Goodbye Ordinary

My husband took his oath to "officially" become an attorney, yesterday. For all of his hard work, I wanted to give him a gift. Something with meaning. We have been talking a lot lately about quiet time with the Lord, so I got him a 365-day devotional for men and a MercyMe CD (our mutually favorite band that we will be going to see in November!).

We popped the CD in immediately on our drive home from downtown and the first song was one neither of us had heard before, called "Goodbye Ordinary". I felt moved to share the lyrics with you, I hope it touches you and compels you to make some changes...

I wonder
when we first bought into this
So satisfied with status quo
Have we convinced ourselves that this is all there is
Well, all that is within me says we were meant to break free.

Live like there's no tomorrow
Love extravagantly
Lead a life to be followed
Goodbye ordinary
Goodbye ordinary

We were never meant to compromise
Settle for mediocrity
This life was never made to be a waste of time
Well, all that is within me says no more just existing

No more complacency
No more just settling this time
Goodbye to atrophy
For we were meant to be alive.


  1. Great song!
    Here's the link to it on youtube. Do you know how to upload youtube videos to the blog?

  2. I have always loved the lyrics to that song. It's a good one! But then, they're all good when they come from MM.
