Heavy Breathing…

There must be empty…in order to fill.

Fill up with gas, fill out an application, fill an empty canvas with paint, fill our stomachs, fill the vacancy.

All start with empty….with a hollow space.

Our breathing reminds us of this. We exhale our breath within and our lungs deflate.  We inhale and our lungs expand.

We exhale to release…We inhale to increase.

In the desert we exhale letting go of all that stands in the way of union with the Lord.

We inhale His life, His grace, His love, His mercy, His will for our lives.

We inhale “Fiat”….”Let it be done to me according to Your Word.”

We exhale “surrender”…all that stands in the way.

Inhale “Fiat”….Exhale “Surrender”.

Inhale “Fiat”…Exhale “Surrender”.

Inhale “Fiat”…Exhale “Surrender”.

This is our heavy breathing while wrestling on our journey in the desert.

“Teach me to do your will, for you are my God. May your kind spirit guide me on ground that is level.” Ps 143:10
