Breath of Life: Christian Mindfulness Meditation

“And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.”
—Genesis 2:7

Sit in silence,
bringing all awareness to your breath.
Breathe in
and breathe out.
Be here and nowhere else.
Be in the present and no other time.
Be one with your breath.
Breathe in
and breathe out.
Notice your inhale, filling your body with love.
Notice your exhale, ridding your body of tension.
Don’t try to control it,
just experience it.
Breathe in
and breathe out.
Enjoy the profound simplicity.
The breath of life given to you by God.
Every breath you take
is a miraculous moment with our Creator.
Each act of breathing
is a connection to eternity.
Don’t take this for granted.
Enjoy the gift you’ve been given.
The breath of life that sustains you every day.
Each inhale is another chance to do something good.
Each exhale is another reminder to express gratitude.
As your breathing gets deeper,
allow yourself to sink deeper into relaxation.
Rest in the comfort that God is with you.
He is always watching over you,
protecting you
and carrying you through the rough times
on the all-powerful winds
of His everlasting love.
The breath of life.
Thank You, God in Heaven,
for this wonderful gift.
Stay here, focused on your breath,
and meditate on this everyday miracle
for as long as you need to.
Blessings and peace be with you.
