It took me a long time to release this song. For several reasons. But mainly, I was afraid of judgement. As a christian, I feel I am expected to always be joyful in the public eye. To never let people see my struggles. But to only project positivity would, in a way, be lying to you. I do struggle. In fact, I struggle often. I wrestle with temptation and doubt almost on a daily basis.
This song came out of a very spiritually dry season in my life. Everything was going right, but I was still so unhappy. I had forgotten how to pray, and was basically just going through the motions. My music was branded, and fans expected consistency. So I continued to create and release feel-good music that wasn’t really speaking to my soul.
In the midst of all of that, this song was created. And it was a breath of fresh air. I had something that spoke to my pain. I had something that was real. But I couldn’t show anybody, because this wasn’t who I was.
After much hesitation and prayer, I have decided to come clean. I expect judgement, but that’s ok. Because at the end of the day, God knows who I am. And that’s whether or not I put it on display in a song. I don’t glorify or glamorize my struggles; I simply express them.
