The Motions

At the end of this blog is a youtube video. The song is "The Motions" by Matthew West. I would encourage you to take the time and LISTEN to the words. I found this video on a friends blog "Live Laugh Love Home".

"The Motions" that is so often just what we do. Of we say it is the "Christian thing to do". Let me ask you this why do you go to church on Sunday? Is it because that is what Christian's do? Or is it because you heart is there 100%? Would you go to church on Sunday if you knew it would be just you (no one else) listening to a message the pastor recorded each week? Or do you go to church because that is what Christian's do to "refuel" for the up coming week?

What about your personal time with God at home? Do you read your bible or do you study it to drawl out God's voice to you? Do you have your devotions to just say "I did today". Where does it become personal to you.

James 4:8 Come near to God and God will come near to you.

Now take a moment and listen to the words of this song and see if that is your life.

Today has been really rough. I am facing some really hard things with my case and I think coming off these steroids is getting to me.
I need to know that I am not just going through the motions. I need He to consistently hold me to the line..and I know He will.
Goodness today was hard.
Thank you for this.

I have come to the place in my life where I can't bear to just go through the motions. I want a living, growing relationship with Him. He is all I need.
