Death by Appointment.

Job 30:22-23

22 • You lift me up on the wind;

• you make me ride on it,
and you toss me about in the roar of the storm.

23 • For I know that you will bring me to death
and to the house appointed for all living.

Even though the wind goes where it wants to, and a journey on the wind would be full of disorientating turbulence and contrary motions, in the end the one lifted up in the wind would return to earth with a bump. So it is that life seems so disordered and life in crisis even more so yet the inevitable end is death for 'it is appointed for man to die once …' [
Hebrews 9:27]
