“He gives snow like wool; He scatters the frost like ashes; He casts
out His hail like morsels; Who can stand before His cold?”  (Psalm 147:16-17)

We are subject to creation.  Cold, hot, wind, rain, snow and tempest
affect us.  The One who created these
things is not affected.  He made these
things that we may live and know Him, but He does not need them.  Look to the One through whom all things were
made and by Him alone be moved.  Do not
be moved by the things of this world, but by the Creator of all worlds.

Lord, my humanity has me bouncing around more that I care to
admit.  I am impressed by small things
and not by You, the Maker of all things. 
Lead me in the way of truth that I may understand more fully Your
goodness and mercy.  Guide me in the way
of life that I may be led into the salvation You have prepared in the sight of
all people.  Lead me, O Lord!

Lord Jesus, You have come in
flesh and know our weakness.  You know
how we become afraid in storms and have doubts when we do not see that You are
with us.  Lift me up in faith that I may
fulfill the first great commandment and love You above all things.  You alone can stand up to all things and You
have stood before all things for our sake that we may have life in You now and
forever.  Amen.
