Just Breathe

Spirit of God,

Sometimes it’s hard to breathe,
in and out,
as if something in my body resists
the way breath moves inside me,
blocked by exhaustion
or resentment
or disappointment.

Help me to just breathe,
to settle my body in its space,
to let the air fill my lungs.

Help me to expand
with the breath
and be open
to your possibilities,
to your healing,
to your love.

Help me to
just breathe
and rest in you.
