A friend gave me a devotional type book today. It was Monday morning and I was feeling overwhelmed by the week ahead. I opened the book and read this entry:
“Just breathe My Name. It is like the pressure of a child’s hand that calls forth an answering pressure, strengthens the child’s confidence, and banishes fear. Just breathe My Name.”
God Calling, A.J. Russell
I began to breathe in through my nose and out through my mouth slowly and purposefully, saying Je-sus in my mind and heart as I breathed. After a few repetitions, I was again focused on Christ – all that really matters. My heart rate slowed, and I had the peace to proceed through my day with Joy.
If you are feeling stressed, I recommend “breathing His Holy Name.” Enjoy the video – a song popular in the late 1990’s. Is it about Jesus? You be the judge!
