Kevin Michael Mckeehan, better known as TobyMac, is a Christian singer, songwriter, hip hop artist, you name it! He's been on top of the christian music game for decades. He knows how to stay relevant in each generation. The amount of times I've seen his name on the Christian music billboard charts, I can't even begin to count. Mr. Mac really is an incredible musician. This year alone he has been involved in many projects including Aaron Cole's. Recently, he released a song titled "Everything" and it was truly inspired. Not until I heard the story behind the song did I truly grasp everything that was intended when released. Now that I have, it means so much more to me, and I have my original thoughts on the song and McKeehan's original intent. When talking about the writing of the song he said the following "I was on my way to the studio one day to write this song, a song I had in my head, not really in my heart. So on the drive I said a really simple prayer. I said "Daddy, you want me to write a song other than this one, will you show me something?" As I continued driving my eyes began to open. I could hear him say "No Toby, I'm not going to show you something, I'm showing you everything." Isaiah 43:19 says "I am doing a new thing in you, it's springing forth do you recieve it?" I walked in the studio that day with a fresh song to write, yeah, a new song in my heart. and I'm gonna fight to keep looking for God in everything. all day." Wow. That is so powerful and deep...and yet, it's so simple! Toby prayed for something and God responded with the fact that He gave us everything. Let that sink in...God gave us everything as long as we choose to receive it. Just like this song says, every heartbeat that we have is because of our Savior. If it weren't for Him, we would be a lost cause. This song is a great reminder to keep looking for God in every thing and every situation. Check out Toby's latest hit!
