Story Behind the Song
Every believer journeys through a lot of “Prodigal Son” and “Lost Sheep” moments in their faith. When he/she realizes that they are drifting away from God and turns to Him in repentance, He welcomes them back with open arms and rejoices over them. This song, penned based on such experiences is a supplication to God asking Him to lead us with His Spirit.
I wrote the Chorus and couple of lines of the verse in 2013 and totally forgot about it. Fast forward to end of 2018, when I was planning to move to Virginia from Los Angeles, I was going through all the old files and stumbled across this tune. Finished writing in 2018 and recorded the full song on my phone in early 2019 right before the move to Virginia. We started the project in Jan 2020 and then pandemic happened forcing multiple delays, but God has been faithful and leading the team and I through this exciting journey.
I am thankful to God for putting together such a wonderful team consisting of Ravinder Vottepu, Keba Jeremiah, Enoch Jagan and others who gave their best. We started the project with tracking of guitars first and Keba’s guitars added soul to the song and Enoch wonderfully arranged and tracked rest of the instruments. Bro. Ravinder’s spirit filled rendition took it to the next level.
Special thanks to my family and friends who have been a great support throughout this journey with their prayers and encouragement. Pray that this song ministers to many and brings them closer to God!
