So what do we do with these days? We seek God. Don’t have time for quiet time with God? Just try this. Just before you go to bed go to a quiet place for just a few minutes and just breathe. Take slow and deliberate breaths. Breathe In. Breath out. Breathe in. Breathe out. But here is the trick. As you breathe in and out recall the scene in John 20. This is the scene where the disciples are behind locked doors because they were afraid of the Jews. Then all of a sudden Jesus appears before them and says “Peace be with you (John 20:19).” Then is does something odd; he breathes on them. And as he breathed on them he says “Receive the Holy Spirit (John 20:22).” He actually breathed that breath of God on them. And, when he did they were filled with the presence of God and the peace of God.
As you breathe in and out remembering that scene, imagine Jesus breathing on you. Let the peace of God fill you, and know that no matter where you are or what has happened that day God is with you. And, then go get some rest.
