Made To Love

Album: Portable Sounds (2006)
  • TobyMac explained in publicity materials: "The heart of the song was simply a prayer that unravels in conversational terms, honest and vulnerable. I describe my morning 'The dream is fading now I'm staring at the door.'" God it's you and me here alone, but I'm about to go face this day and all that comes with it. It's so easy for all of us to forget what matters to us in the midst of the chaos the world throws at us. This song is about the moment we remember… 'I was made to love and be loved by you.'"
  • This track made its mark in space in September 2009 when it was played to wake up the Space Shuttle crew as Discovery closed in on the international space station. Astronaut Nicole Stott's 7-year-old son, Roman, requested the song.
