A Breath of Fresh Air

“Each day is a breath of fresh air from God – a time to celebrate all of God’s perfect gifts.”

I read this quote the day after hearing distressing news about a loved one. It came during a week that was blow after blow of sad and sometimes frightening circumstances.

A breath of fresh air! I wonder! I’m so angry at the circumstances of life and sad and every other conceivable emotion that it is hard to consider that this day is a breath of fresh air. And yet, I hear God say to me - I know. I know your anger and sadness and all the emotions flowing through you, and I will sit with you. And I ask not that you rejoice in the circumstances, but I ask that you rejoice in my presence. God is with me. On the mountain tops and in the valleys. When I sing with joy and when I wail in pain, God will not leave me. And that is something I can celebrate.
