In her debut single, Mindy Smith finds a simple answer in the midst of a personal crisis: "come to Jesus." The Long Island native was struggling to make it in Nashville, living in a bad neighborhood, where she got mugged, and failing to move her music career forward. Out of desperation, she imagined what God would tell her, and a song about keeping the faith emerged.
She recalled in a Songfacts interview
: "All these things started closing in and I didn't know what I was going to do. I had to really find my faith, not only in something bigger than myself, but in what I was doing. That song, the nature of that song, came from that struggle.
Not only that, but a lot of times I find myself struggling spiritually, like am I even doing this life right? I question myself a lot. There were some other things that were distracting me from being my best self in my personal life as well. To find that balance, my approach is to write a song."
