In this song, Nichole Nordeman
makes a case for God as if explaining it to a non-Christian friend. "What if you're right?," she asks, making the point that if God doesn't exist, our stories are over at death. But if He does exist, there is an opportunity to share in His love.
"I think it's so important to have people in our lives who don't speak our same faith language," she told CBN. "I'm just never going to be that person who has the script or the really organized outline of how to share my faith, but those little opportunities that God gives us to sit down and have a cup of coffee with someone or engage someone in a difficult conversation, it sharpens me. It sharpens my faith to have people around me who don't speak that same language. It sends me back to the Bible. It sends me back to God with my own questions, making sure that I do know what I believe instead of just reciting what I've heard my whole life. So, 'What If' is a heavy song, because there's a lot wrapped up in that."
