The temperatures have been rather warm here in Pennsylvania the past few days. Today in no exception. The wind is blowing, but the temperatures are warm. I stepped outside for a minute to put some letters in the mailbox when I noticed the beauty of the day. The wind reminded me of a book that I read many years ago entitled Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire by Jim Cymbala.
My thoughts moved on to the words of Jesus when he said to Nicodemus, "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." (John 3:8) I also thought of how the wind can be strong enough to blow away the dirt and debris and make an area clean.
For today, my prayer is the following:
"Lord, let your Holy Spirit blow in my heart and my life. Clean out the areas in my heart that go against You and Your word. Clear out the areas of dust, dirt and sin in my life. Mold me, make me, and shape me into Your image I pray. Amen."
