THE STORY BEHIND THE SONG
For over the last year, Father God's been teaching me how to live from a place of rest. My life up until then was feeling quite busy, rushing from one place to the other, while trying to keep track of the million and one things that were always running through my mind. I knew at the back of my mind that this wasn't how Father God intended me to live.
Reading Matthew 11:28-30 started to speak to me, especially the Message version. "Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you'll recover your life. I'll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you'll learn to live freely and lightly."
During that time, I started to learn the importance of being still before God, and I found that I could hear him more clearly, as there were fewer distractions. In the process, he started to reveal to me more about my identity as his daughter. Which then filled with a peace that enabled me to go about with whatever Father God wanted me to do.
I was leading worship at one evening service last summer, and in a spontaneous moment, I started singing out what was to become the first verse.
The following day I sat down at my piano and started worshipping, again I came out with was the start of the verse of this song. So I began to record it on my phone as I played. I then spent the following couple of months developing this as a song, although I struggled a lot with getting the chorus right.
