A conversation we had with Natalie Grant the other day takes on new meaning after the attacks in Paris. We feel so helpless after such senseless loss, but this song challenges us to be the light of Jesus in a dark time.
I think that people are prone to panic. Something goes on in the world and they’re like, ‘I’m just going to hide under my covers until Jesus comes back’. We panic.
This song is all about reminding people that it’s not that there’s a greater presence of darkness in the world, I think there’s been an absence of light. If we could really embrace being the light more than ever before and get our mind off of our own struggle, this song says why sit around and wait for a miracle to come when we could be one? -Natalie Grant
