The song "Your Love Remains" is a particularly personal song talking about the concrete love of God. Originally it was written in 2009 while I was working through a season of depression and anxiety.
I came upon Psalm 103:17 "But the love of the Lord remains forever with those who fear him." The truth that there is nothing that can ever separate me from Gods love, and that His love remains forever no matter my circumstances felt like medicine to a sick heart. I grabbed my guitar and wrote the song in less than hour on my back porch.
Over time the song became very special to me and to our church, and my family. Quickly and suddenly my mother passed away in 2012. Because it had become my mother's favorite song I played it at her funeral; And never wanted to play it again.
When thinking through this latest album, the band mentioned that we should record #yourloveremains. I had not sung or played the song since my mother's funeral. Needless to say, the weight of the song and the importance of the words became even more poignant once we decided to record it. With that said, there was new life breathed into the arrangement and a new musical atmosphere surrounding it; so much so we decided to name the entire album "Your Love Remains". It's our prayer that the truth of God's word found in this song will meet you and encourage you wherever you are today. #behindthesong #psalm103 #Godslove
