Keep Breathing

If you exercise or participate in any athletic activities, you know the importance of breathing to keep oxygen going to the mind and body. We don’t really think about breathing, we just do it. But during physical exertion, we can become so focused on the activity at hand, our breathing becomes shallow. We need the reminder to take deep breaths and keep breathing.
“Make sure you’re breathing!”
It was during this reminder when I realized I need to think about breathing at other times as well.
I hope you’ll join me at 5 Minutes for Faith today to read the rest my devotion. If you do, will you leave a comment? I’d love to know you stopped by!

In Christ,
Laura

  3. Laura:

    This statement particularly resontated with me: "When my future looks uncertain…am I focused on the what-ifs? Or am I focused on breathing so I can think clearly and let God’s promises fill my mind?"

    As one who has often focused on the "what ifs", the Lord has been speaking to me about focusing upon Him and not on my situation.

    Thank you for this inspiring post.

    Blessings,
    Joan

    1. I have to remind myself all the time not to get caught up in the what-ifs, and it's still easier said than done. Joan, thank you for your visit and comment!
