The Humble Snowdrop


It’s not long before we see those pretty wee snowdrops. Of all the beautiful plants and flowers in nature, there’s something special about these humble bits of whiteness, isn’t there?

I think it’s their timing, bringing life back to drab winter deadness; speaking of the hope of brighter days and sunnier times. We need that in life. Sometimes it seems as though the ‘winter’ of our soul is never ending, but there’s always hope. If we look carefully, we can find God’s little snowdrops of promise.

When they’d been exiled by their enemies, God spoke to the Israelites in the Old Testament: “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29 v 11).

Whatever you’re going through just now, take a moment to find the snowdrops of His promise of hope and His good plans for your life. He’s placed them there, so look carefully and you’ll find them.
