Winter Snow

One of the songs that our praise band is singing at the worship service tomorrow is Winter Snow.  I had never heard it before, but I see, as I look it up in Google, that it is a Chris Tomlin song:

Could've come like a mighty storm
With all the strength of a hurricane
You could've come like a forest fire
With the power of heaven in your flame.

But you came like a winter snow
Quiet and soft and slow
Falling from the sky at night
To the earth below
Thinking about it, I think God might be like a winter snow in some ways. 

  • Snow coats everything - it's everywhere. 
  • Snow transforms the landscape.  Nothing is the same after a snow.  What used to be brown and lifeless becomes sparkling and alive, beautiful to behold
  • Snow is quiet.  Silent. 
  • And yet, even though it is quiet, it is also relentless.  Falling. 
  • No matter what we like to think, snow is unpredictable. 
  • Snow is out of our control.
  • It can be dazzling.
  • Snow can take you by surprise.
He came like a winter snow.  And still does.
