Learning to breathe

Have you ever been so overwhelmed, so worn out emotionally that you almost just turn into a zombie? I don’t know, maybe I’m just weird.
This past month has been one of the hardest in my life. I’ve had a lot of different hardships and just crap hit me. Emotionally, financially, and physically. And with all that, it effected me spiritually.

1 Corinthians 2:12-16

12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.

13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.

16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? but we have the mind of Christ.

Something that I believe God is trying to show me right now in my life is I cannot take my natural physical state as the real deal. I cannot let this junk that has been hitting my life take away from my relationship with Jesus. Compare spiritual things to spiritual things. Apples to apples.

And I think it comes like learning to breathe. When you’re born and emerge from your mother you scream and cry like a baby. But after a while you get the hang of this whole oxygen thing and you calm down.

When crap hits my life my first reaction into scream and freak out. Especial when more than one thing, from more than one area hits me. And I don’t know if this is helping or making any sense to anyone who may be reading this… But this sure helping me.

Just calm down. You screaming doesn’t change the fact that stuff is hitting you. Our hope, our peace, our joy is Jesus Christ. Take a breath and just learn to breathe.
