Original Master MultiTracks for Into Light from Red Letter Society are now available! They share with us the story behind the album below.
Even as worship leaders, we are not immune to the attack of depression. The songs of Into Light were birthed during one of those dark seasons of attack. In the pit of misery, the promises of God seem distant and fake. However, in the darkest times it is important to proclaim the truth of God’s faithfulness over our circumstances. Psalm 40:2-3 (ESV) reminds of this truth:
He drew me up from the pit of destruction,
out of the miry bog,
and set my feet upon a rock,
making my steps secure.
He put a new song in my mouth,
a song of praise to our God.
Many will see and fear,
and put their trust in the Lord.
This passage became the anthem that pushed us toward writing the entire Into Light album. Over fear and depression, Into Light sings new songs of the promise of God—He is our Light, our Hope, and our Peace.
