The cool breezes of October help blow away our old stale thoughts. The winds serve us as they swirl around and stir things up like the rotating leaves in a cesspool.
Those negative things float to the top like fallen leaves that have left their life source. They are no longer important nor do they contribute to our well-being. They will soon be in big trash bags like the gathered leaves waiting to be crushed and thrown away.
Those worn-out notions, beliefs and error thoughts will disappear along with an array of false friends and acquaintances. They can no longer attach themselves to our lives and pretend to be genuinely concerned about our welfare. The seasons change and we must change with them.
The fluttering leaves have fallen from the living tree. They have served their purpose though they once offered us a sense of beauty. But time moves on and as nature continues on its course, we graciously sweep up the discarded.
We get ready for our personal harvests to arrive and we know that in just a matter of time we will gleefully exclaim, “Behold, I will do a new thing!” (Isaiah 43:19)
