Going Through The Motions by Johnny Hunt

Going Through The Motions
Johnny Hunt
Galatians 6:9

INTRODUCTION: Matthew West, "The Motions"

"This might hurt, it's not safe

Let Your love make me whole

'Cause just okay is not enough
Help me fight through the nothingness of this life.

'Cause 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
