Breathing Again

Have you ever almost drowned or known someone who has been in that position? It’s a pretty frightening scenario to be in. In that situation, it appears that all hope is lost. It’s said that whenever a drowning person gains their breath and hope, the feeling is like none other—going from thinking your life is over to realizing you have life and breath is an extraordinary contrast. That’s how David felt when he found out he was forgiven after he confessed his sin. In Psalm 32:1, he describes that feeling as “blessed.”
