Love Broke Thru

When love broke thru you found me in the darkness.

 Video: "Love Broke Thru" by TobyMac

I was feelin’ that, feelin’ that breeze
Singin’ like a song thru the tall oak trees
It was just another summer night
Had to be the last thing on my mind

Yeah, I was all but lost in the moment
I was young and runnin’ wide open
It was just another summer night
Had to be the last thing on my mind

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
And it all began with You
When love broke thru

I did all that I could to undo me
But You loved me enough to pursue me
Yeah, You drew me out of the shadows
Made me believe that I mattered, to You

You were there, You heard my prayer
In that broke down dusty room
It was the first time I said, “I’m Yours”
The first time I called You Lord
Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life.
The moment that you realize that you have been pursued by the greatest love ever is a shocking moment. We are so full of ourselves that we ignore the best thing that could ever happen to us and the number one answer to our deepest need.

But then it happens, the blinders come off and we are overwhelmed by the love of God that has pursued us the whole time that we were chasing after other lovers. Those other loves held us captivate chained up in a dark room until real love breaks through.

That's a love that calls us to be hopelessly devoted to the lover of our souls. How could we respond in any other way?
