The leaves fall, removing the splendor from the trees. Branches once adorned with colorful garments admired by all are now left stark and bare. Colors once worn with pride now litter the ground, soon to decay. Help us Lord to contain our pride, to not wrap ourselves in self worship. Let us not retreat from publicly praising you for all we have. This morning we humble ourselves before you and acknowledge your greatness. May we approach this week seeking what we can accomplish for you dear God and not ourselves.

“Then I praised the Most High; I honored and glorified him who lives forever. His dominion is an eternal dominion; his kingdom endures from generation to generation. All the peoples of the earth are regarded as nothing. He does as he pleases with the powers of heaven and the peoples of the earth. No one can hold back his hand or say to him: “What have you done.” – Daniel 4:34-35 (NIV)

In the changing seasons, I see you dear Lord. I see your hand in the detail of emerging fall colors on the leaves of the trees. I see your touch in the way all the leaves blend together to create a symphony of beauty for our eyes.

I praise you dear Lord for your hand in the intricate details of our lives, for your touch on the littlest things in our life. Even though I often cannot see how these small details contribute to the larger tapestry, I praise you that your promises are true, that indeed you are creating a larger picture of beauty. I praise you for your never ending love for us, for your abundant grace. You are worthy of all praise. I praise you that some day we will see the vast vista of all the intricate details together. All praise to you dear God.

“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” – Psalm 139:13-14
