A Conversation With The Wind

From the lips of fear, the whispers of failure fill my ears. “What’s the point,” I ask, marking myself for doom with the negative words uttered by those that always seem to fall short. A light breeze suddenly wraps me in its embrace as the wind tells me to “hold tight” with a faint whisper.

I look. No one. Perhaps I have finally cracked. I am overdue for a nervous breakdown.

“All is well,” it says as I grapple with the notion that I may have finally gone insane.

“All is well? All is well. That can’t be, look at where I’m at. This isn’t the correct path for me!”

“Have you no clue who I AM,” the wind questions with the answer already in mind before this moment. “I AM the ALL of the all. There has been nothing before Me, nor will there be anything after Me! I AM with you nodding my head to your symphonic cries as you inhale for the first time. I AM with you hand in hand as you take your first steps. Although you have run towards jobs, relationships, material items, and other idols, I AM with you waiting in joy for the day when you will turn back towards Me. And I AM with you to guide you as you transition from this plane of existence to the next. I AM with you yesterday, I AM with you today, and I AM with you tomorrow because I know no bounds and My power cannot be contained by your universal laws; therefore, when I whisper that ‘All is well’, I do not speak to you with a lack of understanding. No I speak to you out of love with all knowledge, wisdom, and understanding! Follow Me, and I will make your path straight. Lean on Me, and I will establish your way. Remove all doubt from your mind and stay persistent in your movements, and then there won’t be anything that will be able to stop you because I have made you, My child, in My Image. Hold tight to your faith and keep pushing!”
