Martin Smith Iron Lung
Released: May 10, 2019
Life is a series of breaths, each with its own sound, its own significance. Our very souls owe their existence to the breath of God, as do the words of holy Scripture. So it is no accident that breathing carries us through the various phases of our lives, fueling our minds and bodies with the oxygen to keep going. We speak, shout, sing, cry, pray, run, laugh, and a thousand other things because of the air we breathe.
When our every breath is dependent on an outside source, we feel the fragility of our existence keenly. Every moment becomes a desperate grasp to cling to life, a dark tunnel from which we wonder if we’ll ever emerge. Martin Smith brings his own story to life in Iron Lung, assuring us that our needs and God’s desire to meet them will always coincide.
