Isn’t it amazing that no two snowflakes are alike? When we see the intricate beauty of a white crystal as it falls, we can know that it was lovingly created with a unique purpose in mind.
Some flakes provide moisture to the earth as its surface prepares to freeze. Others are made to be tiny pieces of a soft white cover, giving protection to that which lies beneath. One flake may become part of a spring in the forest, or water in a river as the season changes and the blanket melts. Yet another, seen by the eye of man, is recognized as a beautiful reflection of its Creator. Every flake serves a purpose, and no two snowflakes come to rest in exactly the same place.
As a snowflake falls to the ground reflecting the beauty of its creator, may we too glory in the plans God has prepared for us. For no two people are alike. One is called to fall on a hardening heart and soften it with kind words. Another, to cover the earth with a layer of love and prayer. Others will be as a quiet pool by which those who are weary can rest, or part of a raging river designed to bring change as it flows through the land. God has given each of us a different purpose. To pray, or to give, or to love in a way no one else can, in a place no one else will be. To be a reflection of Him to those who are around us.
Remember, there is no one else on earth with the beauty and design of you. You are needed in God’s Kingdom. God has a purpose for your life.
