Watching some of the Olympics reminds me of how important disciplined breathing is to the competitors. Sometimes in the ministry we need to take a deep (cleansing) breath to enable oxygen to do its thing in our brains. When we do, clear heads can be a constructive outcome.
Having an issue with a fellow believer? Is it taking on larger than life proportions? Take a deep breath, commit the person to the Lord and move on. Hallelujah!
John 20:22 (MSG)
22 Then he took a deep breath and breathed into them. "Receive the Holy Spirit," he said.
