John 3:8

The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.

Wind is a funny thing.

It whips around us, indifferent to the changes it causes. It may bring relief from oppressive heat, or it may tear down a house, but whip along it does. We are left to interpret the "goodness" of its actions (or perhaps the results).

Sometimes life happens and there is nothing we could have done to control it one way or the other. We acquire a job and call it good; or are met with the death of a friend and call it, at best, a catalyst. And so life's wind whips around us and we're left to our interpretive systems.

But we're never left alone.

  1. Hallelujah! Also, one must remember that God is good and works all things for good for those who love God and are called according to His purpose. (Romans 8:28)

    Even if some outcome doesn't seem immediately “good” in our eyes, as His children, we must try to understand that God is trustworthy. And so, while life's wind whips around us, we know that God holds the wind.
