Spirit of Unity Church Meta-Musing ~ Waiting to Exhale
Philippians 4:6,7
 Have no anxiety about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 
And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will keep your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Blessings to you!

As I flipped through the television guide, I noticed one of my favorite movies would be showing. The movie is "Waiting to Exhale." Isn't it funny how some movies we can watch and enjoy and never watch again, while others call us to watch every time they are on? What does the story tell us about ourselves? For me, "Waiting to Exhale" is right up there. It could be the message can inspire you, too! If you want to know more, read on!
Waiting to Exhale tells the story of four seemingly successful African American woman who have everything,  except successful relationships with men. Each waits for the moment when, secure in a relationship, they can exhale.
It is not necessary to be African American, looking for a relationship, or even a woman to relate to the chronic "waiting game" we all seem to play. So much of our lives are spent holding our breath and waiting. We are waiting for whatever we believe will make us safe, secure, and serene. We want to breathe easy; relax, let go. 
Oftentimes we, like the heroines of the movie, compromise what we most want in our heart and soul, in an attempt to force the hand of secure the relationship, job, status, whatever. But when we do this, we can only have a poor imitation of our true desire, and a false sense of security that will soon leave us, along with the opportunity to exhale in quiet confidence.
So, what can we do? We can relax, release, let go and KNOW that God is in charge. There is no need to wait to exhale. As we immerse ourselves, with quiet confidence, in the images, tastes, feelings or the deepest desires of our hearts, we magnetically draw to us the circumstances that will lead to the fulfillment of our desire.
To fret over what is not manifesting, only affirms its lack in our lives. As the Bible character Job states, "That which I most greatly feared has come upon me."
Today, whatever is up in your life, relax. Exhale, and then breathe in the precious essence of Spirit. Breathe in life, energy, peace. BE in the present moment. Not yesterday. Not tomorrow. Not 5 minutes from now. BE. You do not need to wait to exhale and feel secure. Feel secure in knowing that God will take care.
