it's Your breath in our lungs

IMG_0711Lately I have been listening to an album by "All Sons and Daughters."  I came across this group via a recommendation from my own two daughters.  They try to help me stay "current" when it comes to music.  I need and love their help.

There is a song on the album called, "Great Are You Lord" and the lyrics and the melody won't let me go.  I am particularly captured by the chorus:

 

It's Your breath in our lungs

So we pour out our praise

We pour out our praise

It's Your breath in our lungs

So we pour out our praise to You only

 

As I get older, I hate to admit it, but I am not doing very well at  keeping up with the current music and cultural trends.  I am a bit out of touch, but at the same time I am also realizing how precious each day of life is.  Every breath that I breathe is a gift from God and I want to be a good steward of that precious gift.  I want the breath in my lungs to be used to praise and proclaim the glory of God--the everlasting one, whose life, love, grace and hope will last forever.
