Soundtrack of My Life: Antonio Neal – The Only One

“You are the only one I need. You are the only God for me. I cannot move, cannot breathe unless You exhale in me.”

I played this gospel song over and over during finals week. It reminded me to breathe. God was there with me, is with me now, giving me the very breath I need so I can succeed. Reminds me of sophomore Bible study at Kenyon. My friend Heather explained that she learned that the name of God (YAHWEH) cannot be said because it’s really the sound of your breath. So with every breath we breathe, we say and praise God’s name. I think that’s so beautiful. It’s stuck with me for years, will stick with me for life.
