The song, "Breathe" came about as song writer and worship leader, Marie Barnett was leading worship and simply started singing words of the realization of how Jesus was everything to her and how she desired to hear His words for life. Barnett says, "The longer I’m a Christian, the more desperate I am for God."
This version of Breathe, performed by Michael W. Smith is one of my favorite worship songs. I cannot remember a time when I have sang this song and not become overwhelmed by the goodness and comfort of the Holy Spirit.
The time came when the Lord God formed a man's body from the dust of the ground and breathed into it the breath of life. And man became a living person.
Genesis 1:7 (Living Bible)
