The temperature slowly crept above freezing today and our area’s deep freeze is thawing. Although I love snow, there is something comforting about warmth that cold cannot provide. The melting ice and snow reminds me of my “old self” that slowly melts away as I draw closer to the warmth of Jesus.
When ice melts it doesn’t disappear, it just changes form into liquid and gas. Much of this transformation goes unnoticed, just as God’s action in my life is hardly visible. It’s easier to see these changes when reflecting on the past. Noticing God at work in my life is energizing and gives me strength to transform into a new creation, my true self. It’s not easy; we need each other.
