Matthew West - Day One Lyrics




Well, I wish I had a short term memory
Wish the only thing my eyes could see
Was the future burning bright right in front of me
But I can't stop looking back

Yeah, I wish I was a perfect picture of
Somebody who's never not good enough
I try to measure up but I mess it up
And I wish I wasn't like that

I wish I wasn't wishing anymore
Wish I could remember that nobody's keeping score
I'm tired of throwing pennies in a well
I gotta do something
Here goes nothin'

It's day one of the rest of my life
It's day one of the best of my life
I'm marching on to the beat of a brand new drum
Yeah, here I come
The future has begun
Day one

Well, every single day Your grace reminds me
That my best days are not behind me
Wherever my yesterday may find me
Well, I don't have to stay there

See my hourglass is upside down
My someday soon is here and now
The clock is tickin'
And I'm so sick and tired of missing out

It's day one
And here comes the sun

Every morning, every morning
Every morning, mercy's new
Every morning, every morning
Every morning, I will fix my eyes on You
Every morning, every morning
Every morning, mercy's new
Every morning, every morning
Sun's coming up, the beginning has begun

Starting over, I'm starting over
Starting over, I'm starting over, starting now
I'm starting over
Starting over, I'm starting over
Starting over
Starting over, starting now
I'm starting over

    I need to hear this everyday cause lately I have been feeling like a failure and my marriage is falling apart. And my husband keeps reminding me of my mistakes. I know I am not perfect and I apologize for my mistakes, but he can’t apologize when he makes mistakes and he always reminds me of my mistakes.

    My favorite of yours Matthew west . I thank GOD for giving us this wonderful song through you. May GOD bless you.

  26. ALLEN DAVES

    #1 “ANOTHER JESUS”: (2Cor 11:4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus…)

    The strongest case for the divinity of Christ that one can make is the one God himself uses.....God speaking in the first person specifically in scriptures refers to the parts of a mans body (made in his own image) to describe father son and spirit and yet that is modalism by definition which trinitarians call heresy but God NOWHERE refers to himself as three in fact the worship of three different god-self’s with different amounts of knowledge, power and authority ordering each other around is nothing but a perverted pantheon and trying to lay claim to monotheism is like claiming your three different cars are the “one vehicle........ …

    -The Trinitarian apologist pretend to have superior understand of more complex issues in statements where the purpose of God is NOT DEFINING how many persons he is while the simplest of statements by God FOR THE EXPRESS PURPOSE of defining how many persons God is eludes them. They also seem to “excel with glee” in giving their translations of oblique/obscure passages that have NO demand or intention of defining a specific number of persons of God to then cherry pick demands and assumptions of “great piety” into them.

    -This should have given you a hint, harking back to Satan in The garden…God said you will die…Satan comes along and states no you will be more WISE……Today .God said He is one; but Satan’s children come along and say “no, God is "three in one" aka trinity is more WISE and humble in the face of God’s grandeur only “a mystery” that can be understood “in faith”. God uses head and right arm to explain the distinctions between father and son.. However, the Trinitarian heretics say to the effect: “NO, that is just a figure of speech, or that is not what God really means. What God is really saying is that God is three different persons”. Fools, hypocrites and blind guides, God said he was One and by your traditions have taken the words of God and made them of no effect, refashioning God into the image of your vain imaginations!

    #2 “ANOTHER GOSPEL”: (2Cor 11:4 “...or another gospel”… Do you even know what the Gospel is?!?)

    -Gal 1: 8. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach ANY OTHER GOSPEL unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

    The book of Revelation offers us an interesting Theological dilemma. It states Rev 22:16. I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. Revelation also states it is “the true sayings” of Jesus and that it is “the testimony of Christ”. If this is not “the gospel of Jesus Christ” then what is it and should we consider it accursed testimony of an angel? If it is not to be considered accursed, then it cannot be some other gospel message then what was already given previously. However, this is the conundrum, for if this is the gospel message, then why do so few understand it? There is a possibility which few consider but is the overall thesis of this apology. The reason people don’t understand revelation is because they never understood what the gospel message was in the first place! In that case, where does that put those who claim it is not essential for salvation? Do you not find it quite curious that the most "Personally" given NT book By Jesus himself, is the least understood and given the least importance for Salvation in Christendom?....There are numerous preachers and bible exegetes but as Paul said “… I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge ” . Most who profess the name of Christ are feeding on doctrines of devils and the ignorant.. There are, without question, many “qualified” teachers and scholars with many years of “dedication” and “solid education”. However, teachers, no matter how well lettered or numbered in degrees; if obtained from others; who are just as equally ignorant in such matters, are just “ blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.”...........

