TobyMac “Eye On It”

I’ve been listening a lot to TobyMac’s “Eye On It” (2012). It’s an awesome CD. Here is the official music video for his title song—one of my favorites. It was likely inspired from 1 Corinthians 9:24-27 and Philippians 3:7-14 (see below).

 “Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may win. 25 Everyone who competes in the games exercises self-control in all things. They then do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. 26 Therefore I run in such a way, as not without aim; I box in such a way, as not beating the air; 27 but I discipline my body and make it my slave, so that, after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified.” (1 Corinthians 9:24-27, NASB)

“But whatever things were gain to me, those things I have counted as loss for the sake of Christ. 8 More than that, I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but rubbish so that I may gain Christ, 9 and may be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own derived from the Law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which comes from God on the basis of faith, 10 that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death; 11 in order that I may attain to the resurrection from the dead. 12 Not that I have already obtained it or have already become perfect, but I press on so that I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus. 13 Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 3:7-14, NASB)

“Eye On It”

Eye on it, eye on it
Eye on it, eye on it

Eye on it
Eye on it
Eye on it, eye on it

I set my eyes to the west, walkin’ away from it all
Reachin’ for what lies ahead, I got my eye on it
I see my sweat hit the ground
I put my foot in the block
This is the race of my life
And I can’t wait for this shot

‘Cause I can feel the wind at my back
Chest is pumpin’ like a heart attack
Feet are moving and my mind is locked
Pressin’ on with everything I got

I got my eye on it
I got my eye on it
I got my eye on it
Eye on it

I got my eye on the prize, I got my eye on it
I got my eye on the prize, I got my eye on it
I got my eye on the prize, I got my eye on it
I got my eye on it, and I will not quit

I got a new passenger to help me navigate the way
So when my heart hits the floor I can recalibrate
I feel the deeper callin’ me, all else is fadin’ in the past
So let me run in the race that I know is built to last

‘Cause I can feel the wind at my back
Chest is pumpin’ like a heart attack
Feet are moving and my mind is locked
Pressing on I gotta take my shot

I got my eye on it
I got my eye on it
I got my eye on it
Eye on it

I got my eye on the prize, I got my eye on it
I got my eye on the prize, I got my eye on it
I got my eye on the prize, I got my eye on it
I got my eye on the prize and I will not quit

Eye on it
