THE STORY BEHIND THE MUSIC
Nicoshia Wynn is a singer, songwriter, and speaker who loves to encourage others through leading worship and her unwavering faith in Christ. Nicoshia was inspired to write her new single after her youngest son was born a day shy of 25 weeks, weighing 1 pound and 14 ounces (he was about the size of a half sheet of paper). Her son was in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at the University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital for more than 100 days, during which he was on a ventilator for 8 weeks (touch and go), had heart surgery, approximately 3 -5 infections (pneumonia and e-coli) and was diagnosed with a lung disease called Bronchopulmnary Dysplasia (BPD).
This experience activated her faith and trust in God. After four long months of Nicoshia’s son being in the NICU, he was discharged from the hospital two weeks prior to Christmas and was called the “miracle baby” by doctors because he beat all of the statistics and odds of being severely premature.
As Nicoshia reflected on this experience and others, she knew that her and her husband’s strength during difficult times was only because of God’s holiness, awesomeness, and their faith! She also knew that no matter what the circumstance was and as painful as it was to see her son in this circumstance, she knew that God still deserved his praise and their worship.
Her new single reflects the essence of God’s goodness and His faithfulness. She hopes that this song will encourage and inspire others to never let their circumstance outrun their worship and love for God.
