This week’s featured song story comes to us from TobyMac. We’re excited to share with you the story behind his song “Scars.”
“For the first time in my life I found myself sending ships out of the harbor. Up ‘til now our family, our home, it’s been the harbor. People I love the most are going out and facing the pain, the struggle and the temptation of this crazy world.I’m very aware of the scars that come with life’s journey, but sometimes we insulate those things from the ones we love, our children. So to see them go out there and do this real world it’s painful. I wrote this one for my boy. I wanted to let him know that I’m here for him and God is there for him. So lift your head my son to where your help comes from.” –TobyMac

Tenth Avenue shares the story behind their new song "Afraid".
“When I was a kid I was scared of the dark. Then I grew up and I learned to be scared of a lot more things than just the dark. Now I’m scared for my health, scared of not being able to provide, scared of politics, terror, the list goes on and on. Fear is just the consequence of believing the lie.So why am I afraid? What lie am I listening to? Whose voice am I listening to? In other words fear is the result of believing that voice that I was hearing as a kid. This is where Psalm 62:11-12 is really helpful cause it says, ‘once you have spoken, two things I have heard. That You O Lord are strong and that You O Lord are loving.’ So next time fear washes over you why don’t you ask yourself which voice are you listening to? Me, I don’t want to be afraid so help me to listen.” – Mike Donehey (Tenth Avenue North)
