Deep breath in, out and up 

Here is a poem that I wrote for the Church that I am part of in Biggleswade. They asked if I would lead a Church week-end away on the themes of: up, in, out. These three dimensions in balance insure a healthy Christian walk. Up (worship and devotion) In ( Fellowship and building relationships together) and Out (Doing the stuff that Jesus commands us to go and do.)

Deep breath in, out and up

If I just stop. Wait. Stop. Wait. Think. And breath
Deep breath in, and long breath out and all hubbub leave
Now, if I just stop, and breathe and take a mo
Take stock, shock my jumbled mind and say business get lost, go
Then what will I hear, who is it, that my breath is tenderly caught
That makes me sigh with relief, as peace is dove like brought.

If I just stop. Wait. Stop. Wait. Think. And breath
Deep breath in, and long breath out and all nonsense push off, leave
Make space, clear the decks of crap that clings
Hear the voice of the One who rejoices and sings
Over me, calming me, soothing me lullaby
Causing me, to shift my eyes to the morning star on high.

If I just stop. Wait. Stop. Wait. Think. And breathe
Deep breath in, and long breath out and all insecurities just leave
Then I see, where I truly have been heavenly seated placed
Royal, commissioned, ambassador status upon my head graced
Then I look out and see my task, achievable, adventurous, hand in hand
Then, why should I, would I, could I breathless fret, when every breath is planned.
