Path of the Wind

As you do not know the path of the wind, or how the body is formed in a mother's womb, so you cannot understand the work of God, the Maker of all things.

         Have you ever wet your finger and held it up in the air to tell which way the wind was blowing?  Yeah, I can't tell either.  I can't tell you the time by looking at the sun either.  If I get lost in the woods, it's up to you to find me because it all looks the same to me.
         The same is true for where God will lead us on our journey's path, we don't know where He'll take us.  Without His guidance, we wander around lost in circles.  We hit the same stumbling blocks and dead ends over and over.  We often get frustrated with ourselves for repeating the same mistakes. 'Lead, follow or get out of the way' is how we often express our lack of direction and impatience when we depend on the world's leading, instead of God.
        When we surrender our will for His, the path seems to make more sense with time.  Even if you don't understand, you can trust that He is working for your good.
