Winds of Power

This morning I'm talking to Jesus at the top of the Big Rock cliff, sitting on a bench, and watching the river traveling by far below. Sun’s out; river is a blue reflection of the sky. Many types and sizes of boats and ships travel this river highway~ each headed for its own destination. It’s like us. We are all ships sailing on the river of life.

As a child, I learned to sail a boat on this river, and was eager to try my hand at it again. “Jesus, do You want to go for a sail?” There was a steady breeze blowing today, and sailboats depend on the wind to move, and can be stalled without it; however I have memories of thrilling rides almost tipping into the water with a steady gale, and riding up and down the waves created by large boats speeding by. I've also experienced smaller sailboats tipping right over, but they can also be righted and go again. Great fun~ and that was the goal of sailing when we kids went out on the river.

Wind is the source of power and controls the speed and thrill of our ride. “Yes”, says Jesus, “it is like life. When you have the wind of the Holy Spirit moving inside you, the journey is full of meaning and excitement. Without Him, it can be an aimless wandering at the mercy of the currents incapable of reaching the marvelous goals for which you were created.”

Sometimes Jesus, it’s restful to just relax on the boat as a gentle breeze moves it, slowly tacking back and forth as we travel upriver. We bask in the sun’s warmth, the cool waters, and the melody of the bow breaking small waves. A lovely quiet reigns inside my soul. “Mary”, speaks Jesus softly, “no matter the form of the winds of your days ~ gales or breezes~ I’m always along with you for the ride. Learn to share every moment with Me, for I can make every trip a good adventure for you!”

Matthew 28:20 (NKJV)
. . .teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen

Just being on the water is a source of joy in itself. Water is life giving and feeds the soul; we cannot live without it. My heart hears the whisper, "Dwell fully with the water of the Holy Spirit." Jesus, I invite you to ride out my life with me always!

Psalm 139:18 (MSG)
Oh, let me rise in the morning and live always with you!

What feeds your soul?
