All Things

Album: Love Is The Evidence (2013)
  • songfacts ®
  • This is a track from Love Is the Evidence, the first studio album by the Christian Contemporary-Rock band Citizen Way. The band name's came from their desire to demonstrate they are citizens in the kingdom of God following in the way of Jesus.
  • This song of thanksgiving was inspired by a couple of events. Frontman Ben Calhoun explained to Crosswalk: "The first part was from when my daughter Ava and I met a homeless lady in the park. She told me she was thankful for what she had. She had nothing. I gave her some money, a new backpack, and my contact info. She called a couple of weeks later to say thanks and that she found a place to stay.

    "The bridge of the song was written in response to a friend battling Leukaemia and our friend Craig from Klove who told me about his sons being on a missions trip when the van broke down," he continued. "They sang songs on the side of the road and thanked God because the Bible says in 1 Thessalonians 5:18 to 'give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.' This verse is hard to act on, but it's such a great reminder to be thankful in all circumstance, in all things."
