Breathe....and Worship

A recent facebook post really has me thinking...

And I have also been thinking about a post from Ann Voskamp's Blog A Holy Experience
And our every breath is a murmuring of His name, YWHW.

“The letters of the name of God in Hebrew… are infrequently pronounced Yahweh. But in truth they are inutterable….

This word {YHWH} is the sound of breathing.

The holiest name in the world, the Name of Creator, is the sound of your own breathing. That these letters are unpronounceable is no accident. Just as it is no accident that they are also the root letters of the Hebrew verb ‘to be’… God’s name is name of Being itself.”

~Rabbi Lawrence Kushner

She’s inhaling now, soft whistle breath calling Him, her very existence an unceasing invitation for Him to come. And she exhales, breath returned to Him, a circular ventilation of the soul. YHWH. YHWH.

Breathe — and call the name of Being Himself. Keep breathing — and pray without ceasing.

This is how to labor over your child, your life: breathe, inhale prayers, exhale prayers, breathe. YHWH. YHWH.

I find myself thinking about the Lord as I am breathing...usually pronounced Yahweh...I inhale...Yah...exhale...weh...and it gets me thinking about what I would like my life's focus to be...Worship...

Keep Breathing and let your life be filled with Him. When things are HARD...YHWH...when there is great Joy...YHWH...when you are irritated, or sleepy, or scared...YHWH...Worship...count your gifts...Praise...Breathe...
