When we begin to feel the breathless threats of fear begin its attack, we need to breathe in God’s peace. It is available at any time of day or night. It may sound silly to some but I actually do take deep breaths of Him and breathe out fear, anxiety, and frustration. God is good. He is faithful to be our help in times of trouble. He is in full control, what do we have to fear with Him on our side?
Take a Deep Breath
Take a deep breath, breathe in God’s peace.
Blow out all the worry and fear, so faith is increased.
Do this a few times more,
And you will feel the strength of the Lord.
Now set your face to the future; stare it hard in the face.
State with conviction you are firmly in God’s embrace.
Redeem the extra time you have; wisely it spend,
Thinking and doing, what is good to magnify your God again.
Look around at God’s blessing and look within too,
Give thanks and praise for all He has done for you.
Allow the songs of salvation to flood your soul;
Assuring and proving God is in control.
Search the Scriptures with a heart willing to see,
The promises and provisions God has delivered to thee.
Take a deep breath; breathe in love, peace and power,
That allows you to live fully in the world’s troubled hours.
My words shall be of the uprightness of my heart:
and my lips shall utter knowledge clearly.
The Spirit of God hath made me,
and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life.
