01. This Life

The Generous Mr. Lovewell
by MercyMe


This is not my home
This is not space
Simply not my style
This is not my place
Cant get comfortable
Cant get settled in
I simply dont belong
Cant get used to this
But Im here right now
I can hear You say
Make the most of me
This wont go to waste
If Im out of my mind yeah
Its all for the Christ
If Im making sense
Then get in line

Every moment is a chance to
Let your light break through

This life, this life was meant to shine
This life, this life was meant to shine

I dont have to stall
I dont have to wait
Dont have to bide my time
Till I make my escape
Cause heavens in my heart
I wont settle for less
I will lift Your name
By the life I live

Every moment is a chance to
Let your light break through

This life, this life was meant to shine
This life, this life was meant to shine
Its in my heart
Its in my soul
Ill live every day just to make you known
This life, this life was meant to shine

Hold your heads up high
This is our moment to rise
We were meant to shine
Not just survive

Behind the Song:
"As for the opening track of this album, we thought it be a nice reminder that, while we don't belong here, we ARE here. In other words, God did not intend for us to sit around and wait for heaven, he desires us to live life to the fullest for His glory. This life was meant to shine!" - MercyMe
