A song can mean more than the lyrics hold

I can only imagine by MercyMe
This song means so much to me in several different ways. I remember my dad singing this at several different funerals, but the most memorable for me would have to be at one of my friends dads funeral. I was around 7 years old at the time and it really hit me. I can only imagine what it would be like to look at a deceased family member. I can only imagine when that day comes, but I know God has a plan for everyone and they will be in a better place. Several years ago I had a big scare, my dad had a massive heart attack bright and early in the morning. We rushed him the hospital and his blockage was significant. I can only imagine what would have happened if we waited any longer. He was flown out asap, and all I can remember is my mom crying but comforting me and telling me everything will be alright. It was a very dramatic morning, but all I can do is Praise God he’s still here with me. I can only imagine what I would be like today if God had taken him on that crazy morning.

Lose my soul by Toby Mac
“I don’t want to gain the whole world, and lose my soul” In my life I want to be the best I can be at everything I do, but I dont want my focus to ever be aside from Gods example. I would rather have nothing and be the best christian man I can be, than to have everything and stray away from God’s path that he has set forth for me. “Lord forgive us when we get consumed by the things of this world, That fight for our love, and our passion, As our eyes are open wide and on you. Grant us the privilege of your world view, And may your kingdom be, what wakes us up, and lays us down.” Toby Mac has so many songs that I love listening to, but there may not be one that means as much to me as this. While im listening to music on my Iphone, this song always seems to play at the right moment. I look at it as God giving me a sign that maybe Im giving the glory and honor to someone other then him.
