“Well, Today I found myself after searching all these years and the man that I saw wasn’t at all who I thought he’d be.  I was lost when You found me. I was broken beyond repair.  Then You came along and You sang Your song over me.  Feels like I’m born again!  Feels like I’m living!  For the very first time in my life!”  (Born Again by Third Day)

I can really identify with the song I quoted above.  I was having lunch with a friend today and I was trying to tell him what was going on in my life.  My excitement was obvious to him.  For the first time in my life,  I  feel like I am engaged in a strategic mission with eternal implications!  Not that my previous 30 years were wasted but I now feel like I am living life at a deeper and richer level.  My refusal to be paralyzed by the pathetic chains of materialism have stirred new energies in me!  I actually see and react to situations differently.  It is like being born again!  

Another song by Matthew West, Motions, says,”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.”  I can honestly say that it is no longer just “motions” for me!  Thank You Lord!!!
