Eagles know about wind. They set their wings into the wind allowing it lift them higher. Jesus understood wind. He could make it obey. We encounter various winds; those of threat, others of change, and of course the times.
Tim Elmore wrote a piece in one of his books. Surely it pertains. When the wind is strong, a sailor has three choices: to hold the rope and let the wind take him where he doesn't want to go; to let go of the rope and drift aimlessly along; or to learn to adjust the sails so they will take him where he wants to go. The third option is a picture of relevance. The wind represents our changing culture. A sailor can use the wind or be used by it. The wind can be a friend or a foe depending on what we do with it. Good sailors don't fear the wind; they utilize it.
To know this did not come naturally for me. Such may appear more fitting in my walk today; but such hasn't always been the case. The things which pull us down are actually winds of power which can be used to propel us into our best days ever. I encourage any who have stress blowing to consider tapping into this source rather than trying to escape it.
