Breathe

I have been given inspiration for some new blog post ideas. One of those inspirations is writing about worship songs/positive songs. The song choice for today is a song call Breathe by Jonny Diaz. You can listen to it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hnjeMwxFuBA.

God knows how to put something on your heart when you need it. I woke up with this song on my mind and little did I know that I truly needed it today. God knew I needed this song today. Our morning got off to a really crazy start between vehicle issues, messes to clean up, everyone going a million miles per hour first thing, etc. I am sure many of you have had crazy mornings like ours where if one thing goes wrong, everything goes wrong. I am so thankful that God catches me when I am swamped by chaos and He will can catch you too.

Back to the song, I absolutely love this song.  This is the part I absolutely relate to:
"So much to do in so little time, it’s a crazy life
It’s ready, set, go it’s another wild day
When the stress is on the rise in my heart I feel you say just
Breathe, just breathe
Come and rest at my feet
And be, just be
Chaos calls but all you really need
Is to just breathe"

There is only so much a mom, dad, anyone can do in 24 hours and every morning it seems like all that I have to do hits me right when I wake up. I am reminded through this song to let God take everything and He will give me the energy and peace to get done what needs done. I just need to take a deep breath, breathe, and rest at the feet of God. When I am tired, I am so glad that God gives me rest when I need it during my day. He knows as a mom of four boys that I need my rest. I use my rest time to reenergize so I can continue with my day. Even if I don't nap I will read what God wants me to read in the Bible or I will color in one of my coloring books. After those simple and important things, I feel ready to tackle what the rest of my day holds.

What helps me to get through my tasks as a mom, wife, friend, etc. is knowing that God will take the chaos from my hands. I don't have to let the chaos consume me. Knowing that, gives me the peace I need to walk this life and journey that God has given me. If you are consumed with the chaos that life has, go to God and find rest in Him. Ask Him to give you peace over everything in your life and He will give you peace. Just remember to breathe. Here are some verses that I turn to as well.
