Worriless Nature
Written by Bethany Curee, God’s Daughter – Freckled & Free

The leaves scatter, tossed by the wind and as they fall they don’t tremble or quake, they do what they were designed to do by nature, by God’s intent design. They gently allow themselves to be taken on a new journey. They don’t fight it. They give into the new journey and course for their lives.

If they had a mind I believe curiosity for what lies ahead would be their top thought. Eager to fly, eager to fall and settle into the new. Their new doesn’t look like dying in fact it isn’t scary at all. It’s something they’ve been waiting for all along.

And what if we could be like the leaves? What if we could trust the path that lies ahead? To allow the seasons to change and simply, gently, trust what the new season has ahead. To simply…gracefully….transition from one journey to the next.

Because all around us nature continues relentlessly, while we humans created in the very image of God fight it all.

If it were up to us things would stay the same. Comfortable and safe. But there is an everlasting Father and our creator, who designed us for transition. Not to put fear in us, but to propel us to change. To grow into each newness.

Jesus help us to fall into the seasons of life like a leaf willing to surrender, to let go and embrace what you have new for us. That we may expect good things from our heavenly Daddy because no matter how it looks we trust Him.

There is so much beauty in the dance of the falling leaves, in the seasons change, and in the life of leaves – if only we choose to see it for ourselves.

“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” Matthew 6:25-34

“For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; a time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace.” Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

    Never thought about how our lives are like the leaves. I tend to look at life as “seasons, ” we need to stop and look at our lives and discern what season we are in. Beautifully written! Love your thoughts on life! Keep up the blog. You are a blessing!
