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
Canít get comfortable
Canít get settled in
I simply donít belong
Canít get used to this
But Iím here right now
I can hear You say
ďMake the most of meĒ
This wonít go to waste
If Iím out of my mind yeah
Itís all for the Christ
If Iím 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 donít have to stall
I donít have to wait
Donít have to bide my time
Till I make my escape
ĎCause heavenís in my heart
I wonít 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
Itís in my heart
Itís in my soul
Iíll 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
