A person's respiratory rate is the number of breaths you take per minute.
The normal respiration rate for an adult at rest is 12 to 20 breaths per minute.
Unintentionally, and definitely not consciously, I am guilty of taking for granted the miracle that God gifts to us each day. The miracle of waking up each day without complications, or even more, the beauty in being able to take your next breath without thought. And, even crazier, I slip sometimes into the routine of life and do not nurture my relationship with the One that gave me life -- eternally!!
Have you ever found yourself there?
Have you ever really thought about it?
There are so many people that struggle with things that we may take for granted and are fighting to survive every day. Surrender. Praise God for His Faithfulness. The reality remains that every breath you take is not because of how good we are, but is evidence of how faithful He is. Ask Him to open your eyes to see what he sees. Ask Him to break your heart for what breaks His, and to help you to see the blessings that He plants around you daily. Don’t wait until you are fighting for your life. God has shared the end of the story with us, we win, because of Him!
Father God, thank you for the things that we miss and the moments that happen without though. Lord, as we present ourselves fully to you, let our hearts beat to what You have called us to be, and let our feet move to Your beat. Lord, with each encounter with you, let our faith reflect Your Favor. Thank you, Lord, for Your presence in our lives. In all ways, we acknowledge You with honor and praise. In Your Son’s name. Amen.
