God’s Amazing Colors Exemplifies God Has No Limits

“He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom it.” (Ecclesiastes 3:11)

On my recent trip to USA and Canada, we were privileged to see some of the magnificent Fall color that I’ve heard much about over the years, but had never been visiting at the right time to see it myself.

As we gazed out the windows of the coach, or just walked beneath the beautiful trees, it seemed almost too beautiful. For me, coming from the Southern Hemisphere, the colors seem to be different to what we experience in our Autumn. Of course the trees are different, so the colors are too. But, we do have beautiful Autumn color here too.

A few of the photos that I took in Eastern Canada I’ve had to revisit to make sure that I didn’t artificially enhance them on my computer. But no, they really did look like that! If I hadn’t seen it with my eyes, I probably wouldn’t have believed it. They need no enhancement.

It made me think of the amazing palette that God has used to color all that we see. There are so many colors in the rock formations, our coastlines, the oceans and rivers, the trees, the mountain scenery, the sky, that change with seasons and light, to a myriad of more colors.

God needs no digital enhancement of His colors. It reminded me that God is not limited in ways we may be. He has this variety of creative power available, that we cannot even imagine and will probably never see and experience all of it, in our lifetime. How awesome is that!

God planned each of those colors and just as He cared enough to do that so beautifully, He also cares about you and me. He has planned our days, He knows our thoughts and He feels, and understands our pain.

Our Creator God has given us so much to appreciate and thank Him for – I want to always be aware of that.

  1. Hi Fiona,
    I am so grateful that when you took this wonderful trip, you got some insights to continue your writing. The areas you visited truly do have the most vibrant of colors when Autumn arrives.

    They do exemplify God’s majesty and the environment He created to be our earthly home in all its splendor. We are His masterpiece which is hard for me to remember when I look at these awesome other creations.

    Your devotional reminds me of this – His care for each of us no matter what season we are going through. I was needing this reminder so thank you for spelling it out!


  2. Hi Lynn,

    Thanks for your comments – I think it may have been you who reminded me that I would have plenty to write about when I came back!

    I think it helps sometimes to take the focus off me and my situation – to be awed by all that God gives us to enjoy.

    Bless you,

  3. Fiona-

  4. Thanks Jenna – creation is a great therapy! We can all probably do with some can’t we.

    Thanks Tosha – I like that “paying it forward” it puts a new slant on sharing our stories – as we share the blessings.

    God bless,
