This last week while sitting at a small round table in a
downtown restaurant, a leaf floated through an upper story small open window
and landed on the table, then floated over to the edge of the table, and I
caught it in my open hand. Interesting that I was at a place in my life where I
needed to make a critical decision immediately.
The LORD said, “I AM TURNING
OVER A NEW LEAF!” At first I thought, that is odd, why would GOD need to turn
over a new leaf? Then HE said, “I AM turning over a new leaf for you.” I mused,
“Oh”…as I twirled the small brown dead leaf between my fingers.” HE said, “I AM
immediately removing the dead leaves, dead trees, dead seasons and dead
relationships from your life.” HE sounded quite serious. Dead is of course, the
opposite of LIFE which means when the “dead removal is done” all that is left
is LIFE, NEW LIFE, NEW SEASONS, AND NEW RELATIONSHIPS! We do not have eyes to
see the same that GOD sees. Sometimes we are blinded by our history, perceived
needs, ideals, personality, gifts/
talents, strengths/weaknesses, interpretations/perspectives, and/or influences/beliefs.
I am grateful that ELOHIM is truly the LORD of my life and comes and moves and
has HIS being on my behalf even when I am unaware of what I need most. I love
that about HIM!

ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts” (Isaiah 55:9,
