Ephesians 4:22-23 and a Path Through Fall Trees, Fontenelle Forest, Bellevue, Nebraska.
“To put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds” Ephesians 4:22-23
Simplicity and Renewal
We live in a complex world. Our minds desire rest and renewal, but so much comes at us these days that it is hard for our minds to get away. Research shows that there are plenty of physical benefits to getting away from our technology crazed world. There are also plenty of spiritual benefits to getting away, especially to the outdoors. Even Jesus often escaped to nature.
The simplicity of nature offers us many relaxing moments. Watching fall leaves gently drift to the ground or taking a walk in the woods at the end of autumn are such moments. God speaks through these quiet moments.
As you gaze at the simplicity of this photo think of a quiet fall walk in the woods. What does such a walk tell you about God? Let me know in the comments below.
