Exhale...letting it go, letting it out. I read the word and I did physically let out a breath. Permission. Just let it go. Let it bust at the seams, let it all fall apart, let it shatter into a million pieces. Exhale is followed by inhale. The letting go, the emptying out the clearing of the way has to happen for the intake, for the new, for the bringing in of fresh and life giving and filling. I'm in a place of exhale. I feel a bit hollow and deflated. The emptying. And after thinking on this for a bit..well, my verse this morning, the one He's been whispering all week settled in and I knew. Deep breath out baby girl.....now take a deep breath in....Thankful.
But forget all that—
it is nothing compared to what I am going to do.
19 For I am about to do something new.
See, I have already begun! Do you not see it?
I will make a pathway through the wilderness.
I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.
Isaiah 43: 18-19 NLT
