Humbled by the snow
Anyways, back to the snow...I love the snow, I really don't love bitter cold, but snow I can handle. Leaving my house today it was so quiet. The outdoors was so extremely peaceful, nothing seemed out of place, everything flowed. I was so scared to move, or breathe, I didn't want to disrupt the peacefulness I was feeling. I told God at the beginning of the run, please let me hear, let me see, let me feel the things you need to say to me. I turned on my KLove Iphone app and ran. I heard songs that spoke about peace, joy, being the lights of the world, and how Jesus will carry you. Yea, I needed ALL of that!
I just felt humbled by all the snow falling around me, and also falling into my eyes and eyelashes! Not to sound cheesy and this is...but I really felt like God's love and joy was showering me as I was running. Like a cleanse. I needed that, too. I need to no matter what always choose joy. Choose to speak love when all I want to do is yell, choose to show love when all I want to do is be alone and isolated. It's a tough choice, friends. Choosing joy is hard.
Yet you feel so peaceful when you do. By choosing joy you are not saying everything is perfect, or that you are fine when you are not, you are saying I can't do it on my own. You can't be joyful without Jesus, you just can't. So here's to choosing joy, here's to choosing Jesus to help you feel and show love, His love. Here's to God's love and peace cleansing you like a beautiful snowfall.
