The Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.  Genesis 2:7

Father God, you gave us the breath of life.  It is what gives us life.  In this breath you give us a heart, a soul.  You in us.  Renew my spirit today with this breath of life.  Help me to remember each deep breath comes from you.

I read this verse earlier this week and made a note in my journal to acknowledge God every time I took a deep breath.  Here's what resulted in my little challenge.

I took time to breath.

And each time I did I praised God for the breath of life.

There are many benefits to deep breathing including reducing stress, anxiety, even lower your blood pressure.

But when you do it and praise God for that breath it changes your attitude.  Not only did it change my outlook, I was aware of my interaction with God more times that day.  And that's a good thing.

Let's face it, life is busy and if you are like me it's coming lighting fast.  Slowing down is a good thing!  One I need to do more often.

What ways are your reminded of God through out the day?
