With each breath I breathe, I am aware of God's peaceful presence.

To enter into a time of meditation, I relax my body and take a few deep breaths. I become aware of God's peaceful presence. The rhythm of my breath becomes steady and even.

Breathing in, I envision my soul filling with the spirit of God. Breathing out, I release any anxiety or dissatisfaction. Thoughts of peace, images of peace, give way to a deep serenity that expands into every cell and organ of my body. I rest in the silence.

When I return my attention to the activities of the day, the peace I feel within reflects in every word I speak and every action I take. Nothing can disrupt the serenity I carry within me, for each breath I breathe is filled with God's peaceful spirit.

He breathed on them and said to them, "Receive the Holy Spirit."--John 20:22
