"Every Time I Breathe" ~ Big Daddy Weave

Have you ever experienced this ~  you sometimes hear a song over and over as you frenetically make your way through life, but never really HEAR the words on a deeper level?  As a person who is most often drawn to the words of a song & the depth of the message it carries, it always surprises me when I finally really HEAR a song that I've listened to, and even sung along to, countless times.

Last Friday night, our family went to the last Jacksonville Suns game of the season.  It was Family Faith night, and after the game, we were treated to fireworks and a concert by Big Daddy Weave.   My husband got off work late and we briefly considered changing our plans, but decided to go anyway.....because, after all, we're talking fireworks & a free concert!!  We arrived after the 4th inning, which worked out quite well for me...... I only had to sit through five innings ; ) , we ended up paying no parking fee, and we paid a discounted entrance fee ~ $12 for all five of us. =)  The five innings was enough for the kids and myself, and we still got to see the concert at the end.

The most valuable part of my night ~~  hearing and singing the words of this song for the first time with not just my ears, but with my heart as well ~  and then turning to see my 11 yr. old son singing them, too.....eyes closed and face lifted heavenward, every part of him worshipping with sincere praise to his Savior. ♥

I pray he never loses that love he has now and I pray, that as the song says, I will live the love I have for the Lord every day of my a gift of devotion and thankfulness to for His Grace and Mercy......and as an example to the ones He has entrusted to my care.

"Every Time I Breathe" by 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
In everything that You are to me
Every time I breathe You seem a little bit closer
I never wanna leave I wanna 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
Yeah, 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 wanna love You not with what I say but everyday
In the way that my life is lived
Wrapped in Your mercy I wanna live and never leave
I am held by how humble, yet overwhelmed by Your majesty
Captured by grace now I’m finding I am free
You are marvelous God and knowing You is everything

Thank you for bringing this song to my attention. I don't think I had heard it before. Or, if I had, it's message was lost on me. My eyes welled with tears as I read the lyrics. This is the cry of my heart.
