10. Forever Starts Now

For the Love of the Game
by Pillar


You've been looking all your life
To find a place to hide
To cover up the hurt
And the sorrow in your cry
All the choices that we make
And the chances that we take
Define you in the end
But your heart’s about to break
These five words I pray
You would find your way
So you will always have
That one more day

Can you tell me what you’re waiting for?
Tell me what you’re looking for
Waiting on forever
Forever starts now
Can you tell me what it’s all about?
Tell me why you live in doubt
Waiting on forever
Forever starts now

You've been wasting all your time
Asking yourself why
No matter what you find
You're running out of time
(Don't waste another day)
There's exceptions to the rule
You don't have to play the fool
You don't have to run and hide
Or justify your lies
So reach inside yourself
Take the bitterness you've held
Leave it all behind
The clock starts now

Behind the Song:
We may think that eternity starts when we get to heaven. But “Forever Starts Now” reminds us that, in Rob’s words, eternity “starts the moment you’re born.” The time to start focusing on eternal things, then, is not tomorrow, but today. “Can you tell me what you’re waiting for?” the chorus asks. “Tell me what you’re looking for/Waiting on forever/Forever starts now.” Rob says this song was inspired by a series at his church titled “30 Days to Live.” “That series really challenged us as a church to have an eternal focus instead of caving in to the day-to-day hustle, where we just wander through life without thinking about God or eternity.” And thinking about eternity means thinking about where you’re going to spend it. “When you put things in eternal focus, you either win or lose. It’s heaven or hell. It’s either hope or hell. And our hope is that Jesus is real, that He is who He says He is, and that by grace, through faith in Him, we will spend eternity in His presence. So with this song, we want people to stop and think about eternity. Our lives here on earth are just a blip on the radar. They’re a mist. They’re a vapor. And then we’re gone. It’s so brief, but we think, ‘We’ve got a whole life to live.’ Well, in comparison to eternity, our lives here are pretty short. We’re not guaranteed tomorrow. So, as the end of the song says, ‘The clock starts now.’ It’s kind of an abrupt ending to an encouraging album, but hopefully it will challenge those who are unsaved to consider Christ’s offer of salvation and remind those who do have a relationship with Jesus that eternity has already begun for all of us.”
