Every Time I Breathe

Album: Every Time I Breathe (2006)
  • Big Daddy Weave is a five member Christian rock band composed of frontman Mike Weaver (lead singer), plus Jay Weaver, Jeremy Redmon, Jeff Jones and Joe Shirk. Their name comes partly from one of Mike Weaver's nicknames "Big Daddy" and also from his and his brother Jay's surname.
  • Mike Weaver explained on the liner notes for Wow Hits 2008, that he penned this song about his relationship with God during a time when he was struggling with his Christian walk. He said: "This song was written during a really dry time in my walk with God. He showed me not to be afraid of the desert, because in the wilderness is an awesome opportunity to push the reset button on our desire for Him. It says in His word that we will seek Him and find Him when we seek Him with our whole heart. Sometimes it takes the desert to make us so thirsty that we realize nothing else will satisfy but Jesus. On the other side of those dry waits a refreshing moment by moment relationship with God, where we encounter His greatness and respond naturally with lives of worship-just like breathing."
