STORY BEHIND THE SONG, as told by Chris McLeod: "A few months ago, my daughter was just learning how to stand. She crawled into the kitchen and pulled herself up by the window. She had the biggest smile on her face as she looked outside. It made me wonder what could be going through her head in that moment. How big must life feel to her. Full of mystery and unknown. The next day, I couldn't stop thinking about that experience, so I wrote "Life is Happening Now". I desperately hope that she lives her entire life with that kind of awe and wonder; that she has big ideas, and lives her dreams.
I think that a lot of us have big ideas for our lives. We think that someday, we will do great things, but we rarely get around to living it out. Or we wait around for life to happen to us. But life doesn't happen someday, it is happening today. Our life consists of every choice we make every day. This is an idea that is extremely important to me. Jesus came to bring his kingdom to this earth today. He doesn't want us to wait until he returns to start living in his kingdom. He is calling us to walk with him every day. That it may be on earth as it is in heaven. I hope that you enjoy "Life is Happening Now", and that it impacts your life like it has impacted mine."
