“I really feel like Satan was trying to get a hold of me, keep me from fully giving my life to the Lord,” Lindsay McCaul says. “It’s a control thing. You want to control an area in your life. The Lord had to really break me of that and show me that He’s in control of my life.”
Lindsay McCaul is a fairly new artist. Her first album was just released in January 2012, and I immediately liked her. She has such genuine lyrics. This ballad in particular is so beautiful. So many times, we take our people, or possessions, or even our pain, and we hold on so tight. Unwilling to let God have complete control over those things that we feel define us. If we would just let go and let God fill those places in our lives where we are so empty, we could be made whole. This song is a prayer to God to help us do just that.
Lindsay McCaul wrote this song specifically about her struggle with an eating disorder. She admits the healing didn’t happen overnight and her experience left her with a burden for young girls and what they face in today’s society. “It took years for the Lord to get that deep and let the Word wash over me and scrub off the influence of the world,” she says. “The Lord showed me that the root of all of that for me was that I was so desperate for people’s approval. I can see that back in high school. I can see that back in college, even getting into the music industry. You can’t please all the people all the time. You can’t even please most of the people all the time and why would you even want to? The world says it matters who you look like, but what matters is what the Lord says about us and that is the only thing that lasts – who we are in Him and the identity that we have in Jesus.”
