Autumn is making an entrance in my neck of the woods. I love the change of seasons, and fall is my favourite of them all. The changes are everywhere. The temperatures are cooler in the morning, yet comfortably warm in the afternoon. The oak trees along my walking path are laden with acorns. Pumpkins and apples are ripening in orchards and farms nearby. The sounds of geese as they fly in formation can be heard daily now. Even the scent of the air has changed.
All of this showcases the glorious creative power of God.
The song I’ve been listening to over and over this week is Hillsong United’s “So Will I”. We introduced our church family to this song today and we had an amazing conversation as a group about what amazes us most about God’s creation.
I’ve watched this video repeatedly, and it brings me to tears every single time.
If it all reveals Your nature, so will I.
How amazing that God created immense things like galaxies, and tiny thing like ants to show His nature to us and to provide us with an intricate, glorious place to live out our lives.
But that wasn’t enough. He came Himself to seek and save those who are lost. Me. You.
That is one of the most powerful lines in the song. At His Word, every failure evaporates and we begin again in Him.
As you go about your day, look for His nature in the world around you. Let it remind you that He is here with you, concerned about what concerns you, and take peace from that knowledge.
You’re the One who never leaves the one behind.
I’m thankful He didn’t leave me behind.
