A few days ago, I awoke to a world covered in snow. It’s amazing how quaintly magical a snowfall can be. My yard, which had once been a sign of true chaos, had been transformed into a calm and peaceful white blanket. Where chewed up sticks, and other such things, had once been scattered about, only snow layed. Frost stretched its delicate self across tree branches and fence posts. One could not see the flaws of my house, but only what God, Himself, had put there.

It is very often easy to get caught up in the chaos of life. Tragedies, shortcomings, busy schedules, personal failures or dilemmas…. These things surprise us, frustrate us, or just bring stress. It can be very hard to see how any good can come from these situations. However, “We know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God,…” (Rom.8:28). When times of chaos come, ask God to cover it with His white blanket of righteousness, and enjoy the calm, for tomorrow will bring its own chaos anew.
