The reading through of 2 Timothy brings it to mind…

 All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching,
for reproof, for correction and for training in righteousness,
that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 ESV

Scripture…
the Word… 
breathed out by God…
the place we find inspiration… 
for life…

Do you see it…?

He breathes it out…
we breathe it in…
inspiration…

We breathe in His breath when we spend time in His Word… meditating by the power of the Holy Spirit…

He breathes out…
we breathe in…
inspiration…

His Word gives us life…
like the air we breathe…
in… out…

The difference…?
His Word…
breathed in…
gives eternal life…

Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life;
whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life…
John 3:36 ESV

Breathe Him in…
live life…
inspired…

Father God… let me feel Your breath…
breathing out Your Word… in my life…
