Let Go Let God Exhale

I release what no longer serves me.

My lungs have a finite capacity. So to inhale more air, I must first exhale. Breathing is a continuous process of receiving and releasing. It exemplifies the ongoing ebb and flow of life. Exhaling and inhaling are essential for human life. As I exhale, carbon dioxide is released, which sustains other life forms. I breathe out what no longer serves me so I can take in the life-giving oxygen I need. All life is nourished by releasing the old and opening to the new. Today I contemplate what I am willing to release and what I am willing to embrace; what I am willing to give and what I am willing to receive. I open to the ebb and flow of life.
The Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life.—Genesis 2:7
