It takes breath to speak words.
Genesis 1:3 ~ Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light…”
The Breath of God spoke the World into existence.
At Breath on Paper we believe memorizing scripture is the best way to get the Word of God in our heart.

This week we chose a few verses from Matthew chapter 21 that tell the story of Jesus entrance into Jeresalem.
8 A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. 9 The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted,
“Hosanna to the Son of David!”
“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”
“Hosanna in the highest heaven!”
10 When Jesus entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred and asked, “Who is this?”
11 The crowds answered, “This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee.”
Read the verses. Close your eyes and ask God what He wants to show you about these verses. Ask what He wants you to learn about Jesus’ entrance into Jerusalem just one week before His resurrection. Then write in your journal what you hear. Let your head get out-of-the-way and allow the words to flow through your pen. Write from your heart.
Print the photo above and put it on your refrigerator, tape it to your bathroom mirror, post it over your computer at work, or save it as your screen saver on your computer. In the verses above, the crowd is quoting Psalm 118:25-26.
Save us, we pray, O Lord!
O Lord, we pray, give us success!
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!
We bless you from the house of the Lord.
Get it into your heart so you can breathe The Word.
