Going through the motions

Saturday, March 7, 2009

What if? That's a question that literally haunts some people. What if I would have done this? What if I would have made this decision? We shouldn't live in the past - but we sure can learn a lot from our mistakes. History is a good teacher. We must commit to not waste our lives - we must commit to live every day as if it is our last. For the person that is truly following Christ - that means living your life in complete awe of Him. Don't just waste life going through the motions! Love God with everything that is in you and give yourself to Him completely!

Matthew West sums this up well in his song "The Motions." Here are the lyrics;

This might hurt
It’s not safe
But I know that I’ve gotta make a change
I don’t care
If I break
At least I’ll be feeling something
‘Cause just ok
Is not enough
Help me fight through the nothingness of life

I don’t wanna go through the motions
I don’t wanna go one more day
Without Your all consuming passion inside of me
I don’t wanna spend my whole life asking
What if I had given everything?
Instead of going through the motions

No regrets
Not this time
I’m gonna let my heart defeat my mind
Let Your love
Make me whole
I think I’m finally feeling something

Take me all the way
Take me all the way
Take me all the way
