10-23-2016 – Breathe In and Out: Don’t Hold Your Breath
Jovan Barrington

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 – Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

Philippians 4:4 – Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice.

Suffering is the commentary on your pain.

“The harder you try not to think of anything, the more aroused your mind will become and you will think even more.” St. Teresa of Avila

Be still to hear God’s will.

Scripture based prayers. Look for small verses of comfort or that will calm you down. Remember them and repeat them as you exhale.

Breathe in, and as you exhale, repeat the prayer (i.e. Do not quarrel along the way; Not as I will, but as You will.)

Taking three breaths can calm you and bring you closer to God.
