Five Minute Friday: "Breathe"

Oh, my God, I can't breathe.

There's too much trying to drown me to keep me from taking a deep breath.

This is the air I breathe...

I spoke with my mentor today and told him there's just too much--too many anxieties sucking the very air from my life.  So much pressure that I can't breathe, I can't rest.  No matter what I do, I feel like I'm doing the wrong thing.  I'm not sleeping well.  I feel like my life is stuck in neutral.

This is the air I breathe, Your Holy Presence living in me.
This is my daily bread.  This is my daily bread.  Your very word spoken to me.

Financial pressure, emotional pressure, health pressure, social pressures, pressures from the past haunting me, pressures for the future taunting me; so many constrictors slowly choking the very life from me every day. One more shift downward, and I drown.

And I--I'm desperate for you.  And I--I'm lost without you.

Dear Lord, please help me.  Please give me some room to breathe.

Oh, my God, I can't breathe.

  1. Hi there! Visiting you from the Five Minute Friday link up. I think we've all felt like that at some point-- the anxieties can overwhelm. Thanks for sharing. Love the lyrics to that song!

  2. I love that song! It's such a great reminder that He is the one who fills our lungs with breath and the only reason we have the ability to breathe. Praying you are having a fabulous day and learning how to more effortlessly breathe Him in during your hardest days. Blessings!!
