"Love Broke Through" by Toby Mac

“When love broke thru You found me in the darkness, wanderin’ thru the desert. I was a hopeless fool, now I’m hopelessly devoted. My chains are broken. And it all began with You, when love broke thru.”

God loves us—he loves us unconditionally. He loves us with an everlasting love. So many people wander around in the desert, living life in the darkness without the love of God. Maybe you remember being there. Maybe you are there right now. This song is the story of TobyMac’s life journey and it tells of the moment when God’s love broke through Toby’s darkness and filled it with the light of his love. It tells of Toby’s life when he was doing all that he could to “undo” himself, but God pursued him and drew him out of the shadows. Maybe you are living in the shadows right now. Maybe you know someone whose life is wrapped in darkness. God is waiting with open arms and overflowing love to accept all who say yes to his love. He is waiting with forgiveness if we just ask. He is waiting with redemption if we just believe. Let love break through in your life today. And pray for those you know who need to let God’s love break through to them, too.

What do you think it feels like to be wandering in the desert or living in darkness? Has God’s love broken through to you? If so, what was it like when that happened? If not, can you feel God knocking at your door right now, ready to share his love with you?

Psalm 52:8…I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God; I trust in God’s unfailing love for ever and ever.

Father, Thank you for loving me unconditionally. Break through the darkness with your light of love. Continue to pursue me when I walk in my own way and try to “undo” myself. Pull me out of the shadows and into your open arms. Forgive me when I get off track and restore me as I run back to you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
