The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit. – John 3:8
Ah… the wind. We love wind here in Kansas, especially in March! We were recently on the highway heading for Yoder, Kansas – with wind gusting at record speeds. We were heading for an elevated bridge and there was a very large truck literally weaving from one lane to the other as we came closer to the bridge. My husband wisely said, “I think I’ll just stay back here until we clear that bridge.” Smart guy. I was going to suggest it, but I don’t like to be a backseat driver… turns out I didn’t have to be an annoying and nagging wife.
The gift of the Holy Spirit of God is the most precious blessing the Lord gave us. He is our Comforter, our Light, our Peace, our Love, and it’s only with His help we can have the good fruits in our lives. Those would be the fruits we find in Galatians:
These are the characteristics we lean on God’s Spirit to help us achieve. There’s no way to do it on your own – many try. It’s so much easier to just stop leaning on your own understanding and lean on God’s wisdom every minute of every day. As situations crop up, just pray – instead of going into panic mode or fix it mode – take a few seconds (trust me, that’s all it takes) to just whisper a prayer. It’s amazing how much easier things are after you hand them to the Father.
I LOVE this poem Lucinda wrote called THE TUG.
I found this original song on You Tube – CATCH YOUR WIND. Yes… lets!
Someone once told me that hymns are the most difficult songs to play – well, I’ll tell you something else – writing about spiritual things is more difficult than writing about the coming of springtime and what you plan to plant in your garden! Suffice to say… the Holy Spirit of God is honestly better FELT than TELT. It can’t be explained in words, because words won’t be good enough to explain Him. If you know God’s precious Holy Spirit, you are blessed and you know it.
Please keep KANSAS in your prayers. We have wildfires burning which if not contained soon, will prove to be dangerous to homeowners. Thank you. 🙂
