“Every Time I Breathe”—Then Sings My Soul Saturday

Then Sings My Soul Saturday

How often do you have quiet, still moments with nothing to think about but God and how good he is?

Not often enough? Me, either.

Life is a crazy mix of quiet moments and loud moments and confusing moments and contented moments.

We need God in all those moments.

This song speaks to me about seeing God’s provision all the time, every time I breathe.

Knowing You is everything.

Every Time I Breathe
Big Daddy Weave

I am sure all of heaven's heard me cry
As I tell You all the reasons why
This life is just too hard

But day by day
Without fail
I'm finding everything I need
And everything that You are
To me

Every time I breathe You seem a little bit closer
I never want to leave
I want to stay in Your warm embrace
Oh basking in the glory shining from Your face
And every time I get another glimpse of Your heart
I realize it's true
That You are so marvelous God
And I am so in love with You

Now how could I after knowing One so great
Respond to You in any way
That's less than all I have to give
But by Your grace I want to love You not with what
I say
But everyday
In a way that my life is lived


Wrapped in Your mercy I want to live and never leave
I am held by how humble
Yet overwhelmed by Your majesty
Captured by grace and now I'm finding
I am free
You are marvelous God
And knowing You is everything

we love big daddy weave as well as this song. We sometimes just need to step out of ourselves and look around at all he does for us

These words caused me to consider that every breath I take is a gift from God. How I want to grow in that intimacy with Him. Thank you Lisa for sharing this song today; another one I'm not familiar with but enjoyed. :)

Blessings and love,

Love this song! I started listening to contemporary christian music a couple of years ago when we moved from the city to the country. WOW, what I have been missing.

Blessings Lisa... Glad you shared the words so I could think of which song this is...since I don't know Big daddy Weave because the video says: "The video contains content from WMG, who has blocked it in your country on copyright grounds"...hmpf! ohhh well...that's what I get for leaving USA to Mexico...(lol)

The opening lines sound like a prayer from me...
I love all the lyrics, especially the chorus,but these stand out for me:

Wrapped in Your mercy I want to live and never leave!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am held by how humble Yet overwhelmed by Your majesty
Captured by grace and now I'm finding
I am free

Thank you Lisa for sharing this meaningful song & your "moment" words were so heartfelt and true. I'm thankful that I have many moments like those you described but in my solitude, I can reflect and hold on to how GREAT GOD is and even realize that my every breathe is due to His Grace. Indeed, I am humbled by His aMazing Grace!

I was reading from the Word just a few moments ago and as I read these words, I thought of you. I hope they encourage you in these difficult days.

Psalm 84:5-7 "What joy for those whose strength comes from the Lord, who have set their minds on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem. When they walk through the Valley of Weeping, it will become a place of refreshing springs. The autumn rains will clothe it with blessings. They will continue to grow stronger,
and each of them will appear before God in Jerusalem."

Thanks so much for the verses. Yes, they do encourage me. I appreciate you sharing them here.
