Entangled with Christ


Let everything that breathes sing praises to the Lord! Praise the Lord! Psalm 150:6

Sometimes when I pray I feel like I’m just whining. Tripping over my own feet and tears to tell God why I can’t make it here, why no one is being influenced for Him, everything that is wrong in this world.

Yet every time I say “amen”, I feel peace, reassured, and refueled with a fresh anointing of energy. 

Every. Time.

He existed before anything else, and he holds all creation together. Colossians 1:17


He being Jesus.

If you read this whole passage, Colossians 1:15-23, you will see a beautiful image of how Christ was created to be seen, for all of creation to be created, and to hold that very creation together.

What a beautiful picture.

Held together by Christ.

Perhaps that’s why so many people feel drawn to Big Daddy Weave’s “Every Time I Breathe.” You can listen to him tell the story behind the song here.

  1. I used to feel a bit like I was whining or asking for too much when praying, but then instead of focusing on myself, I changed my perspective and started thinking about how other people could be helped. Now, instead of praying I offer thanks for the wonderful things in my life and for the ability to help others. I found you through the Ultimate Blog Challenge and love your style of writing!
