Be Who You Are / The Wind Blows Where it Wishes - Part 1

An encouragement for you to be who you are, not someone else, and to go freely wherever the wind (Spirit) blows.


  1. Joel, You are hilarious! I loved your coffee cup saga.

    I know this is an older post but I’m trying to get caught up. However, it seems that my timing was perfect. Just this week I had a bit of a pity party because I felt like I wasn’t doing enough. One of my friends was describing all that he was doing and I began thinking about the gifts that I have that are just sitting there not being used. Some of the things that I’m doing right now are things that I don’t particularly enjoy doing but it does seem like it’s what God is doing in my life right now and it actually is going well. However, what I really love doing, I don’t get a chance to do.

    Most of the time I’m okay but . . . sometimes, it does bother me. Fortunately, the downer doesn’t last long and the next day I was up again.

    Learning to give up my expectations and following God’s plan has been hard at times. Your video was a great encouragement. Thanks for sharing and being the wild man that you are.

  2. Yep, I've been through all of that and am going through some of it right now. Many times I wish I had more time to be doing certain other things, and it bothers me from time to time that I don't get as much of a chance as I'd like to do the things I really love doing. But yet, right now my life does seem to be the way the wind is blowing, so I'm remaining as content as I can be in the circumstances.
