Just Breathe

Breathe in. Breathe out.

It’s all going to be okay.

 

Breathe in. Breathe out.

Nothing is impossible with God.

 

Breathe in. Breathe out.

You are under the shadow of His wing.

 

Breathe in. Breathe out.

He is hiding you in the cleft of the rock.

 

Breathe in. Breathe out.

You are safe.

 

Sometimes we need to be reminded that it’s okay to stop and breathe for a while.

Sometimes we need to be reminded that we are not the saviors of the story and do not need to carry the weight of that responsibility.

Sometimes we need to be reminded that God does not condemn us, and anything that feels like condemnation is not from God.

Sometimes we need to be reminded that the Gospel is beautiful. The Gospel encourages the fruit of; Love. Joy. Peace. Patience. Kindness. Goodness. Faithfulness. Gentleness. Self-Control. When we are not growing in these things, it is not the Spirit that we are listening to.

Sometimes we need to be reminded that God does not give us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and self-control.

Sometimes we need to be reminded that the victory has already been won through Christ and we do not carry the weight of responsibility for how things turn out.

Sometimes we need to be reminded that God’s grace is big enough for our situation, for our relationships, for our sin.

 

Breathe in. Breathe out.

 

God’s grace is easy. Comfortable.

God’s grace engulfs us, surrounds us, swallows us up. We can wrap ourselves in it like a warm blanket on a cold day. Best of all, it is already ours and it is free.

There is no such thing as too much grace. Grace begets relationship. Grace begets love. Grace begets safety. Grace begets truth. It all begins with grace.

 

Breathe in. Breathe out.

God’s grace is enough.
