Wisdom of Winter

Wisdom of Winter Inspirational Christian Poem by Caroline Gavin of Purposeful Pathway Christian Life Coaching

“Out of the south comes the storm, and out of the north the cold. From the breath of God ice is made, and the expanse of the waters is frozen.” ~ Job 37:9-10


Snow falls gently,

White blankets the earth,

Yet in the silence

I hear songs of rebirth.


Surely these grounds

Summer’s glory will bear,

Soon the colorful blossoms

Of Springtime to wear.


Clothed now in white,

In bright purity,

The earth waits eagerly

To embrace her beauty.


God’s perfect wisdom

Shines amidst the snowfall;

He is Maker of seasons,

Yes, one and all.


Perfect patterns we see

Outside and within;

For the Lord brings glory

Once He cleanses from sin.


Dead to our sin,

Robed in radiant white,

So must we be

Before we feel His delight.


So let us celebrate now

This season of snow,

For His wisdom in winter

God does clearly show.


White as the snow

May our hearts now be,

Cleansed by the blood

Of Jesus on Calvary.


Praise You, O Lord,

God of wisdom and love;

Snowflakes are Your kisses

From Heaven above.


Though clouds cover,

Surely Your glory is near;

In the whispers of winter

We know You are here.


So as snow falls gently,

As white blankets the earth,

We hear Your love song,

A symphony of rebirth.

    Hi Caroline,

    Thank you for sharing the beautiful poem.
    I would like to share a New Year’s prayer.

    ~ A New Year’s Prayer ~
    May God make your Year a Happy one!
    Not by shielding you from all sorrows and pain,
    But by strengthening you to bear it, as it comes;
    Not by making your path easy,
    But by making you sturdy to travel any path;
    Not by taking hardships from you,
    But by taking fear from your heart;
    Not by granting you unbroken sunshine,
    But by keeping your face bright, even in the shadows;
    Not by making your life always pleasant,
    But by showing you when people and their causes need you most,
    and by making you anxious to be there to help.
    God’s love, peace, hope and joy to you for the Year ahead. Amen
    – Be strong & take Heart, all you who hope in the LORD. Psalm. 31:24 –
    ~HAPPY NEW YEAR 2014
