I didn’t get anything posted yesterday mostly because I couldn’t “land” on a subject. I figure if there are too many thoughts floating around in my mind and spirit there are too many to share. This morning I’m still considering something I noticed Saturday while working with my husband to take care of the leaves on the 17 acres of property we live on. (It’s a part of his business) Due to an early heavy wet snow he had “lost” time in the process so it was all hands on deck Saturday. I didn’t mind. There is a strange feeling of accomplishment in working hard, getting dirty and being able to see what you have done, even if just for a few minutes.
The weather was gorgeous and I was enjoying being outside. While working to get the deep accumulation of leaves out from an inlet between two homes I suddenly had this thought, “I wonder if this is what God feels like sometimes? He sends us out only to watch us come back to the same corner, hiding with the walls high around us.” I wonder if He feels like saying, “Jody the way out is so obvious.There is really only one way out. It’s my way.” Now once were out of our hiding place there are infinite opportunities but getting out, well that’s another story.
Then I was noticing the colors. Who knew there was a path between green to orange or red? God does. He created trees and leaves with this extravagant show of beauty. There were so many shapes and colors and sizes! (Hmmm, just like there are so many different kinds of people)
Then I thought about how the fallen leaves can be good to protect flower beds but too many leaves left on the ground can kill the growth underneath.
Well, can you see where I’m going with this. The Bible says that if we don’t praise the Lord “the rocks will cry out.” God’s creation can speak to us, teach us if only we will listen. What is God saying to you this season? What do you see in the leaves of the trees or while watching animals store up for winter or even in just the temperature changing? Let’s honor God today by sharing your thoughts? There is nothing too insignificant. Every detail no matter how small or great is purposefully placed there by God for YOU today! Enjoy!
