Behind the Song:
“My testimony is largely tied with the revelation of God’s love. I remember reading I John 4:8 which simply says, “God is love,” and it changed my life. I was so warn out trying to love others on my own strength. When I realized that God is the only way to love, perfect love, it dawned on me I could never be or have love unless it was from Him. It really strengthened my focus on my need for Jesus in every day life, thus becoming a prayer of mine, a prayer for God the Spirit to take control.

The outro (Chapter 13) is based on a teaching called “The Love Chapter” taught by Britt Merrick at Reality. I’ve listened to this teaching at least 30 times since I first received it from a friend many years ago, and it’s still impacting my life!" - Michael Watson (Above The Golden State)
