"Mercy" was written during a difficult season for Renzema that was fraught with so much anxiety and depression that it nearly left him paralyzed.
"I didn't have a lot of direction or aim, and I felt kind of just out to sea," confesses Renzema. "There were a lot of days where I would sleep through the morning after staying up really late. My schedule was just a mess. When I read that verse that says His mercies are new every morning, I remember thinking, well, I just slept through my whole morning.
"The chorus of 'Mercy' comes from a place where the semantics are not really what matters in the declaration from the Lord," continues Renzema, analyzing Lamentations 3:23. "It's the fact that His mercy is constantly finding us even if your morning is 1:00 pm or 6:00 am after being up all night with an anxiety attack."
