"More Than Survival," by Sanctus Real

 

 

What does it mean to live life to the fullest?  To seize the day? 

Most of us are really just trying to get through each one of our days feeling like we’ve accomplished something that has some meaning, some purpose. 

A few years back the band had a writing getaway and I sat the guys down and had them all tell what was going on in their hearts and lives.  Mark said something that kinda sat with me, he said,” I’m tired of feeling like I’m just surviving days rather than living them, I really just want more than survival.”  I wrote that line down in my little notebook and the next day came back to it sitting down at the piano and kept repeating, I want more, I want more than survival. 

I mean, don’t we all? 

Yet we just continue to go through our motions, day after day, trying to to get ahead running on our spinning wheel like a mouse trying to escape its cage.  Yet, unlike the mouse, this is a cage of our own making, our own choices, our pursuits and desires to get more, gain more, be more than others, so we built our cage.  Before we know it, all that we have built has become our very own prison. 

This is not what we are called to.  We are called to freedom, to prefer things that are heavenly over the temporal gain that success offers.  We were built for more than stuff, we were meant to live, to love, to spread the kingdom of heaven everywhere we go. 

Don’t trade contentment for greed, don’t sacrifice the love of Christ for the love of stuff.  Live like there is no tomorrow, live for more than just survival.

-Dustin Lolli, Sanctus Real
