Breathe

Take it easy- just slow down
Let the room stop spinning and banish that frown…
Breathe in and slowly let it out
Figure out what life is about…

With jam-packed lives and worn-down nerves
We fail to give Him what He deserves.
Forgetting that we are the ones with the debts to pay
Our scorn and opinion we’re quick to give away.

And since when was life not to be fulfilling?
There’s joy and peace for those who are willing.
Let it go- just shrug if off like a winter coat in July
Throw down your burden and let out a relieved sigh.

It’s not all in your hands-
And worry is endless shifting sands;
Stop trying so hard to do it yourself
Just take your priorities and put them on a shelf

Zeal is good, but only to a point;
Not when it gets your spirit out of joint
Breathe in and slowly let it out…
Find the One whom life is all about…

Had a great weekend at the retreat- now it’s back to work, but this time, it’s going to include some peace of mind.

10 “Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.” ~Psalm 46:10

Matthew 6:25-34.
