Christians Are Like Snowflakes

Alright, I know it’s been all about snow lately… But honestly people, that is my life right now. In February, Denver even broke crazy snow records. FullSizeRender (19)

We were pounded with one storm after another.

So like I said… it’s my life right now. And it got me thinking.

First, I thought about how snowflakes are like people…

Uniquely made

Different shapes

Some are big

Some are small

Some travel in clumps (like women to a restroom)

Delicate

Fragile

Easily broken

Snow flakes, extreme close-up

Then I had to ask Google how a snow flake actually forms…

 A snowflake begins to form when an extremely cold water droplet freezes onto a pollen or dust particle in the sky. This creates an ice crystal. As the ice crystal falls to the ground, water vapor freezes onto the primary crystal, building new crystals – the arms of the snowflake.

After I read that explanation I was blown away…

[Am I the only one that did not know about the pollen/dust factor of snow?]

Then I realized… Christians are like snowflakes!

A human is just a speck of dust or pollen floating lost through the sky until it/they are met with water…

God

It covers them and they become a crystal…

Christian

The tiny snowflakes move and are blown around by the wind…

Holy Spirit

After the transformation from dust to an ice crystal and the addition of wind…

These ice crystals can bump into each other in the sky they sometimes create larger clumps/flakes…

Think Relationships/Community 

Then they land they form together with the rest of the dropped snow…

Think Church/Bible Study/Small Group.

But, when the wind really moves the snowflakes they are a force to be reckoned with. They have the power/strength/might to close freeways, collapse roofs, and create giant drifts.

When individually examined and/or when assembled with a bazillion other flakes on a mountaintop… They also make for a breath taking sight.

A single snow flake is weak, powerless, and easily lost.

What if we were to assemble with the flakes (no pun intended) around us and become a force to be reckoned with?

An unstoppable amazing force.

Create a snow drift

Cause an avalanche

Who around you can you start a conversation with?

What could you achieve if you “stuck” together?

What could we do if we assembled?

  1. What a beautiful picture! An avalanche of believers!!!
    I love the first few hours of a snow fall…it’s so beautiful! When you feel God’s peace and love surround you…
    I tend to feel closest to God in nature, I think it’s because its all encompassing. He is in everything! And too think and ponder on the snowflake makes me feel so loved by my Jesus.
    On my small kitchen window, I tape the snowflakes my kids make for me every year. One of my favorite gift from them 🙂
