Breath of God...

"...God, Who holds your breath in His hand..."
-Daniel 5:23

...Breathe in.......Breathe out.........

This world can be a suffocating place at times...Daily demands can feel like weights on our chest...The taskmaster of time can take its toll...others' expectations can stifle us completely.

But the God Who breathed breath of life into man, raising him from the dust, is living and breathing today, lifting us from lowground to highground...resuscitating us when we're starved for air, respirating our weary souls...

God's breath still beckons, desiring that we draw near, inviting us to inhale deeply.  He longs to fill our lungs with His life, He longs to be close enough to do so...

"He Himself gives to all mankind life and breath and all things."
-Acts 17:25

...Breathe in.......Breathe out.........



  1. Yes, I sometimes forget to just breathe in and out and listen for the still small voice of God. I confess that there hasn't been much time at all for that lately - we're on in fast-forward movement with all of the many end-of-school year activities amongst the normal every-day stuff as well.

  2. This was a breath of fresh air! Pardon the pun! Thank you so much for this. I am learning to slow down. Thank you so much for all your lovely comments. =)

  3. Hi Linda and Lani.....Wishing us all an "inhale" of a day.......

    God bless both you guys...

  4. This makes me think of the miracle of Elisha's bones!

    (what a great visual you found for this post!)

  5. This makes me think of that old Sandy Patti song, "Breathe on me breath of God". Do you know it? I love it!

  6. Hi Courtney, Hi Relyn : )

    Think I'll pop over to YouTube and check that song out, Relyn, thanks : )
