Take a Breath

By on Mar 10, 2013


When you own your breath, nobody can steal your peace. – Author Unknown

If it feels like your life is travelling at the speed of light, take a breath.

If anxiety feels more familiar than peace, take a breath.

When deadlines, obstacles, and disappointments leave you exhausted, take a breath.

Some days are harder than others.

Some days it feels like hope is lost.

Some days it feels like love will never return.

Some days it feels like faith doesn’t stand a chance.

On these days, take a breath.

Take a breath, and be still.

Sit alone with your Creator.

Listen with your soul.

Know there’s a purpose for you greater than you can ever imagine.

Understand there are things that fight for your love and passion; but your Creator will give you the strength to keep going.

Today, I took a breath.

I sat alone with God.

He comforted me.

God told me He would fight through the anxiety with me.

He breathed into me.

Tomorrow when you are running and running; and doing and doing remember to take a breath.

Feel hope come back to you.

Sense love rush through your body.

See faith return stronger than ever.

When life becomes too hard to walk alone,

Take a breath.
