This song really spoke to me. It is such a great reminder not to live your life just "going through the motions". It is often times very easy to get sucked into the every day routine of life. But is that really enough? Is that how your life is to be spent? I know that it isn't enough for me nor is it how I want to live my life. I don't want to get to the end of my life and have to say "I wish I would have _____". I am not perfect and I mess up many times daily but I know that even in the midst of my screw ups God still loves me. So why in the world would I want to live my life just going through the motions when I could be living out the life that God has called me to? What keeps us from living the life that God called us to live? Is it fear? Is it pride? Is it people around you? Is it laziness? It really could be any one of these things and more. I know all of the above have been a factor in my life at one time or another. And there are times that I still let some of these hold me back. But I don't want to live my life in fear, selfishly, or prideful. So what do I do...I ask God to take the fear away to remind me that he is in complete control and there is no need to fear. I ask him to help me let go of my selfish pride and to give me humility. I ask him to show me where he wants me to go, and who he wants me to be.
Those are just my thoughts. What about you...what does this song make you think about? What does "the motions" mean to you? What are some ways you live your life so that you aren't just going through the motions or what are some things you should/could change to make this happen?
