A Beautiful, Frightful, and Glorious Scene



Outside of my window the snow drapes the evergreens, outlines the maples, and covers the ground. At the same moment, the scene is beautiful and frightening. I am warm and blessed with my books, pens, paper, blanket, coffee, and a truckload of opportunities. My beloved Lori sits at the kitchen table reading the Bible, praying, and journaling. The children are asleep and the house is quiet.

And I am here writing as I gaze upon the picturesque scene that points to greatness of God and the beauty of Christ.

May the King of Glory receive glory from his people today. May those who have been spared the suffering of this storm, embrace his mercy. May those who suffer today see in Christ a ready comforter. May we all see that, as the snow drapes the landscape, one-day righteousness will cover the earth. The King of Righteousness will return. Angels will surround him as he comes to receive his white-dressed bride.

Let us not wait to give our hearts to him. He is right now, the King of Glory and worthy of all praise.
