Holy Ground

Holy Ground

The snow outside my window is beautiful. The snow represents a day off of school. The snow causes a temporary pause to activities in the church building. The snow forces me to take pause and interrupts my regular routine.

I find that God loves to take advantage of opportunities when we are not in control of everything to remind us who He is. I love my routine, and when situations occur that put me out of control, I can get frustrated or flustered easily. It is in those moments that God reminds me that no matter what situation is going on around me, He will be with me.

The snow outside my window reminds me how the ground we walk every day can be holy ground. Yesterday morning we read the story of Moses and the burning bush. Moses was going about his routine when God appeared and told him “the place on which you are standing is holy ground.” (Exodus 3:5) Suddenly, Moses was outside of his comfort zone, but God reassured him that in the midst of fear, “I will be with you.” (Exodus 3:12)

I hope this snow has reminded you that the ground we walk is holy ground. I hope it changes up your routine just enough to remind you that God is with you in every situation. 

God Bless,
