Back to Basics: Breathe

This month our FOCUS is “BACK TO BASICS” and we’re covering everything that falls in the category of the foundational Truths of who you are!! Starting with the most essential thing: BREATHING!

A friend just asked “God is still writing your story, what are you most looking forward to seeing Him write”…

So this is where I tell you to BREATHE.

inhale exhale

Inhale. Exhale.

God hasn’t forgotten you and He didn’t design you and walk away, wiping His hands, shrugging His shoulders, mumbling ‘they’ll figure it out’. No, He’s right there fine tuning and shaping us everyday looking at what He designed seeing a reflection of Himself, calling us GOOD. Knowing that with each breath we take and every season of our lives there will be pruning and growth and newness and a shedding away of the unnecessary; He breathes on us like a fresh wind that blows away the staleness of life and restores our souls. He brings a refreshing rain that waters the seeds that were sown in the soil of our heart and He sends people across our path to tend to those seeds. He doesn’t leave us to write this ourselves!!!

So my kids started school today, as they got out of the car I couldn’t help but lose a bucket of tears that were splattered with joy, peace, patience, looooong suffering…

Every fruit of the spirit flooded my soul at once but not to mention the angst of the fruits of bitter roots. Watching them walk away into a new season of their lives was literally watching the faithfulness of God through some uncertain seasons of my own life.

Inhale. Exhale. God’s got it.

My kids are 18 months apart. I remember when we found out the youngest was coming. Shocked. Scared. Unprepared.

Inhale. Exhale. God never left us to write the story alone.

Today they started 10th & 9th grade. Inhale. Exhale. ‪#‎getinneractive‬ ‪#‎GodsGotIt‬ ‪#‎breathe‬ ‪#‎backtobasics

 

Where is God asking you to breathe? Where have you given Him permission to breathe a fresh focus on your life?

Jeremiah 31:24 God promises to satisfy the weary soul and every languishing soul will refresh.

Let’s get back to the basics friends and allow God to breathe on us for some refreshing!
