Then Sings My Soul Saturday - Matthew West

Have you ever felt like you were just going through the motions? Sometimes life gets overwhelming and you just do the next thing because it's what expected of you. No passion, no emotion. Sometimes our spiritual life can become the same way too. God desires our whole heart. I never want to lose His all consuming passion. 

Going through the motions doesn't please you, 
a flawless performance is nothing to you.
I learned God worship when my pride was shattered.
Heart shattered lives ready for love don't for a moment
escape God's notice. Psalm 51:16-17 The Message

Have a Happy Valentines Day!

Happy Valentine's Day Amy!!! #7 perfect number for the day...I love Matthew West and had never heard this song but that's no surprise being I'm kinda outa the main circle of contemporary music except for what is shared right here and how TSMSS blesses me each week!

I think there has been a time when I felt I was just going through the "motions" because of being overwhelmed...but not anymore, because each day counts so much for and towards eternity and I'm so energized when my PASSION is ignited and HIS COMPASSION begins to flow supernaturally. And I so want to please my Lord & not perform for others & "works" for faith. May our faith increase & our PASSION explode! May any pride left in us diminish completely in HIS GLORY! Thanks for another GREAT song & hosting my love songs of worship each week to my Lord! It's a great group of worshipers!!!

ENJOY a wonderful weekend with family & your Valentine!!!

Going through the motions!! I have been there, and I never want to go back. Now that I have God's love fully entrenched in my heart and soul, I know what I was missing for so many years.

Happy Valentine's Day Amy! I do go through seasons where I feel like I'm going through the motions and I don't like it. I never want it to be that way.

Happy TSMSS!

Happy Valentine's Day all!

I went a little serious this week. I just loved the song and the scenes from Passion just fit perfectly.

I can't tell you all how much of a blessing this little grouping is to me each week.
