Look Within


There is a song out right now by Matthew West that reaches right down into my soul and pounds my heart. I connect with what he is singing about because it speaks the thoughts I have had. I wrote out the words on this journal page and I hope this song will inspire you too. I don't want to just go through life having not truly lived, just going through the motions. I want my existence in this world to have made a difference. I want to live life passionately and to have that passion come from the Lord. I want to know that I am right where I should be, doing what I should be doing and feeling the joy and peace that can only come from being in that sweet spot. Not that everything would be perfect because life is very messy. I'm talking about fulfilling my purpose in a way that brings glory to God and inspires others to live life purposefully too. Here are the words to the song:
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 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
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!

Teri I opened it, so I don't know if they will take it - and I don't think I have the receipt. I know you have seen it, but would you like to see again?? I would be happy to send it to you.
