I’m not real faithful in everything, but there are some things that I’ve remained extremely consistent in doing. For example, I have been breathing consistently for quite a while now. I don’t mean to brag, but I’m pretty good at breathing. I’m in the Major Leagues of breathing. An All-Star, actually.
Here is the award winning pattern for breathing that I have developed: Inhale…Exhale…Repeat. I think it’s catching on – I’ve met a lot of other people who are breathers just like me. I’m a trend setter. Mark my words: Breathing is the next big thing. Anticipate seeing Breathing Groups on Facebook. (You may want to consider joining.)
Pardon my arrogance, but I am so good at breathing that I can even breathe without having to think about it. I like to think of it as a “gift.” When it comes to breathing, I’m special. I owe my success to nonstop practice – without fail, I have been breathing for 42 years, 4 months and 16 days. And still counting.
I’ve been studying the life of a guy in the Bible who had his own mad skills. This guy – Enoch – “walked with God.” Get this: He walked with God consistently, everyday for 300 years(!).
Like I said, I’m great at breathing every single day, all day. But walking with God is an area of personal inconsistency. I’m struggling my way through the minor leagues of this whole “walking with God” thing, hoping and praying that maybe I will practice long enough that, like Enoch, I get called up to the “Majors” (Genesis 5:24).
I want to be just as consistent in my walk with God as I am breathing. How ‘bout you?
