I'm Just a Leaf

This phrase, which is quickly becoming my virtual identity, was given to me through a song. By the Lord’s grace I wrote an entire song about a leaf! It’s a song that reminds us of our helplessness and God’s infinite love towards us who are nothing more than a leaf in the wind. How God loved us though we are just a speck on the face of the earth.

I will try to get the most recent version of the song up soon… I will be working on it more though, so consider it WIP. The coolest part for me was that I discovered the following scriptures AFTER the song was written! Here is some scripture for your consideration:

Proverbs 11:28-29


28 Whoever trusts in his riches will fall,
       but the righteous will thrive like a green leaf.

 29 He who brings trouble on his family will inherit only wind,
       and the fool will be servant to the wise.

Isaiah 64

6 All of us have become like one who is unclean,
       and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags;
       we all shrivel up like a leaf,
       and like the wind our sins sweep us away.

Psalm 8

3 When I consider your heavens,
       the work of your fingers,
       the moon and the stars,
       which you have set in place,

 4 what is man that you are mindful of him,
       the son of man that you care for him?
