What in the world is a “holy sigh”?
Do any of you remember a movie called Waiting to Exhale that had Whitney Houston in it? In that movie the women were in all kinds of drama and at some point one of them talks about just “waiting to exhale” when all the drama dies down. That is close to what I am talking about with a holy sigh.
When my life is going 90-to-nothing and I have been too busy for God I find myself stressed out and needing something. Well, if I go to God in prayer I usually end up sighing. Not just sighing, but this deep, lung dispensing sigh that just seems to relax me to the soul and allows me to expose myself to my Maker. It is a great feeling. It is the weight of the world being absorbed by God and allowing me to realize that I am not in control. I love holy sighs.
Jesus said, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30
Does anybody else experience holy sighing?
