Sings My Soul Saturday

While listening to Pandora on Tuesday, this song came up and I was struck by the words: "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?'"  Those are powerful words.  We are to "give everything," and surrender all to Him.  It is a daily decision, a minute by minute surrender of our will to His.  And we cannot do it without walking in the Spirit, spending time in the Word and in prayer--all day talking and listening to that small, still voice whispering "this is the way, walk in it" (Is 30:21).  Here is the video and lyrics for Matthew West's "The Motions."




  • Songwriters: Jason Houser, Sam Mizell, 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
(Lord, 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
