your breath in our lungs

It's Your breath in our lungs
So we pour out our praise

Wow--take a moment to enjoy the breath that is in your lungs! That was given to you by the Lord. This simple and moving lyric from the song 'Great are You Lord' by All Sons and Daughters has made a huge impression on my life. I'm unsure of the direct impression, as it could be because, prayerfully, the awe of what those lyrics truly mean.

God made something out of nothing! He made us out of the dust of the earth and the air from His lungs. He breathed His own life into us. Why would such a Creator do this? Because of His great love for us. Because He longs for a relationship with us.

In this truth, we find what praise and worship looks like--it should be every expelled breath from our lungs. Every moment of the day should be praise to Him.
