The Breeze that gently blows and moves –
He ministers with love and grace.
The Wind that rushes with great force –
Its gusts blow through and leaves its trace.

The Spirit undeniable.
He speaks and leads and works through us.
So we obey and use our gifts,
As in the Wind we place our trust.

Through us He teaches, ministers,
Supplies the needs of those around.
Encourages and intercedes.
Within the body, gifts abound.

The Wind supplies us with the words,
The talents and abilities
To give to others, lift them up,
To serve in love and meet their needs.

We’re sensitive and listening –
Depend upon the Spirit’s breeze.
Want others to be close to Him,
And so we follow Spirit’s lead.

When others then experience
The Spirit’s love and grace through us,
They see how much God cares for them.
In Him, they place a greater trust.

We’re blessed with opportunities.
Wind lives in us, our hearts are full.
His work through us to give and serve
Is nothing less than beautiful.

God gives many gifts to His people and it is great when we use them for His glory. A nice poem.
