an honest prayer from in the storm

When the waves rise about me during a particularly fierce storm, I often look down to make sure my feet aren’t going to slip, instead of trying to ensure my head stays above water.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In those moments, I need to be more concerned about breathing than where I am headed.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌿Breathe out my worry, breathe in Your Presence.
🌿Breathe out my need, breathe in Your Provision.
🌿Breathe out my fear, breathe in Your Love.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Breath of Heaven, would You hold me together and pour over me Your patience as I wait out this storm? Release Your living giving breath within me, that I would let go of all striving and begin to thrive in the place You have for me to grow in and minister from as I walk in Your Kingdom here on earth?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
No matter the storm, I will keep my eyes fixed on You, Water Creator, Wave Tamer and Way Maker.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Call me to step out to where You will meet me, into the new freedom waiting beyond, on the other side of this storm.
