Love Broke Thru – Toby Mac

We believe one of the things that sets us a part from other fitness programs is our music. You won’t hear vulgar lyrics, suggestive themes, or inappropriate words. Simply put – our music will always be uplifting and positive. Something your whole family can listen to. We are grateful for the artists who continue to put out great music we can exercise to.

In light of this, we are going to begin featuring songs we use in our classes. Today is a sneak peek. Let us know what you think. Comment, post a story, or share it with your circle of influence. We’ll be posting these every Saturday, so make sure you check back to catch the next one. Enjoy!

Love Broke Thru – 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.

  1. I think this is a fantastic idea to highlight the song words. I love how each session has a theme and the song relates to those and I think it is important to let God speak to us through the lyrics and then encourage one another by sharing these stories. Thank you for doing this.

  2. Thanks Suzanne. We love how God uses this music in all of our lives to deepen our understand of Him, to encourage us in life, and to allow us to exercise to amazing music.

  3. Suzanna, it is a blessing to write these for you and I am so glad that they are meaningful! The music that we use in our fitness classes is so powerful and uplifting!
