Autumn inspires the artist with a warm palette—a captivating array of oranges, reds, and browns. With splashes of yellow and purple.


With our brushes, pens, and cameras, we capture trees that make an appearance just once a year. With our stamps and markers, we send Thanksgiving cards to loved ones, and with our hearts and Bibles, we jot down thoughts of gratitude and peace.


Every autumn, God paints His landscape for us to admire. But that’s not the only thing He paints. With a masterful eye and a gentle touch, He paints the picture of our lives, adding layer to layer each year.

Step 1 – Suit up.
Step 2 – Find the trigger.
Step 3 – Enter the arena.
Step 4 – Hide.
Step 5 – Find higher ground.


Every time I played laser tag in a castle-like arena, I knew I needed to find higher ground. My tactical position from the towers allowed me to spot unsuspecting friends and zap their “armor.” Flashing red lights and little warning sirens told me I had hit my mark.


Why is it that I’m better at playing laser tag than winning some of life’s spiritual battles? It’s because I forget my battle plan. Years of struggles have taught me that to win some battles, I need to cling to God.

When the cases of COVID-19 keep climbing. When nothing in your day seems to be working. When you need cool relief in the middle of a hot summer. That’s when we need some soul-satisfying refreshment, and that’s what God’s Word does for our hearts.


When life creates a thirst within us for the deep things of God, He answers our need with Himself and Scripture. When we need to hear from our heavenly Father, He can speak to us directly, through His Word, through sermons, and through those who love Him. Some of these people write for our magazine, Refresh.
