“This song for me was just a reminder of identity,” she explained.
“It was a reminder that I know when I’m weak, He’s strong – so how do I change that and bring that into my everyday life? When I feel inadequate how is it that there’s always these moments where I feel like God just steps in and supersedes my inadequacies? This entire song was [written] so every single day I would get up on stage and remind myself – no, this is the truth, this is the truth, this is the truth. Don’t get buried in confusion. Don’t get buried in waywardness. Just remember to steady the course, steady the course.”
