The Leaf


The Leaves are dancing in the wind.
Blowing hither and yon,
Seemingly in a random manner.
Beautiful.
Bringing great joy to all who see them.

Each leaf is unique,
One of a kind,
With different shapes and forms,
Different colors.
And yet all still leaves.

They move across the field,
In a seemingly random manner.
It looks as if an unseen hand is stirring them to move.
Yet we know that they are propelled by the wind.

The wind can blow  fast.
The wind can blow slowly.
The leaves move in a manner propionate to the force of the wind.
We see in the movement of the leaves that the wind is real.
The wind itself is unseen.
You can feel the wind though and you can surely see the effect of it.


We are like the leaves.
We are all unique.
We have different shapes.
Our function in the body is different too.
We are created, each of us unique and one of a kind.

We have different giftings and even from within the same gifting,
Different ways of operating in it.
When we are surrendered to Yeshua, we too go wherever He sends us.

Our day may seem to made up of random encounters,
But God himself has engineered each one.
God directs our paths.
He has created us and formed us for just such a time as this.
The difference is when we are in tune to him, he is seen in us.
He is not invisible like the wind .
For as we live and move and have our being in him,
He is seen in us.

Praise be to God, the Father and Creator of us all.

Next time you see a lovely leaf,
Remember we too go where He sends us and we too are beautiful, and unique.

Proverbs 3:6
In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths.

Proverbs 16:9
A man's mind plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps and makes them sure.

Revelation 4:11
Worthy are You, our Lord and God, to receive the glory and the honor and dominion, for You created all things; by Your will they were [brought into being] and were created.

Jeremiah 1:5
Before I formed you in the womb I knew [and] approved of you [as My chosen instrument], and before you were born I separated and set you apart, consecrating you; [and] I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.
