On 7/28/2017, while I was attending a conference on Mental Health, the ministry of “Wind Gust” was given birth. The morning of my birth, I was instructed to “be bound by the Spirit (Acts 20: 22 NLT),” “listen” to the Holy Spirit, and acknowledge, “that my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned to me — the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God (Acts 20:23,24 NLT).” God’s spoken word followed me to the conference.
The conference was a time of reflection and purpose. Reflection of my life experiences, in caring for people, with mental health issues/ concerns, in my workplace / community and reflection on how this learning experience was related to my relationship with God and my purpose, to bring the Kingdom of God into the hearts of man. While I was sitting and listening to one of the speakers, I remembered the night when I was alone in my game room, and the door that lead to the garage blew open, this was a strange event in my life, because the garage door was down. My question was how did this happen? That night I wrote the poem “A Friend,” speaking of the Holy Spirit. This enlightening moment, during the conference, birthed the thought “a divine gust of wind can transform your life.” “Wind Gust” is the ministry of the Spirit, born to tell the “Good News” of God’s grace.
