Don't forget the things that He has done before
And remember He can do it all once more
Gokey explained to Billboard
that he wrote the song to encourage those people going through the dark times not to give up hope and push on through.
Said Gokey: "I was a widower and now I'm married again, but there are many who try to escape the pain of losing a spouse by doing bad things like drugs. So this song is for those people - not just widows and widowers - to give them hope. If you've been praying for a long time and haven't found the answer, you're gonna need to look at all the good things that God has done. What you feel now many not be the truest, and God is not finished with you yet."
