Words of Snow



Teach me to be awake

To be alert in this life that you have given me oh so generously

Teach me to live consciously  in order to experience the fullness of life

In moments of joy or sadness, fulfilment or disappointment,

healing or pain, in triumph and in lose

Connected in space and in time to everything around me

Connected in wholeness to each and every passing moment

And most importantly connected to you in listening and communion

in quietness and trust.



Psalms 27:14 KJV

Wait on the LORD; be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.

Romans 8:24 The Message

Waiting does not diminish us , any more than waiting diminishes a pregnant mother. We are enlarged in the waiting.

“God never hurries, there are no deadlines against which he must work. Only to know this is to quiet our spirits and relax our nerves”

A.W Tozer

Truth is the weight of waiting can be agonizing.To be honest, I wax and wane in my faith and faithfulness. But I have come to gradually embrace the unwelcome but necessary gift of waiting. Whether I like it or not.

I find, both consciously and subconsciously, that essential transformation occurs within me and most importantly my spiritual depths are stirred to new heights and matured more than before; serving as a great step forward, in my duty as a Christian, in my continuous strive towards attaining the whole measure of Christ even while there still remains SO MUCH more that God continues to teach and rebuke within me.

Waiting also enlarges our capacity of hope because as we begin to acknowledge our own inability to perfect ourselves or the world around us, the more our hope is strengthened, expanded to magnify our faith in God.

His plan over our lives is, was and will always be perfect and powerful enough that in His immeasurable wisdom and glory, He stirs HOPE and an undeniable yearning within us for things that we can’t yet see.

Now how amazing is that!If He can do that why then should we trouble ourselves while our only role is to wait and be steadfastly diligent while in that period?

Keep the Faith. At the fullness of time He will deliver. He certainly, will perform.

Remember: The promise always outweighs the procedure



I refuse to be discouraged

I refuse to be discouraged,
To be sad, or to cry;
I refuse to be downhearted,
and here’s the reason why…

I have a God who’s mighty,
Who’s sovereign and supreme;
I have a God who loves me,
and I am on His team.

He is all wise and powerful,
Jesus is His name;
Though everything is changeable,
My God remains the same.

My God knows all that’s happening;
Beginning to the end,
His presence is my comfort,
He is my dearest friend.

When sickness comes to weaken me,
To bring my head down low,
I call upon my mighty God;
Into His arms I go.

When circumstances threaten to rob me from my peace;
He draws me close unto His breast,
Where all my strivings cease.

And when my heart melts within me,
and weakness takes control;
He gathers me into His arms,
He soothes my heart and soul.

The great “I AM” is with me,
My life is in His hand,
The “Son of the Lord” is my hope,
It’s in His strength I stand.

I refuse to be defeated,
My eyes are on my God;
He has promised to be with me,
as through this life I trod.

I’m looking past all my circumstances,
To Heaven’s throne above;
My prayers have reached the heart of God,
I’m resting in His love.

I give God thanks in everything,
My eyes are on His face;
The battle’s His,
the victory is mine;
He’ll help me win the race.
