Nordeman likens herself to a stone in a river on this track: still rough and grainy, but gradually smoothed out by God's waters. She told CBN
: "I always go back to that song and remind myself what it's like to be that little stone in a river. One that only becomes smooth after years and years of water rushing over it. Only then are the rough edges of our lives smoothed out. I think 'River God' is probably the life song for me."
