Theme[edit]

According to the official online release, Tedashii did this album with the intent of speaking to "the hearts of believers with the hope of eternity spent with Christ, no longer living in guilt for what has been uncovered in our lives", as found in 2Corinthians 4:16-17. The release ends with the statement: "We can and should live with the end in mind."[8]
