Shaped by the wind,
the snow drift
takes many forms.
Letting the spirit shape you rather than being shaped by societal pressures makes you into an individual. No longer a cardboard copy of a societal norm, you breathe freely. No longer a societal parrot, you speak freely. Unshaped by the world, your creative spirit writes with abandon: wild . . . free.
Born of a winter storm, you embrace its fierceness, writing with a sword rather than a pen. “. . . the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God” (Ephesians 6:17, KJV). And Jesus said. “I came not to send peace, but a sword” (Matthew 10:34, KJV). Write the sharp truth with words shaped by the Spirit. Breathe the seeds of new life into the world.
Pneuma is the Greek word for spirit which in a biblical context means the breath or wind of life emanating from God. Ruach is the Hebrew word meaning spirit or wind. “And the Spirit [wind] of God moved upon the face of the waters” (Genesis 1:2, KJV). In this context, we are all shaped by the wind.
As the wind moves across the waters, move your pen across the page, creating new worlds for the edification of your readers. Teach through your uniqueness, your daring, your light. Be bold; embrace creation.
