1. the air inhaled and exhaled in respiration.
2. respiration, especially as necessary to life.
3. life; vitality.
4. the ability to breathe easily and normally: She stopped to regain her breath.
5. time to breathe; pause or respite: Give him a little breath.
Some days, I forget to breathe. I am helpless without outside forces acting on me to make my lungs and I move.
And thank God I’m helpless, because if my need for my Creator was any less, He wouldn’t need to come into this helpless body Himself and force my lungs to inhale and expel His glory.
