God is Good - Snow Cloud Williams

My name is Snow Cloud, and this is my story.

Often I wonder what my impact on my community is. Do I have a purpose in this world that so often plunges you to the pits of despair? Here is what I know, Jesus has walked with me through my life’s darkest hours, and helped me through it. There are times where I have felt completely lost in my grasp of life situations. Especially after I lost my best friend to brain cancer, I knew the only way I would get through was with my belief in God.

I am still not married and honestly have wrestled and cried “why?” For reasons I can’t fully fathom, God tells me in many ways I am not ready.

So here I am, a miracle to be here in the USA, adopted with a Native American Mother who 3 years after I came, raised two sons as a single parent. Yet despite all the hardships my Mom raised us with love and care that only she could. I love you Mom. Anyone who says it can’t be done has yet to meet my Mom.

I got to experience life with Jesus when I went to Israel and walked the Holy Land. While on the trip I was struck by why I was not in awe of being in Israel. There were many highlights in Israel including the realization that Jesus walked where I am standing. The moment I absolutely cherish was seeing the Lord’s prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane. I saw so many translations including 6 or 7 Native American languages which made me so proud to have a Native American Mother. I kept walking around and saw the Lord’s Prayer in the language of South Korea. I fell to my knees and cried to myself. It’s a moment I will cherish for the rest of my life.

I don’t know God's divine plans for me but I know to try my best to trust him and pray. If you don’t believe in the power of God I am here to tell you, God works miracles. I am a testament to God’s miracles just like each and everyone of you. Jesus Christ’s love is singular to each and everyone of you. Think of the person next to you and know Jesus loves them as much as he loves you. I have a mother who loves me and a brother, also adopted. I have friends and a church family.

Even when I was not perfect in the eyes of so many, I know I have Jesus. I ask again, what is my impact on my community? I pray people see joy and happiness. The impact I have is not defined by me or by others on this earth. He knows the impact I have and I pray my impact can move someone closer to God.

Matthew 28:20 I am with you always, to the end of the age.

God is Good
