A sharing by Helen Chang on how this song came to be composed:

Over the years I’ve found not being distracted at heart, while following in the footsteps of Christ, to be even more of a challenge than not to sin against the LORD. This is because I, perhaps like most people, tend to be less watchful against distractions than temptations. Actually being distracted would often make us less alert to the spiritual battle we face from all fronts every day. I then came to realize the vital need to call on the LORD as soon as I wake up in the morning so that I may be more sensitive to the moving of His spirit to keep my heart close to His. Just as Yahweh’s mercy is new every morning, so I would be ready anew to obey His word for the new day!
