Once there was a man who didn’t believe in the wind. Although he had heard it talked about, he had never seen the wind or been able to hold it in his hand, so he knew it did not exist.
Of course, there were times when he felt an oddly pleasant sensation of movement around him, times when his hair would raise up, moments when on a hot day he would suddenly feel cooler.
There were fall days when the leaves would move across his yard, swirling and floating, seeming to take on a life of their own, with some kind of unexplained energy.
And sometimes snowflakes wouldn’t fall straight down but instead would skid sideways as if propelled by an unseen hand.
But he knew that leaves and snowflakes are perfectly capable of moving on their own.
He knew that things just happen.
And he knew that there is absolutely no such thing as wind.

If you have not received Christ’s free gift of salvation, know this verse: “For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, And abundant in lovingkindness to all who call upon You.” (Psalm 86:5 NAS)
I encourage you to look up these verses for yourself in an accurate translation, write them down, pray, and talk to a pastor from a Bible teaching church. If you have come to salvation, welcome to the family of God! You are in for the ride of your life!
