The Wonder of autumn: Embracing God’s Glory-Gift
Do you love the sound of your feet scuffling through the brittle crunch of autumn leaves as you walk in the woods crisp-cool and saturated with the fingerprint of God. Beauty surrounds us and peace covers our souls. The Spirit moves and we wonder why it is easier to “feel” thankful when you breathe in deep the beauty of nature.
Our hearts fill with joy, as we appreciate the wonder of God, Creator King. As we grab hold with heart stretched wide, this glory-gift of this colour-blazoned season. It beckons us to look beyond the rush of the tasks for today, past the problems and questions that tempt us to the blight of ingratitude.
We experience more of God through what He has made.
“For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.”–Romans 1:20
We find ourselves with an unquenchable desire to enjoy the beauty-blessing of this season. Sunlight shimmers setting the leaves on fire with the glow of autumn. Do you love taking pictures, capturing little glimpses of seasonal colours and textures–rocks, bark, acorns, and trees the WOW! moments. The colours and textures, no two alike, fill our hearts with worship and should make us thankful for the wonder of autumn and the glory-gift of God.
What are you thankful for today?
