Breathe It In! When I got the text from around the world I was overwhelmed with emotion. It was as if I could feel their experience through these next five very simple words. My first thought was "just breathe it all in".
Our children had just spent the last ten months in a flat tailspin. Can You Imagine ten Months Living out of suitcases? Imagine sleeping in a different bed, different house, different state several times over, within that ten months. Imagine not knowing what the answers would be; concerning if, or when, you could go home. Imagine putting your dreams on hold and trusting God to create better ones. Trusting the unseen and unimaginable to be true. This was my though, my prayer wrapped up in one word, Breathe! Breathe the fresh fall New Zealand air, as you walk out of the most awaited plane arrive. Breathe in the passion God has prepared for you to imbark upon. Breathe in the power given to you by the Holy Spirit. Breath out the exhaust of the last ten month's of hard work and prayer to get there. Breathe.... Breathe .....Breathe. God used you every step of this journey , grew you through every experience, prepared you for this time. Now just breathe it in.
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we can ask or imagine. Eph. 3:20-21
Breathe this in and live the long awaited work God has prepared for you before time began. Breathe! All this came to me after reading three simple words my son had texted me. "We made it!"
