If you haven't ever listened (and danced) to a TobyMac song, you have really missed out.
I see You in everything, all day
Sure, if I'm paying attention!
I see You in every little thing, all day
Yes, even when it's raining (or snowing) outside. God really is present everywhere at all times. We just don't notice.
TobyMac is a Christian musician, major recording artist, song writer, producer, and rapper. I love him! He sure doesn't sound like what we might associate with Christian music. His music is danceable and the lyrics are catchy.
In case no has told you, Christian music has taken a major turn into sounding very much like pop music. My car radio is only turned to Contemporary Christian stations. I don't listen to anything else. I love it.
While I toodle around in my car, the lyrics I hear inspire me, teach me, and make me happy. It's worship time for me. When I hear my boy TobyMac singing Everything, I am reminded that God is in everything. So, what do I do? I look around, of course. I cast my eyes around my environment to view what God has created. And it's gorgeous! The magnificent sunrise proclaiming a new day. The sunset announcing the close of a day. The green carpet stating it is well cared for. The jaunty flowers in the gardens, peeking up at the sun. The stars hanging in the sky, winking down on me. The moon shining my path home. All incredibly beautiful.
As I return to my house, I might have seen the ducks in mass congregation around the lake, or waddling up the street with their young following close. Squirrels streak out across my path in a frenzy. No, I am not going to hit you... Kitties nap in a child's wagon, not a care in the world, while dogs bark their warnings to intruders. This is God's beauty, His creations. And it's all here for me to enjoy. If I look.
I invite you to be a witness to the beauty we are blessed to be gifted. It is there -- everyday -- for your viewing pleasure and total joy. Check it out! And check out TobyMac as well.
No matter where I go I know Your love is finding me…
