Just Showed Up For My Own Life

Spending my time sleep walking. Moving my mouth but not saying a thing. Hoping the changes would take by working their way from the outside in. I was in love with an idea. Preoccupied with how a life should appear. Spending my time at the surface repairing the holes in the shiny veneer. There are so many ways to hide. There are so many ways not to feel. There are so many ways to deny what is real.

And I just showed up for my own life. And I'm standing here taking it in and it sure looks brightI'm going to live my life inspired. Look for the holy in the common place. Open the windows and feel all that's honest and real until I'm truly amazed. I'm going to feel all my emotions I'm going to look you in the eyes. I'm going to listen and hear until it's finally clear and it changes our lives. There are so many ways to hide. There are so many ways not to feel. There are so many ways to deny what is real.

And I just showed up for my own life. And I'm standing here taking it in and it sure looks bright. Oh the glory of God is man fully alive. Oh the glory of God is man fully alive. There are so many ways to hide. There are so many ways not to feel. There are so many ways to deny what is real.

And I just showed up for my own life. And I'm standing here taking it in and it sure looks bright
