This week’s  Five minute Friday prompt word is breathe. You can join in the fun here: https://fiveminutefriday.com  As a writing community we write for 5 minutes(ish) no perfection or edits, the words just flow. #fiveminuteFriday

I originally wrote and published this in September last year when as a family we were going through some challenges. God is good and we are over that now. When I saw the prompt word for FMF today. I thought of this and decided to reblog.

Breathe:

Breathe
Breathe in slowly                                

Feel your rib cage rise
Close your eyes
Breathe out
Pause


Open your eyes
Pause
Breathe
You can do this


Heaven is sending it’s Angels
Stand firm, your rock is with you
Take his hand
Breathe


Close your eyes
The arrows won’t hit you
Fear can’t touch you
Breathe


Stand firm squeeze his hand tighter
Look doubt in the eyes and say Hallelujah
Say it clearly do not quake
Say it louder

The enemy is circling
Breathe
Raise your arms
Sing louder
Breathe


Let your rock hold you
Let every drop of his precious blood free you
Breathe


Let it soak into your being
Release your doubt stand firm in his promises
Relief is coming

Look at the vast army fighting for you
Remember the promises
Let your praise rise
Louder
Breathe


You are loved
Pause
Breathe
You are worth the fight
Pause
Breathe

Your rock is with you
The battle may be raging but the war is over
It is finished
Nothing more can be done
Breathe

Stand firm in his promises
Breathe
Trample on the doubt
Sing louder
Stand strong
Fear is gone
Breathe

Pause
Let peace rise
Let joy burn within
Let hope have control
Breathe

Believe
God is with you
God will never leave you
Breathe

He leads me beside still waters.

  1. I am glad you did repost as it is beautiful!
    “Stand firm in his promises
    Breathe
    Trample on the doubt
    Sing louder
    Stand strong
    Fear is gone
    Breathe.”

    Because of His promises to us, we can breathe!

  2. Lovely work.
    I need Him to hold me now,
    to stay and never leave.
    I need Him to show me how
    to hope, for I can’t breathe.
    I need Him to take my heart
    in His gentle hands,
    and while cancer tears apart,
    say He understands.
    I need Him to soothe my fevered
    brow with cooling grace,
    and to somehow be delivered
    from what I have to face.
    I need not to be denied,
    for, my Lord, I’m terrified.

    1. Andrew that is so moving. I was writing my response and I had the word favour strongly in my head for you. I have no understanding of what you are going through I can only imagine, but strongly feel God is holding your hand and you find favour in God’s eyes so much.

  3. Isn’t it sweet to be able to look back and see how God has led, supplied and held us up so we could breathe?! What a wonderful testimony!
