A Leaf in Summer

Brown dried up leaf in summer

Out of place?

Out of season?

A misfit in my path?

Or a reminder sent by God?

A note

To awaken me to count the days,

Wasting not a moment?

“Redeem the time”

He says.

“Even in our best shape we are a brittle piece of mortality. Your life is a breath, don’t waste it.” —LeCrae

Revival

Leaf in the wind drawing
“leaf in the wind” drawing by LeonasDesigns

My mind wasn’t focused on You

Like a leaf in the wind

It swirled and twirled

And got carried away

To wander in places of doubt

Coming to rest on the fence of indecision

Caught in the fear of unknown

Where it began to wither away

Without purpose

Until the force of Your divine breath

Caused it to stir, awaken, and break free

To soar to higher places

And sit in the heavenlies

At Your feet

Soaking in the truth of Your word

Now it’s a mind renewed

To do good works

And walk in Your Spirit on earth

It no longer wanders aimlessly

Blown by winds of uncertainty

For it awaits resurrection

Where it will live forever

On the tree of life.
