Dust in the Wind
Seeing the Sacred in the Secular

This week, we are inspired by the song, “Dust in the Wind,” by Kansas.

Do you ever feel the way these lyrics suggest, like dust in the wind? Like nothing lasts? Even those of us who had never thought about the brevity of life, had to have given it some serious thought this past year. 2020 – the year of COVID 19. The year when half a million Americans died from a worldwide pandemic. But COVID only brought into view that which has always been true–– we are mere mortals. We long to live forever, to live with some kind of purpose, to leave a lasting legacy, but we are like “dust in the wind.”

In Psalm 90, Moses prayed that God would teach His people to wisely spend their days living for Him. We can see how God teaches us to wisely spend our days living for Him.
