Day 179: Breathe (June 28)


I see myself walking through a field.  As I walk, my hands are open beside me feeling the tall grass and wildflowers tickling them.  This is a peaceful place and I am very aware of God’s presence there.  It seems as if the breeze carries His whispers, and the sun seems to pour out His affection upon me. I know in this moment how very loved I am.  It feels as if nothing in the world matters except this interaction with the Father.  He is the lover of my soul.

Today I am offering you a space to encounter the sweetness of a walk with God.

We’ve done similar things before, but I feel like it’s so important to be purposeful and just dwell in His delight.  He delights in you! Can you believe it?!  He also loves when we delight in Him.

So today, I’m going to leave you with some scripture and some time to take a breath.  To honor the Lord’s goodness and just spend time loving on the Father as He loves on you.

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the lord.  From the house of the Lord we bless you.  The Lord is God, and He has made His light shine upon us.  With boughs in hand, join in the festal procession up to the horns of the altar.  You are my God, and I will give You thanks; You are my God, and I will exalt You.  Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever.  Psalm 118:26-29

I love the Lord, for He heard my voice; He heard my cry for mercy.  Because He turned His ear to me, I will call on Him as long as I live.  Psalm 116:1-2

Lord, You have been our dwelling place throughout all generations.  Before the mountains were born or You brought forth the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting You are God.            Psalm 90:1-2

I will praise You, O Lord, with all my heart; before the “gods” I will sing Your praise.  I will bow down toward Your holy temple and will praise Your name for Your love and Your faithfulness, for You have exalted above all things Your name and Your word.  When I called, You answered me; You made me bold and stouthearted.  Psalm 138:1-3
