Goin' Through The Motions

A new song by Matthew 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.

It seems that there is too much “nothingness of life” stuff that really doesn’t matter for eternity, stuff that isn’t going to have any effect on whether God says “well done faithful servant.” We stay in our safe routines day after day, just doing what we do, but is God calling me to do something more?

“Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the end of the earth, everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory” (Isaiah 43:6-7)

We were created for God's glory and giving him glory is job number one, life is wasted when we do not live for the glory of God, I have to be careful to live for God's glory and not for my own glory.

I want my life to bring glory to you Lord, I pray that you will be able to say "well done good and faithful servant."
