I glanced out the window and saw the leaves. All beautiful in their red and orange. Their simple beauty made me stop. Look. Then I felt You nudge me. “Look. That is what I’m doing in You.”
I want to run from the window now. The beauty doesn’t seem worth the pain. Dying to live. Saying no to say yes. Transformation so small I don’t see it til one glorious morning.
Yes, Lord, You are breaking me; making me new really. Maybe I don’t like it, but I can’t look at the fall trees without catching my breath. You are a God of masterpieces.
I love You!
