Unfolding Story

Remember the things we once wanted, these different things we’d ask for over the years? These gifts we’d look forward to, only fading over time. As some gifts weren’t meant to last forever, the temporary enjoyable moments scattered across the years. We realized the best gifts in life weren’t the gifts we got, but the givers who gave them. These presents may stick with us, but our time is limited to those who we love, the loved ones that hold a special place in our life storybook.

Over the years, we remember, we realize that the greatest gift Continue reading “Unfolding Story”

Winter Walk

Take your time, ’cause a lifetime flies by. No need to rush through these seasons in life. Taking your time with each moment that comes by, no need to keep on running through here. Slow down, and enjoy the walk. Many wishing they could go back and change these things, but you’ve got plenty of time. No need to stress about wasting it, this worry will only try to consume the sand in the hourglass.

Don’t be afraid to just believe, when you were made to dream. Through these things that tried to tear you down, through the scars you were left with. It’s okay, it’s okay, you’re beautiful. You’re a wonderful creation, these scars don’t define who you are, you’re free from the chains that the world tries to keep you in. Let your heart be full of God’s love, covering over the sorrow and pain. Mending your heart into something beautiful.

This cold walk you’ve taken, this hurt you’ve held on to. It’s okay, there’s a fire that will keep your heart warm through these cold winter nights. So let go of all that’s trying to keep your heart stuck on the ground. You are better than this, you’re truly better than what the world thinks of you, you’re life is more special and valuable than you could ever imagine.

“The Lord is my strength and song,
And He has become my salvation;
He is my God, and I will praise Him;
My father’s God, and I will exalt Him.”

Exodus 15:2

Autumn

Changing seasons, time moving on. In the autumn when the leaves are at its most vibrant color. Sprinkles of God’s creation falling from the trees in such beauty. Creation bringing something new, season by season. The crisp wind, the smell of burning leaves. The calming winds, the streams of grace flowing.

Looking at the water, reflection of God’s wonderful creation. A perfect picture painted around us. Showing how amazing of an artist our Creator truly is. These reflections we observe. We’re seen in a different view than what the mirror shows us. A God who sees His creation, our souls, not what’s seen on the outside. Dreams not our hearts dream, but dreams He dreams for you and me. The beauty we walk through in each season. Autumn reminding us the that the end is even more beautiful than the beginning of the Spring.

Changing colors, changing weather patterns. These seasons aren’t all in one, so life isn’t lived all at once. We don’t have to rush over these pages, knowing God’s got the pen. In these vibrant blue autumn skies, as the green grass dies, covered in leaves. Soon to be covered by a white glistening blanket of snow. Season by season, day by day, we witness such a lovely creation. Constantly showing off God’s great work. What a gift it is to exist, what a wonderful feeling it is to be one of God’s creation. 

“Have you not known?
Have you not heard?
The everlasting God, the Lord,
The Creator of the ends of the earth,
Neither faints nor is weary.
His understanding is unsearchable.”

Isaiah 40:28
