Simple Pleasure

                          http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dva6-Yu3zkI&feature=fvst


I was "HIT" really hard, by this song this week.
The words from Matthew West's song, Motions, is an eye opener for me.

"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 want to go through the motions. I want to give everything.


~:~:~:~:~:~

This is my simple pleasure,
to give everything!


Dayle, over at A Collection of This and That,
is hosting Simple Pleasures.
Please join us every Thursday.

  3. WOW, Christine. Amazing song. Powerful words. My spirit is willing but my flesh is weak. I'm thinking how grateful I am for God's mercy and grace.
    Blessings!

  4. Very powerful. I've been on auto-pilot lately. This was the nudge I needed.

  5. Very true. Quite often we do end up on auto pilot and not giving our all.

  14. I love this song and had it as my ring tone on my phone a few years ago. I remember praying those words and soon after the Lord took me through a refining process that was painful but good. Sometimes it takes that to grow us : ))

  18. Christine,
    I've been so buried that I was reading your blog on Thursday, my computer ran out of battery and this morning was the first time I turned the computer back on to find a beautiful picture of you and Tom staring back at me! God has been so faithful in my life and I love this Matthew West song! Waht a wonderful reminder of how He wants us to live for Him!
    You are the best, my friend! Have a wonderful weekend! I'm on my way out the door to paint at the cottage! God Bless!
