Keep Breathing

Music has always been a huge part of my life. Since the time I can remember I have always loved music. Playing music, listening to music, making up songs, you name it! As I grew in maturity in my relationship with God in my teen years God really started speaking to me through music. Sometimes songs with words, sometimes just instrumental. I have found comfort in knowing that God give me songs whenever I need them. I recently happened upon a song that has been amazing for me. I now have it on my blog page as the first song and on my computer and I listen to it over and over and over again. As I write this post, it is playing in the background. As I said in this earlier post recently times have been harder for me. And honestly, sometimes I feel like all I can do is keep breathing. The reason this is so significant for me is because I am not someone who is usually ok with "just breathing". I usually feel the need to go go go and get things done and be busy and consume my life with so much busy. Often times even forgetting to stop and enjoy the small things, or just stop and feel. I would say I am someone who for the most part feels my emotions and knows my feelings. But I also know that it's easier for me to be busy and simply just not think of everything going on in my life. But as I have slowed down my life, I feel myself feeling more. And you know what, sometimes all I can do is keep breathing...and you know what? That's enough! I don't need to do more, or be busy, or change anything. Sometimes it's if all you can do is keep breathing.

I thought I would share this song with you. Some of you will understand...some of you will not. But that's ok. So if it's not already playing, click on the music player on the top right side of my page, it should be the first song in line. Sit back, listen, and keep breathing.
