Come Away with Me

Psalm 65:4

How blessed is the one whom You choose and bring near to You to dwell in Your courts. We will be satisfied with the goodness of Your house, Your holy temple.


From My October Heart Series

How I love this season
My favorite time of Fall
I remember the drawing
And Our Saviors tender call

Come away with Me
For some time to talk
Is this why it is the best
Of nature’s scenic walk

The beautiful sites
And the weathers sounds
Leaves are changing
Brilliant colors abound

Come away He is calling
I hear His tender voice
Then I am reminded
He gives to each of us the choice

So with my choice
Today I choose
In my October heart
My time to use

To seek Him more
Oh I must find
Time with Him
Nourishing sublime

Come away with Me
That welcome pull and draw
But why does it seem I sense it
Strongest during the Fall

Could it be because
He has set eternity in our hearts
With such special times
For us to come apart

A time to cast off
All the old ways
Enriching our roots
So we can stay

In step and in line
With our calls
There is something so marvelous
About the season of Fall

As it is in Winter
Spring Summer or Fall
He is always calling out
Calling to one and to all.

Come away with Me He calls
And one day we’ll understand
These Seasonal changes
That are designed by His hand

Autumn season signage
So beautifully designed
And perfectly orchestrated
From His marvelous mind

Isn’t the fall a perfect picture of how we must put off dead works or works of trying to be good enough for God? I’m sure many, like me, probably most of us at one time or another have tried to do and be better. Telling ourselves while thinking The Lord would love us more if we were better or good enough. We are created in His image and likeness and therefore already more than enough. We just need to cast off our works so that our lives bring Him glory. I love the season of falling leaves. In the days to come we will talk more about what The Lord taught me about falling leaves and how they become even more beautiful as they die. Casting off the old self nature and learning from our seasons is how we mature. So let us go and grow to the glory of our Father who so lavishly poured out His love for us. Amen

God bless you and keep you and make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you and give you Shalom.

Until next time, thank you for listening with me. Laurette
