The band shares: "Have you ever struggled with depression or the thought that God's plan wasn't good enough? That's where the story behind our song Counting Every Blessing comes from. This song came from out of a season of depression, because we needed to be reminded of the goodness and faithfulness of God. 'Counting every blessing' isn't a glib Christian phrase for us, but a battle cry, an attitude to carry us through the darkest of nights. We hope whatever season you find yourself in today that this song would be an encouragement for you too."
