Music and the Gospel: ” Beyond Me,” TobyMac; 5th Sunday of Lent

It may seem like just yesterday we received ashes on our foreheads. Now we are nearing the end of Lent. We hear Jesus utters the words: “I am troubled now. Yet what should I say, save me from this hour?” Even in this moment of inner turmoil, Jesus understands his clarity of purpose; he prays to glorify God’s name. “Beyond Me” is a song that takes us into the great unknown Jesus faces.

Key Lyrics: You take me to the place where I know I need you / Straight tot he depths that I can’t handle on my own / And the Lord I know, I know I need you / Take me to your great unknown

Questions: How have you felt stretched this Lent to go beyond yourself and glorify God? When have you felt inner turmoil? How has God been present to you in those moments?
