Breathing Life

Reflections for contemplative living

Today, I’m putting my laziness aside and listening to the voice of God who wants my temple to be cared for the way it was intended. A body meant for movement, love, and care, not abuse, judgment, and sloth. Where my physical core, my foundation is strong and allows for stability in the rest of my body. Today, I’m breathing in life.

I’m breathing out the old ways of thinking that lead to certain behaviors of achievement that sacrifices my physical well-being and getting things done. I’m letting go of the subtle messages that reinforce the mistaken message that everything else is more important than me. This is not who I am. 

When I catch myself breathing today, I will remember and contemplate that I am wonderfully and fearfully made.

Thank you, God, for loving me into being.
