Instead of Going Through the Motions…

My mind won’t rest. It’s running a hundred miles an hour. I’m trying to get it to slow down, proceed with caution, look both ways before stepping out. Not this time, it screams back at me.

No more being a couch potato Christian…no more sitting on the sidelines, wondering if I’ll ever get in the game. Time to step out of the boat…sink or swim, at least I’ll be moving towards Christ. I know God has a plan…he’s just been waiting on me. Funny, I told myself I was waiting on him.

Its been a few years since I first heard this song by Matthew West. Its been a while since I listened to it, but it fits…exactly.

I don’t want to live my whole life asking, what if I had given everything…instead of going through the motions.

I don’t know where God is leading me…but I know that this time, my feet will be moving.

  3. First of all, I look forward to reading your entry each day. Keep up the great work.

    I heard this very song today on the car radio as Cameron and I were tooling around town, and have made it my soundtrack for 2010 too. It’s a great song.


  4. I love your blog! I came across it from the emmaus prayer chain and your writing is beautiful. I am looking forward to reading more-very inspiring!!


  5. S,

    I heard this again today too – either on KLOVE or The Message/Sirius, and there was a great story about a teenage boy who posted it on his Facebook page and told all of his friends that he wanted them to hold him accountable to the lyrics. A few days later he was killed in a car wreck, and long story short, his family eventually became involved with Matthew West’s tour and this song and the young man’s testimony before his death became a part of the healing process for his family. And also ministered to so many others on the tour. I may have gotten some of the story wrong, but that was the basics of it.

    I really want to start blogging again – maybe reading yours will be the push I need!

    Love you!
