John 3:8 Scripture Meditation by Stephen Taylor

John 3:8

“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.” 


I was thinking about my life and how it can be described as a couple things – a brick and a leaf – and how they respond to the wind. For 30+ years, I was a brick. Stubborn, heavy, unwilling to change or yield, I thought I was fine because I looked like every other brick and was doing what they were doing. God’s will blew through my life, but it didn’t faze or change me. So, it blew stronger and stronger until it hit hurricane-level force and smashed that brick to pieces in Madison Correctional Institution. God would not be denied.


Now, I’m a leaf. As God’s gentle wind blows through my life, I am carried about in His arms. I go where He tells me because I know He is the one guiding me, holding me, directing my path, and I know I’m not going alone!!! I may not always feel the wind carrying me, but I know it’s there and I know it’s taking me right where I’m supposed to be!! My life often looks like a leaf is dancing with the wind and that’s me dancing in the arms of Jesus because of who He is and how much He has done for me!!


The lesson I learned is that if God wants you to move, you’re going to move, either super-fast, scary, and feeling out of control, or you can be gracefully carried about and dance your way through life in the arms of our Savior!!!


Be encouraged and be encouraging!!! I love you all, God bless, and glory to God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit!!!!
