“He breathed on them and said to them “Receive the Holy Spirit.”
John 20: 22
Breathe on me, Lord.
I need your sacred sigh into my soul.
I am nothing without your air, your Holy Spirit.
Your breath instills life within me. Your breath sustains me.
All I can do, must do, is open and receive.
Never seen, but always present, the Holy Breath of God.
I inhale and your spirit swirls down into my lungs, awakening my every cell.
Even when I give back to you in exhale, my gift is composed mainly of you, with a little waste from me.
We became living beings by your breath.
We become pure, holy and loving by your breath.
We become more Christlike by your breath.
Sharing your breath brings me so close, so intimate, so fused, we become one.
May my every breath praise you, Lord.
Nancy Ruegg says
As I read your post, Jean, I became conscious of my physical breathing, and imagined breathing in more of the Spirit–his purity, holiness, love,and life. Thank you for providing me a quiet, meditative moment in the midst of a busy day of packing!
Hi Jean! This is such a perfect Pentecost post! “Spirit of the living God, fall afresh on me.”
We are visiting my daughter’s family, and it’s so windy here! Very appropriate for the day too. I pray that The Lord will pour his grace and power on you every day, and inspire you to good works of writing and speaking for him. Why wouldn’t he want to do that??
Blessings to you this feast day,
Lynn Mosher says
Oh, yes-yes! Amen!
The perfect post for this day of Pentecost, Jean! Blessings!
