Breath out, breath in!
From our first cry, the brain stem keeps this life-giving function on auto-pilot. Most of the time, our exhalation occurs without awareness.
However, there are exceptions.
Imagine with me these situations and your awareness of the “exhale.”
Relaxing and releasing muscle tension
As much as we need oxygen, we also need to exhale the poison of carbon dioxide.
As much as we need to take in God’s Word, we need to exhale the poison of our sin nature.
Inhale His love.
Inhale His acceptance.
Inhale His mercy.
Exhale desires of the flesh.
Inhale His grace.
