The song was inspired by lead singer Mike Weaver's struggles with his self-image. He explained to NewReleaseTuesday
: "'I've been a fat guy my whole life and that's part of the story of Big Daddy Wave. That self-deprecating humor is mostly a defense mechanism. When you have kids you start thinking of life in a different way. My wife and I also watch the TV show The Biggest Loser
. In 2009, we came up with the idea for me to lose 90 pounds in 2009. I was out sweating every day and losing weight. Halfway through the year, I lost 50 pounds. Then into the Fall, I lost 70 pounds. At the beginning of December, I had lost 80 pounds. The last day of December I got on the scale and I lost 84 pounds for the year. That doesn't sound bad, it was like losing a middle school kid off of your body. Truly, there has been this thing in my life, that even missing my goal by just 6 pounds resonated with me that I am a failure. That's a ridiculous thing, even as I hear it come out of my mouth, I feel like I failed. The worst days in my life are the photo shoots for new albums. The night before the photo shoot, I stood in front of the mirror hating what I saw, and I was harsh towards myself. The Holy Spirit told me, 'You are mine.' That led to writing this song."
