Gentle Wind

“One's destination is never a place but rather a new way of looking at things.”  -Henry Miller
Life might have you feeling like you’re a sailboat desperately trying to go your own way.  Some even call their will ‘God’s will’, while they force their selves against the violent current.  Others wait for a sign, perhaps expecting an audible voice booming from the heavens that indicates where they need to go, only to become discouraged when God is silent.  Often times God chooses to operate in the form of a whisper, maybe it’s subtle intuition or a friend’s advice that nudges you in the right direction.  God’s will usually is not forced; rather it’s a gentle wind blowing on your sails that puts you in the right place at the right time.  God’s plan is always greater than our plans, so listen for His voice and remain open to His will. 
Be still, and know that I am God (Psalm 46:10, NIV).
