With excitement, I put manure on the snow covered field. With each trip another brown strip was added. The next morning, everything was covered in white snow. You could still see some traces, but everything was snow white. The sun made it all sparkle. Blue sky and clean air were the cherry on the cake when looking at nature’s display.
Is it possible to extinguish visible, dirty traces in our life? Or dispose of sorrows and burdens professionally?
I heard that Jesus forgives sin. The biblical prophet Micha used a strong picture: God disposes of all of our sins in the depth of the ocean where no one can bring them up again. With my councillor, I gave everything to Jesus in prayer. He started to change my thoughts and actions and continues his work until today. Through His love, my heart became softer. It was as if I would change my old clothes with new, white garments.
“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.Isaiah 1,18
