Maverick City Music Lyrics

“Breathe”
(feat. Jonathan McReynolds & DOE)

[Verse 1] This goes out to the Worried
This goes out to the Stressed
Sorting out a Million Thoughts
Running through your Head

To everyone that’s waiting
For Better days Ahead
Tired, and Frustrated
And Living once I say
Please don’t Hold your Breathe

[Chorus] Just Breathe
Cause It is a Miracle we can Breathe
There’s Power in the Way
That we Breathe
Release your Heavy Burden
And Let everything
That has Breath Praise the Lord
This is why we have Breath
Praise the Lord

[Verse 2] Some Times
You’re in the Desert
Sometimes you feel the Pain
Sometimes he Calms a Storm
And sometimes he lets it Rain
Please Don’t Hold your Breath

[Chorus]
Just Breathe
This is a Miracle we can Breathe
There’s Power in the Way
That we Breathe
Release your Heavy Burden
And Let everything
That has Breath Praise the Lord
This is why we have Breath
Praise the Lord

Just Breathe
It’s a Miracle we can Breathe
There’s Power in the Way
That we Breathe
Release your Heavy Burden
And Let everything
That has Breath, Praise the Lord
This is why we have Breath
Praise the Lord

[Bridge 1] And I can Feel my Lungs
Taking Air again, Just Breathing,
I’m Breathing in Oxygen
And I can Feel my Strength
It’s coming back again
Breathing, Breathing in Oxygen

{ And I can Feel my Lungs
Taking Air again, Breathing,
I’m Breathing in Oxygen
And I can Feel my Strength
It’s coming back again
Breathing, Breathing in Oxygen } [x2]

I can Feel my Heart
There it goes again
It’s Beating, I’m Breathing Oxygen
I can Feel my Heart
There it goes again
It’s Beating, Breathing Oxygen

[Bridge 2]
I Will Bless the Lord
Oh my Soul
And all that is within Me
Yes, I will bless the Lord
Oh my Soul
And all that is within Me
I Will Bless the Lord
Oh my Soul
And all that is within Me
I’m Gonna Praise the Lord

If I Have Breath
I’m Gonna Praise the Lord
(Praise the Lord)
I’m Gonna Praise the Lord
(Praise the Lord)

So, Let Everything
That has Breath Praise the Lord
This is why we have Breath
Praise the Lord
Let Everything
That has Breath Praise the Lord
This is why we have Breath
Praise the Lord

[Outro]
I won’t use it to Complain
Won’t use it to Whine all Day
I have a Better Purpose
For my Breath
I am Breathing to Worship
I’m Breathing to Believe
I’m Breathing to tell my Testimony
Oh that’s why I Have Breath
This is why we have Breath
To Praise the Lord
Any other use of it is Beneath it
So Praise the Lord
Some of the ways that I’ve used it
I realized they weren’t Worth it
The Reason I’m Here Today
Is to Praise the Lord

Move On

2 Corinthians 6:16 - ... For we are the temple of the living God, just as God said, I will dwell in them and walk among them ... (NASB)

God Is On The Move

The text says you are the temple of the living God; as God has said, I will dwell in them, and walk-in them, 2 Cor 6:16. Notice that God walks in us. God is on the move.

The Spirit led Jesus Christ into the wilderness after His baptism, Matt 4:1. The angel of the Lord spoke unto Philip, saying, Arise, and go… to the Ethiopian eunuch, Acts 8:26-27. After the eunuch was baptized the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip and he was found at Azotus, Acts 8:39-49. As sons of God, we are led by the Holy Spirit, Rom 8:14. Jesus said to His disciples Follow Me, Matt 4:19. Mic 6:8 says what does the Lord require of you, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?

We’re On The Move

We’re on the go; we’re moving. Did you notice the words in these passages: led, go, caught away, follow, and walk? The Christian life is not a life of sitting still or just sitting around. Occasionally, we must be still and know that he is God, Ps 46:10. However, most of the time we’re on the go. Unfortunately, some Christians never board the train. They get saved and then never move on with God.

From the very beginning of the Bible, we see movement. The Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters, Gen 1:2. The Lord had said to Abram, “Leave your country, your people, and your father’s household and go to the land I will show you.

Imagine That You’re Traveling On A Train With The Lord

Picture this in your mind. You’re traveling through here on a train, with the Lord riding with you in your private compartment. You’re sitting in your seat with the Holy Spirit next to you and Jesus and the Father sitting across from you. You can have continual, unbroken fellowship with all three members of the Godhead while you’re traveling through this life. That’s true. You can have this kind of fellowship with Them.

Along the way, you make stops so you and the Lord can disembark to take care of His business. You get off when He gets off and you get back on when He gets back on because you’re walking with Him. You might witness to someone, or comfort someone, or teach someone, or help someone, and so forth. Then you return to the train, embark, and keep on moving.

You Can See Out The Window

From your seat next to the window, you can also see what’s outside the window while you’re traveling. When you see something that you want to look at more closely, you can slow the train down or even stop it. The Lord lets you determine whether you want to stop or keep on going.

Let’s say that you see something you lust after. You slow the train way down so you can closely examine the object. Suddenly, your thoughts, your eyes, and your attention are all drawn away from your traveling companions to what’s outside the window. It’s as if you have drifted outside without them. The lust of the eyes will do this to you. Movies will do this to you. Fantasies will do this to you. Imaginations will do this. Distractions will do this to you.

Don’t Slow The Train Down

What do you do? Don’t slow that train down. Keep going. Move on. And keep your attention on your traveling companions in your compartment, and not on the sights outside your window. Because the train keeps moving, that temptation will quickly pass by. The scenery will change. If you won’t slow the train down to look, you can just keep on going right past the temptation.

You know how train tracks have switches. Some people have switched their tracks, and their trains are stalled on a spur. They have stopped the train and they are stuck right there, going nowhere. Some people have switched their tracks and they just go round and round. They keep passing the same scenery and keep having the same lusts and temptations. As they go in circles, they keep revisiting the same events of their lives. They never move on. They’re just living life in a vicious circle. Switch the tracks and move on. There are lots of great things to still see and do.

Keep Going. Move On

Once you switch the tracks and get going again, those old temptations are in the past. Those old bad sections of the journey get further and further behind you. You move further and further away from them. They’re like the scapegoat in Lev 16:21-22. That goat goes to an uninhabited land in the wilderness with all those iniquities on him. They are far, far away from you.

Do you understand? The way to keep from getting stuck in lust or past misery is to keep the train moving. Stay in fellowship with your traveling companions and quit looking out the window all the time. You keep breaking off fellowship with the Lord every time you are distracted by what you see outside your train.

Conclusion: We are meant to move. Move on with the Lord. Only slow down when there is something that He wants you to see or something that He wants you to do along the journey.
