The Breath of God

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Saturday, September 08, 2012

A strong cold front blew through late last night and so we were able to open the windows this morning for the first time in what seemed like months. I sat in my chair and began my morning meditation period. I try to take ten minutes each morning to open myself to what is present inside of me andto the workings of God within me.

As I relaxed I became aware of a breeze blowing gently across my face and upper body and the thought rolled through my mind that within that breeze lie the breath of God. My inner self smiled a bit. I asked myself how many times Id shook my fist at heavens and asked God to show himself!!!

Hes been there all along, just as the scripture says, in the whispering of the wind.

Namaste

    So wonderful is our God! If we would just remember throughout the day to just listen and be aware of his presence....it could be a perfect day! You were "touched by Him" this morning.. What a blessing!
It is a reminder for me to start every darn day with Him.... you can't lose! emoticon

    So true. We are never still enough to realize that God is always present. We are too busy chasing things and when those things don't work out, we wonder where God is.

    Thanks, we tend to take so much for granted. I always have to remind myself to keep my ears open for God's answers to my prayers. When I think he is not listening, it is always me who has closed ears to his answer which may not be what I was wanting to hear.
