Lords Lungs

Did you know the average person breathes about 22,000 breaths per day?

Breathing, it’s normal, and it’s something that you do every day all day long. Whether you’re awake or asleep you breathe in air full of oxygen. It travels through your nose and your mouth and your lungs sending the oxygen to every cell to your body, providing energy. As your cells use oxygen they make waste gas called carbon dioxide, which you breathe out. Your brain can actually tell you how fast to breathe. When you exercise, get scared or get excited your cells need more energy, thus more oxygen. So your brain tells your lungs to breathe faster. When you’re asleep, you don’t need as much energy, so your brain tells your lungs to slow down. It’s wonderful that breathing isn’t something you really have to think about. God designed it to function involuntarily along with our heart and many other internal organs. 

The average person can hold his breath for about 30 seconds. The Guinness World Book of Records belongs to Alex Vendrell who amazingly held his breath for 24 minutes and 3.45 seconds. This is an incredible feat as the brain can experience traumatic damage without oxygen in 4-8 minutes. Our faithful Creator sustains our nervous system and is the giver of life. Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being. Genesis 2:7
