On Repeat: "Steady"

I haven't been able to watch BET's Sunday Best in a long while and I'm not yet intrigued enough to look into this artist or the rest of her work, but I'm starting to really like this song. "Steady" is a newish single from Alexis Spight, the runner-up of the most recent season of Sunday Best. The song is based on Psalms 1:3, which speaks about people who delight in God's word instead of submitting to toxic and ungodly influences:

And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper (Psalms 1:3)

The chorus of "Steady" references this verse:

Like a tree, planted by the rivers of water / Lord keep me steady / Keep me steady 

Essentially, this song is about calling on God to keep you focused and on the right track. Fighting to keep your head above water in life and also to abide by God's will, representing His glory... this is a fight that I think all Christians can relate to, especially us young'uns. Again, I'm not really interested in Alexis Spight as an artist (yet!). But this song of hers has spoken to my soul and helped me discover my new favorite Bible verse!
