Day 29: Breath of Heaven

God’s beauty on display in the heaven-breathed artwork of my precious sister in Christ, Becky. Her, her husband and her son’s beloved gifts from God, Faith and Eden, were born into the arms of Jesus. Becky is also the daughter of my dear friend Bettie, who I invited to share any Scriptures God laid on her heart for today’s post. The three God gave her are published below.

“The Spirit of God has made me, And the breath of the Almighty gives me life.

Job 33:4

Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.

Colossians 3:1‭, ‬3‭-‬4 NIV

In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.

Romans 8:26‭-‬27 NIV

Today’s blessing over us comes to us through my dear friend Debbie, whose beloved youngest son, Roma, went home to Jesus.

I bless us to understand and embrace God’s redemption for us in all our brokenness, to know in Christ that the world will not always be as it is now, but made new. I bless us because Jesus told us that in this world, we will have trouble. I bless us to know and experience for ourselves the Promise of Jesus to us that He has overcome this world.

I bless us to lean into God’s provision in our every need. I bless us to know our only mandate is in Christ, in trusting in the Word and His provisions, fully submitting by His power at work in us to His perfect will. I bless us to know we are blessed because God is always beckoning, and as His sheep, we hear His voice. I bless us to lean into Christ’s longing to yield us to the Father’s good and perfect will for us.


Do you see the many leaves
Crushed and broken, torn,
Barren tree
Weeping shittim wood
Arms stretched heavenward

As manna then from heaven
Bare they do remain
But in praises sway
Many branches, side to side
As One.

Firmly planted
In love's strong roots
Swaying now in Holy Spirit's
Breath of Heaven
Beauty in all barrenness
Life where no life
Man could ever find.

And in their swaying
They beckon
Come, all barren, weary souls
Come find Life in death
Resurrection in arms stretched high
As manna falls.


    1. All praise be to God for His precious joining of us all to shower His gifts out upon us. Thank you for the precious Scriptures you gifted in Jesus for this post also. Amen: He has given us such precious breath in Him.
