I sat at my favorite little coffee shop the other day during a snowstorm and found myself fixated on the frantic snowflakes falling from the sky. A winter snowfall is not always so hectic. This one, however, came with a lot of wind, pushing and shoving around each little crystal victim. The snowflakes tried to stay afloat in the icy air, but inevitably, they fell. As they landed, they melted on the salted concrete and blended into the piles of snow.
It’s easy to become dizzy with the world around you, fighting to be noticed, fighting to stay on top. The fear of melting into the ground or even worse, looking so much like everyone else and become part of the pile, can cause you to forget what you were created to do.
You have a purpose. And it’s not to try and stand out among the other flakes (again, analogy, not actual people…). You are better off accepting your journey for what it is. God designed you with a unique pattern, unlike any other.
He notices you.
She said, "You are the God that sees me." - Genesis 16:13
