'Drowning was inspired by witnessing a toxic relationship hurt a really close friend of mine. I wanted to create a song of hope for them. Although my friend felt completely lost and lonely, I felt compelled to remind them that they are "...not drowning". Matthew 11:28 says "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest". Cast ALL of your cares on HIM! Although sometimes we feel like we are drowning, know that He is already pulling you out of the water.' -Skylee Shea
