Christian singer-songwriter Katy Weirich showcases strength amidst struggle in her newest release, "Blue Jay." Singing about her experience with severe postpartum depression and anxiety after her second child, Weirich recalls a feeling of utter hopelessness.

"I was nearly hospitalized and was having panic attacks causing me to collapse, and I longed to go to sleep and not wake up," she explains. The song recounts her hardship as she pleads to God for a "glimpse of you." As expected, God delivered, and never in the way she expected. After a lengthy period of time during her recovery, she began to see blue jays at just the right time in her day-to-day activities that would give her a glimpse of strength and encouragement to persevere. When on a trip to Scotland after her recovery, Weirich remembers seeing an entire flock of blue jays, which finally inspired her to write this song.

Katy says the blue jays signified to her "a hug from God and a tangible reminder that He saw me where I was and that I just had to keep going and to trust that He was right there beside me and would not leave." As Weirich gains strength, the song builds momentum. "You are carrying me, sustaining me. You are healing me, I will be free," she sings with rising confidence throughout the rest of the song.

In this way, "Blue Jays" is an authentic representation of the struggles of life and keeping the faith amidst darkness. Weirich doesn't sugarcoat the pain, but she also doesn't discount the miracle. She shares that when she got back from her trip, she flipped to the next page on her calendar, which had a photo from the exact place in Scotland she had just visited. "It was a sign to me that God had gotten me through. He never left me, not even for a minute," she adds.

Weaving both the story of the blue jays and scripture into the song, Weirich explains that a lot of inspiration came from Job and wanting to "showcase the quality of God," which is "El Roi," meaning "the God who sees me." "Blue Jay" is one single to come out as part of her upcoming EP Out of the Blue, set to release on June 17. "This song will forever remind me how I was carried and sustained by the Lord. I honestly don't know if I'd be alive today if I didn't know Jesus Christ."
