The Holy Spirit is the breath of God—“the Lord, the giver of life.” In our hectic lives, it’s easy not only to take the Holy Spirit for granted, but even to take our daily breaths for granted.
Dear Holy Spirit, my life is a glorious gift,
every automatic breath a sign of your love sustaining me.
It’s by your grace that I am alive,
and by your hand that my body breathes 20,000 times each day.
Let me never forget that.
Set the alarm on your phone to remind you at least three times throughout this day to stop and concentrate on your breathing. Try to pay attention for a full minute. As you breathe in fill your heart with gratitude; as you breathe out relinquish any tension you are holding.
