Withered, old and the leaves float from the sky.
Crisp, veined, curled, it crackles in my hand.
By Fall its purpose is over, it separates from the tree.
GOD’S MARVELOUS PLAN!
Underfoot we find vast numbers of dying leaves.
We could easily say, that their use is over, and yet
GOD’S PLAN ALL ALONG!
It has just begun, for dying it becomes new food.
Correctly used it can now compost until the Spring.
When it is needed in the garden to begin a new cycle.
GOD IS AMAZING!
That of preparation for fresh growth, awaking earth.
So many life cycles and we take them for granted.
Yet God set the planets in space and yet placed His hand.
GOD IS ALL ENCOMPASSING!
Upon the smallest snowflake which He has designed
We don’t take the time to look, to study and marvel.
At this amazing universe that He has created for us.
GOD I MUST STOP AND PRAISE YOU!
We could start by praising Him for our awesome planet.
And marvel at the miracle of birth, a newborn baby.
We still focus on the leaves and the necessity of recycling.
GOD WE FOCUS NOT UPON YOU!
The work they cause when we need to sweep them away.
So many things we miss as time flies by and we fail,
To see His awesome purpose and design in our world.
GOD YOU CREATED FOR US TO ENJOY!
How detailed are you God, how beautiful Your design.
If we could but open up the shell of an egg, and look
At its three parts, we would once more be astonished.
GOD HAS A PURPOSE IN EVERYTHING!
That our God can explain the Trinity in a simple egg.
He not only created us to praise Him, but to open
Up our eyes to our surroundings, to think and to reason.
GOD HAS A PLAN FOR US!
From the sky above us to the earth beneath our feet.
Are vast unexplored reasons to believe there is a God.
We who are His followers are enfolded in His purpose.
GOD WILL OVERCOME!
He will prove Himself ever faithful to His promises.
This world is His and all that is in it shouts His name.
Remember the old leaf, remember you have a purpose!
GOD IS VICTORIOUS! Amen
