If you’re enjoying the Christmas music on the radio you may have heard this song with Chris Tomlin and Audrey Assad. I thought the lyrics were very neat. Often we as humans look in the big, showy events for God’s working. But this means we miss where He most often works – in small, small ways everyday. Just as Elijah, huddled in the crook of the rock, didn’t see God in the mighty, hurricane wind or in the earthquake or the great fire. God was in the quiet, gentle whisper.

And as the Israelites waited for their Messiah to come, expecting him as a king to vanquish their enemies and troubles. Instead… he came quietly in a humble form, as an eternal example to us.

So here’s Winter Snow:

Could’ve come like a mighty storm
With all the strength of a hurricane
You could’ve come like a forest fire
With the power of heaven in Your flame

But You came like a winter snow
Quiet and soft and slow
Falling from the sky in the night
To the earth below

You could’ve swept in like a tidal wave
Or an ocean to ravish our hearts
You could have come through like a roaring flood
To wipe away the things we’ve scarred

But You came like a winter snow
You were quiet
You were soft and slow
Falling from the sky in the night
To the earth below

Oh, no, Your voice wasn’t in a bush burning
No, Your voice wasn’t in a rushing wind
It was still
It was small
It was hidden

You came like a winter snow
Quiet and soft and slow
Falling from the sky in the night
To the earth below

Falling
To the earth below
You came falling
From the sky in the night
To the earth below
