I recently started a new Podcast that I titled Real Issues with the tag line, Don’t Just Go Through The Motions. That tag line was birthed when I found the song Motions by Matthew West.
Part of the song Motions is stuck in my head.
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…
Now the question I must ask you and myself is this. Are you giving life everything? Are you giving God everything? Or, are you drifting aimlessly through life just taking what comes?
One thing I’ve learned about life and leadership that is of utmost importance is to be Purposeful. In other words, decided what you want to accomplish with your life and then take steps “on purpose” to make it happen.
I’m an advocate of after prayer and the direction of the Holy Spirit to take AGGRESSIVE ACTION to accomplish whatever you need to accomplish. If you don’t, you’re just going through the motions.
Will you get to the end of your life and have regret. Will you wonder what might have been if you had given it everything instead of going through the motions.
