31 Days of Grace: Breathing in Your Grace, Breathing out Your Praise

31 Days of Grace
Day 9

A few months ago I had the opportunity to see Matt Redman, a wonderful praise and worship leader, perform live.  He kept mentioning a theme, a theme that runs through his songs and motivates his ministry.  It's the idea that as we live our lives and breathe in the grace God gives us, we have no choice but to breathe out His praises.  "Breathing in Your grace, breathing out Your praise".  Here are two of his songs in particular that ring out this very phrase:

(from "Your Grace Finds Me")

So I'm breathing in Your grace 
And I'm breathing out Your praise 
I'm breathing in Your grace 
Forever I'll be 
Breathing in Your grace 
And I'm breathing out Your praise 
I'm breathing in Your grace 
Forever I'll be 
Breathing in Your grace 
And I'm breathing out Your praise 
Breathing in Your grace 
For our God, for our God 




(from "Never Once") 

Every step we are breathing in Your grace
Evermore we’ll be breathing out Your praise
You are faithful, God, You are faithful
You are faithful, God, You are faithful



These songs powerfully display the fact that, even in the hardest times of life, God rains down His grace and our response should be thankful, humble praise.  

Never once did I ever walk alone ... His grace always finds me.  Amen.
