dirt manThen the LORD God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being. Genesis 2:7 NIV

Pressures come in all sizes and angles. Some are imposed upon us from our work envirionment, school, friends or family. Some of our pressures have been created by our own choices. We either took on too much or delayed actions which now demand adjustments.

Most of the time when we begin to feel anxious, it causes our heart to beat just a little faster. In turn, we begin to take shorter breaths, which results in less oxygen flowing through our bodies. Some at this point begin feeling a little out of control. What can you do? Make a concious decision to breathe. Make it a slow and deep breath. Then voice a quick prayer and listen.

Johnny Diaz has recorded a song that captures this thought. I’ve included his lyrics and a link to the video.

Blessings Love y’all

 

BREATHE LYRICS

Alarm clock screaming bare feet hit the floor

It’s off to the races everybody out the door

I’m feeling like I’m falling behind, it’s a crazy life

Ninety miles an hour going fast as I can

Trying to push a little harder trying to get the upper hand

So much to do in so little time, it’s a crazy life

It’s ready, set, go it’s another wild day

When the stress is on the rise in my heart I feel You say just

(chorus)

Breathe, just breathe

Come and rest at My feet

And be, just be

Chaos calls but all you really need

Is to just breathe

Third cup of joe just to get me through the day

Wanna make the most of time but I feel it slip away

I wonder if there’s something more to this crazy life

I’m busy, busy, busy, and it’s no surprise to see

That I only have time for me, me, me

There’s gotta be something more to this crazy life

I’m hanging on tight to another wild day

When it starts to fall apart in my heart I hear You say just

(chorus)

Breathe, just breathe

Come and rest at My feet

And be, just be

Chaos calls but all you really need

(bridge)

Is to take it in fill your lungs

The Peace of God that overcomes

Just breathe

Let your weary spirit rest

Lay down what’s good and find what’s best

Just breathe

(chorus)

Just breathe, just breathe

Come and rest at My feet

And be, just be

Chaos calls but all you really need

Is to just breathe

Just breathe
