“I am excited to work with Phil Thornton and his team on this new album, and to release a song that I believe is perfectly suited for a time such as this,” shares Sapp. “People are feeling frustrated and overwhelmed, challenged and attacked. People are feeling neglected because a lot of things seem to not be going their way, but we can’t confuse being neglected for being processed. We have to remember that the tougher things get, that often means we are closer to God’s destiny for our lives…Attacks against us as a people intensify when we are closer to what God said and pre-ordained for us. Whatever you may be going through, this song is saying ‘don’t stress about it, you are close.”