    #3 GOD LOVES EVERYONE??? Jesus Died for “you”?……

    Does God love you?....“Probably” NOT!....and NO Jesus did NOT die for everyone!?!...... “come as you are??” (Lk 3:8)

    Prov 8: 17. I LOVE THEM THAT LOVE ME …………Do you love God??

    1John 5:3. For THIS IS THE LOVE OF GOD, that we keep his commandments:

    There is a sharp contrast between THREE groups Predestination….its true.. its all true… God does NOT love everyone:

    (1) “PREDESTINED DAMNED” who were NEVER written in the book of life ………..Rev 17: 8 WHOSE NAMES WERE NOT WRITTEN IN THE BOOK OF LIFE FROM THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD, …as contrasted …EPH 1: 4. According as he hath CHOSEN US in him BEFORE THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD

    (2) “MANY CALLED”= ONLY and ALL SAINTS (those who come to Christ) are written in the book of life … Philippians 4:3… ……Rev 21:27; (Only saints are Called and elect; Rom 1:6-7 et al) This is THE CHRUCH and ONLY these can have their names blotted out of the book of life ….….Heb 12:23 to the general assembly and CHURCH of the firstborn … WHICH ………are WRITTEN in heaven,

    (3) THE FEW CHOSEN: Those saints who were alive in group #2 who are now physically dead. They died “faithful” these are the FEW that were chosen faithful…….Rev 3:5. ……; and I
    will not BLOT OUT HIS NAME OUT OF THE BOOK OF LIFE, (Ps 69:28) …. These are the FEW that are CHOSEN and now that they have died and are saved then “once saved THEY CAN NEVER BE LOST”

    PS: “The world” that God so loved was not the Roman world nor the world of the Maya nor the world you imagined in your head that God specifically told them NOT TO LOVE!?! Heb 10:29 They are worse off because they did something the damned had not done which is to treat the blood, that was shed for them- that bought them, with spite !?!

    Hear this song in the background of some Northwestern University (Minnesota) commercials when listening to one of the Christian music stations in my area, 98.5 KTIS. They're run by Northwestern, so that's why a lot of the shorter breaks are ads for them.

    Though I'm only in 6th grade, I'm learning about "evolution" and the "first species of humans" and all that, and I'm starting to question the existence of God or the stories of Adam and Eve, because to me with all this evidence that these species of humans and dinosaurs are real, where does Adam and Eve really fit in? It hurts that I'm starting to believe that God isn't real or that evolution is actually how humanity started. Please help I really am losing some faith and I really don't wan't to lose all my faith in Jesus Christ.

    Casa MaiColin

    I am almost 60 years old and by experience i can tell you that God way will never fail . When i have relied on Him i have victory over difficulties . If i do it the worlds way i have failure or emptiness. I can say he has revealed himself to me in so many ways when i call and i ask and i seek . He never changes.
    Darwin If you search you will quickly find he was a believer . I just looked and found this . He did, however, insist that he had never been an atheist in the sense of denying the existence of God – a point sometimes overlooked by his fundamentalist critics and his atheistic champions.

    DucksUnlimited

    Who says that you have to have one or the other? I personally am a strong believer in God but I also think evolution is possible. God created everything - who's to say he didnt create the earth and set evolution into motion as his way of creating life? Sure, some take it as a debunking of the belief in God but it really isn't. At all.

    Kitty Lover

    TheNewbr god isn't real, he's an illusion created by the government to keep society under control. this is why the government doesn't tell us about aliens and alien sightings, because if they did, the citizens of religion would question their beliefs and burn down houses and rob and steal. I'm a 6th grader too, but I opened my eyes to reality. please be an intellectual and do the same.

    Danielle Ruff

    maja vincent God is real, I've seen and heard of miracles that were done by God. And I'm in 6th grade to. I hope you can regain your faith in God!😕

    SuccBlade

    maja vincent Religion was creayed by a government. They are mostly created by people. Most Governments have the freedom of religion law that allows any religious practice and no government can restrict it. I do believe the government does keep info about aliens hidden from us.
