"tired of going through "the motions"...

On this rainy Friday morning my thoughts have turned inward. I have been wondering for some time about the passion of living life fully and completely for Christ. It is something that I struggle with in today's culture, surrounded by so many things NOT of Christ. I heard this song below and it moved me in a way that has not happened in many years. I DON'T want to just go through the motions. I DO want to live fully and completely for HIM and in HIM who gave me life. No matter what is going on, the trials or tribulations, the joys and celebrations, I want to live it for Him. For without God who are we? 

I want to know that at the end of each day, I have given my all for HIM. How do I do that? How do you do that?

Just a few things to nibble on this morning...
Peace and Blessings,
Mary



"The Motions"
written and sung by Mathew West
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 okay 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
'Cause just okay is not enough
Help me fight through the nothingness of this life

'Cause 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?"

take me all the way (take me all the way)
take me all the way ('cause I don't wanna go through the motions)
take me all the way (I know I'm finally feeling something real)
take me all the way

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?"

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?"

take me all the way (take me all the way)
take me all the way (I don't wanna go, I don't wanna go)
take me all the way (through the motions)
take me all the way

I don't wanna go through the motions
