God is the best artist in the world, for only God can create such different themes. We see many artists that try to capture the seasons on their canvases by painting what they see around them, and they do a wonderful job. However, nothing compares to experiencing God’s Creation first hand.
Fall is here! Those who favor sweaters, scarves and hats have been digging through the closets and cabinets unpacking their favorite items to adorn themselves with during the cool weather. Those who are looking forward to the harvest season are taking inventory of the camouflage and testing out waders. Those who are of the culinary, creative or appreciative enthusiasts are stocking up with cinnamon and pumpkin spice.
As we move into this new season experiencing God’s creation, let us be mindful that we are also God’s creation. I pray that we experience God in a new way this Fall. In doing so, let us dig through the scriptures each day unpacking what God has for us and adorn ourselves with the Armor of God. Let us take inventory and examine our Belt of Truth, Breastplate of Righteousness, Gospel of Peace, Shield of Faith, Helmet of Salvation, and Sword of the Spirit and know the Power of Prayer. I pray that we do this and “Fall” deeper in love with God!
Grace and Peace,
Chase Burns, Youth Minister
