A Little Meditative Exercise

Deep breath in... Deep breath out...

"Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you." - 1 Peter 5:6-7 ESV

Mercy and love come in with the air and anxieties get exhaled.

It is a true meditative state. We don't empty our mind. We focus our eyes on Heaven and purposely relax with God.

It's easy to worry. It's like breathing without thinking about it. It just happens. Things have been set in motion but will the details all fall in place? What about this and what about that? Is the gift going to get there in time? Will they like it?

Deep breath in... Deep breath out...

Do the next thing.

Anxiety paralyzes.

Casting our care oxygenates our soul and spirit.
