Breathe In, Breathe Out

May 22, 2013

How old were you when you held your breath to prove a point?

I remember doing that with my parents.  Once.

With a dramatic and huge inhale, I was gonna show them.  They glanced at each other and I saw some look pass between them but I didn’t understand what it was.  All I knew was that holidng my breath wasn’t working out the way it did in cartoons.

That explosion was my breath as I exhaled.

I began breathing normally.

They went back to what they’d been doing.

If I recall correctly, at least one of them was trying not to laugh.

God has made us our physical bodies “fearfully and wonderfully” says Psalm 139, and part of that includes the necessity of both inhaling and exhaling.

Frequently.

The same is true for us spiritually.  We are supposed to inhale and exhale God’s Holy Spirit.  Many Christians are great at inhaling the breath of God but horrible at exhaling.

Don’t hold the Spirit, the breath, the wind, of God — exhale!

What might that look like for you today?
