Downhearted at being stuck home without any outlet to perform music, Wickham needed some joy and thankfulness to flood his heart. This song's message is, though happiness comes and goes, the believer can always have joy. This is because while happiness is based on circumstances, joy is rooted in identity and the Christian knows they have a Father in heaven who will never separate us from His love.
"The first verse of the song is about who God is," Wickham explained. "The second verse is about what God has done for me, and the bridge is who I am because of it. I decided to write a song about who God is, what He's done, and who I am because of Him. That way, even if I'm not happy all the time, I can still have joy. Jesus said, "take heart, I have overcome the world."
