Lose My Soul - TobyMac
"I wrote the verse as a prayer, one that I find myself praying often.
'Father God I am clay in Your hand. I wanna stay that way through all life's demands 'cause they chip and they nag and they pull at me and every little thing I make up my mind to be.
Like I'm gonna be a daddy who's in the mix, and I'm gonna be a husband who stays legit and I'm gonna be an artist who rises above, the road that is wide and filled with self love.
Since I was a kid, my dad's favorite verse has always been on the back of his business card. 'What does it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his own soul?'
It's easy for any of us to fall into the trap of setting our eyes on success and achievements.
I wanted to be honest about my struggle because I believe no one is alone in it and we can learn from each other. - Toby Mac
