I just love this band…NEED TO BREATHE….they play with passion and I love their sound. They remind me of some other musicians I know! When you listen to them you can’t help BUT fall in love with Jesus. The words in this song talk about being touched by “something beautiful.”
The name of the band says it all to me- “need to breathe”. We all need to be aware of what we are breathing in and out. Are we taking God IN and then letting God OUT? Inhale…exhale…are we remembering who our Creator IS and what He has DONE?
God did it
Just by breathing….
At first his breathe spoke the world into existence- day after day He created something beautiful just by speaking. He saw that it was all GOOD.
But then He did something different- something beautiful- He picked up some dirt and he formed man. He held it, he touched it, he molded the dirt into a shape. In HIS image we are created. We are the shape of God. He counted the hairs on his head, placed each bone, tendon, muscle and ligament carefully in place, he put the fingerprints in his skin, and he fused Himself with humanity by placing His heart into man’s body. But wait-something is missing-ahhhhh….ooooh….there goes…thump……..thump….thump…thump..thump.thumpthumpthumpthump. The breath of God lives in man-pumping HIS blood through your veins! That’s LOVE.
Do you realize this? Do you believe that God lives in you? I hope so because I certainly do! Look at your hands-they are God’s. He placed them there. Look at your feet. They are God’s. He placed them there. Now take your hand and place it over your heart….do you feel that? That, my friend is GOD. He is alive and well and He lives in you! He IS what you breathe in and breathe out-even if you don’t realize it or believe it. I believe it for you.
A friend of mine told me that sometimes we have to have faith for others. God gives us people to pray for, to lift up, to encourage and to help along the way. We have all had those people in our lives. So, if you are reading this and you have no faith, or have lost your faith, I believe it for you. I believe that God is a miracle worker and that whatever you are going through today he WILL bring you through it. He will not let you drown. He WILL take you THROUGH it and he does give you people to help you along the way. I know that someone out there needs to hear this by the way God is working through my keyboard. There are times when I write and it comes on me like a storm and this is one of those times. So let me encourage YOU that you ARE something beautiful because you have been created in the image of God, by his very hands and with his very breath. He lives and breathes in you. You are a precious child of God and He loves you no matter what you’ve done, said or been through. He is always there. Always.
Never give up.
God saw that it was very good! And that means YOU!
