Breathe

Bitterness, fear, anger, insecurity can surround my heart at such a level that I can’t see, can’t move.

And yet I hold onto it.

I lash out at those who would try to take them from me.  My wife, my friends, my church.  My God!

Then a moment comes, an event or circumstance comes and I stop.  And I find myself in His presence. 

Nothing changed except that I just wanted to sit with Him, stay with Him.  Not to yell at Him or ask Him to change who I am or what has happened.

And I started to breathe.

  1. Beautiful, Matthew. Thank you! Sometimes negativity can be addictive. Choosing to sit in His presence and “breathe” gives us time in that “eternal pause” to take in oxygen instead of toxic fumes!
