Breathe Deep

“Breathe deep.

Breathe deep the breath of God”

From “Breathe Deep” by The Lost Dogs.

Sometimes we just need to pause.  To stop.  To catch our breath.

Sometimes we need fresh perspective.  Sometimes we need to see ourselves as we really are.  At other times we need to see that God wants to make something beautiful out of something broken.

When I read the gospels, I see that Jesus didn’t spend his time particularly with those who considered themselves righteous.  He didn’t seem to have all that much time for organised religion.  His heart seemed to be with the lost, the marginalised, the “sinners, tax collectors and prostitutes”. 

Do we really believe that God loves everybody?  Do we really believe His grace is sufficient?  Do we really recognise that we were pitiful, blind, wretched and poor without Him – or were we quite self sufficient?  Do we feel that we have messed up too many times to come back?

This one’s for all of us.
