Breath of Heaven

There is an incredible song by Amy Grant called, “Breath of Heaven” https://youtu.be/L8_475FKJWQ.  The song tells the story of Mary’s acceptance of her Eternal task of being the Mother of God and of all of the world.  At maybe 14 years of age, her Faith was so strong as to allow the Holy Spirit (the Breath of Heaven) to come into her Soul and give her both the seed, as well as the strength, to change all of our lives forever.  So, when the Breath of Heaven comes upon the Disciples after Jesus’ resurrection, it’s no small thing.  When we read the Acts of the Apostles, we learn about how this very “acceptance” of the Holy Spirit into our hearts, minds, and Souls enables us to do Miracles.  He makes ordinary people like you and I extraordinary.  While it is not easy to do the work of God, the choice is a simple one – yes or no.  God takes care of the rest and will one day provide us with Eternal Rest with Him in Heaven.  Remember, the “Father has chosen gladly to give you the Kingdom.” (Luke 12:32).

 

John 20:19-23

On the evening of that first day of the week, when the doors were locked, where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in their midst and said to them, “Peace be with you.” When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side. The disciples rejoiced when they saw the Lord. Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you.” And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them, and whose sins you retain are retained.”

 

“Breath of Heaven” by Amy Grant

I have traveled many moonless nights
Cold and weary with a babe inside
And I wonder what I’ve done
Holy father you have come
And chosen me now to carry your son

I am waiting in a silent prayer
I am frightened by the load I bear
In a world as cold as stone
Must I walk this path alone?
Be with me now
Be with me now

Breath of heaven
Hold me together
Be forever near me
Breath of heaven
Breath of heaven
Lighten my darkness
Pour over me your holiness
For you are holy
Breath of heaven

Do you wonder as you watch my face
If a wiser one should have had my place
But I offer all I am
For the mercy of your plan
Help me be strong
Help me be
Help me

Breath of heaven
Hold me together
Be forever near me
Breath of heaven
Breath of heaven
Lighten my darkness
Pour over me your holiness
For you are holy

Breath of heaven
Hold me together
Be forever near me
Breath of heaven
Breath of heaven
Lighten my darkness
Pour over me your holiness
For you are holy
Breath of heaven
Breath of heaven
Breath of heaven
