You voted “Breathe” as WAY-FM’s #1 song for 2016! Read on to learn the story behind it.
“If I’m honest, I was just busy. I remember getting into this writing appointment… my first thought was, ‘I don’t even have time to write a song right now.’”
Well, we’re glad he did anyway. That’s what Jonny Diaz said just as he was about to start writing the song, “Breathe.” God ended up teaching him a lot in that moment, in the middle of “busy.”
Jonny sums up what the song is all about by saying this: “It’s not about just serving God. It’s more about knowing God. I tend to kind of be a Martha – constantly doing things, trying to serve God. And sometimes, I just need to be a Mary and sit at God’s feet. Knowing God needs to be at the pinnacle – the most important thing. He’s not part of my life. He is my life. And He encompasses all things, so I can rest in Him and know that He’s got it all under control.”
How should be handle the times when chaos floods our lives? Don’t forget to take a moment to breathe. Breathe in God’s presence, drink in His Word, and remember He’s with you throughout your day – no matter how crazy it gets!
Did you know Jonny didn’t even realize this song was becoming popular at first?
