Breath and Beat

Stop for a moment

and notice each breath you take


Put your hand on your heart

and feel it pulse


Life within you

given by God


Each breath a gift

each heartbeat His to give


You are alive


Are you alive in Him?

Or are you merely existing?


Does His heart beat in you?

Does the Life-Giving Spirit breathe in you?


– Susie Stewart


His speech shaped the entire cosmos.
Immersed in the practice of creating,
all things that exist were birthed in Him.
His breath filled all things
with a living, breathing light—

– Acts 17:28 (NIV)


God formed Man out of dirt from the ground and blew into his nostrils the breath of life. The Man came alive—a living soul!

– Genesis 2:7 (MSG)


For the Spirit of God has made me,
and the breath of the Almighty gives me life.

– Job 33:4 (NLT)


He Himself gives life and breath to everything, and He satisfies every need.

– Acts 17:25 (NLT)


I will give them a new will—an undivided heart—and plant a new spirit within them; I will remove their cold, stony heart and replace it with a warm heart of flesh.
