2 Corinthians 1:3-4

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.

Going Through The Motions

Are you just going through the motions in life...Getting by day by day? Doing things, just to get it done?

Yesterday as I was driving, listening to the radio..Just listening with one ear, while thinking of the day ahead and all that was going to unfold in a typically busy day.

A song came on the radio that struck a chord... It made me change my focus to the strings that where attached so tightly to my heart. I heard the words "I dont care if I BREAK at least I'll be feeling something." Do you ever feel that way?? Alot of days I do...Life is to busy, so consuming with worldly things.

So I continued to listen...and then "Gotta make a change" flew from the speakers to my soul....As a woman,,, and a christian we all feel that...

Then, like something I want to cry out to my Lord.."Cause just ok is not enough, help me fight through the nothingness of life"... I thought to myself,, Is that what it is?? Nothingness, Just ok??? Was it an emptyness... The fight is on.. Satan trying to make us feel like we are nothing, empty, just ok...But our Lord is so faithful,, He is always is there, by our side showing us we are so special and important to Him...He gave everything for us..John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."

And then the chorus..."I don't wanna go throught the motions, I don't want to go one more day without your all consuming passion inside of me....
I don't to spend my whole life asking what if I had given everything, instead of going throught the motions."

I don't want to look back and remember my life as just going through the motions... That is a trap we too easily get into... How do we avoid the trap? Focus on the Lord, Have quiet time with Him. Ask him for guidance. Do everything with intention and purpose. When you feel like you're "just going through the motions", stop and refocus. God is at your side, ready to head you down the right path... a path with purpose.

Proverbs 19:21
Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the LORD's purpose that prevails

Proverbs 3:6
In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.

Isaiah 46:4
Even to your old age and gray hairs
I am he, I am he who will sustain you.
I have made you and I will carry you;
I will sustain you and I will rescue you.
