If you have asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or any other breathing problem - then you know what it means to have a wheeze. Not being able to breathe or catch your breath or constantly feeling like every breath will be your last can be very scary. That is why it is so important that you are properly diagnosed and the correct treatment is ordered to cure or control your breathing problem. Once under control - life returns to normal. 

People who have lost their way spiritually can be considered to be out of "spiritual" air. The word spirit comes from the Latin Spiritus which means breathe. So when we mention the Holy Spirit we literally are saying the Holy breath or Holy air. The Holy Spirit comes from  God and moves in our lives to accomplish whatever it is that God wishes to do. In all that we do as Christians - we need the presence of God's Holy Spirit working in our lives - guiding us - helping us - giving us strength to face the realities of life.  With the Holy Spirit you will never have to worry about being spiritually short of breath - today your prayer should be "come Holy Spirit, fill my life with your presence"
