snow had fallen. As I looked out at the neighborhood covered in beautiful white fluff, in all its silent and peaceful glory, all I could think was Isaiah 1:18: “Come now, let us reasontogether, says the Lord:
though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow;
though they are red like crimson,
they shall become like wool."

In FCS a couple months ago, we talked about how God's forgiveness covers our ugly sin the same way pretty snow covers everything. Suddenly, even garbage cans are pretty, and do you see Emery's poop in the yard? No! It's covered with the white fluff!
Thank goodness for mercy, grace, and forgiveness that covers even the ugliest sin in our lives.

"Sin had left a crimson stain; He washed it white as snow."


TFTD: Matthew 6:34

Yesterday afternoon at FCS (Fellowship of Christian Students), one of our girls was worried about her future and one of the guys reminded her of this verse:

My heart was warmed because I love to see the kids encourage each other in their faith and with their daily trials... and it was a good reminder for me too!

Take life one day at a time, looking ahead to the future, but not being apprehensive about it or letting fear of the unknown overtake your thoughts. Enjoy today and live in the moment, knowing that your future is in God's hands. Don't miss out on being happy today because you are so worried about tomorrow!
