Why Christian Singer Tasha Layton Believes ‘It’s Going to be Ok’

By Movieguide® Contributor

Christian artist Tasha Layton recently revealed the deep meaning behind the lyrics of her song, “Into the Sea (It’s Gonna Be Ok).”

“I think the line, ‘it’s gonna be ok,’ is something that a lot of people need to hear,” Layton said.

The musician shared with the Christian Beat that she and the other songwriters pulled inspiration from memories of hard circumstances to create the lyrics.

“I hope when people hear this song, they are able to access the most honest thoughts and emotions they’re feeling right now and truly hand them over to God,” she said. “I hope they sense God assuring them that, no matter what they are facing, it’s going to be ok.”

“Even with my four-year-old son Levi, you know, when he stubs his toe or hurts himself, falls off his little scooter, or whatever, sometimes I just take his little head in my hand and his face, and I just grab him like this and say, ‘You know what, buddy, it’s gonna be ok,’” the singer said in an interview.

“And I think we all kind of need God to do that for us,” she continued. “Not because God promises that everything’s going to work out the way we want. He never promises in Scripture that we won’t have trouble; in fact, he says when you have trouble, and then he goes on in different scriptures to say, I’ll never leave you, I’ll never forsake you.”

The song’s chorus reads:

Though the mountains may be moved into the sea

Though the ground beneath might crumble and give way

I can hear my Father singing over me

“It’s gonna be ok, it’s gonna be ok”

“It’s going to be okay because his presence is always with us, and even to the end, even in the worst scenario, he set eternity in our hearts, and we’re going to be with him in paradise in heaven forever,” she said.

“It’s important to know that it’s not a shallow theology of the chorus, ‘it’s going to be okay,’ but it’s actually pretty deep to say ‘it’s gonna be ok,’ because no matter what, I’m with you,” Layton said.

Movieguide® recently reported on Layton’s decision to choose faith over fame:

Award-winning Christian singer-songwriter Tasha Layton toured with pop star Katy Perry for four years, but when she was given the opportunity to make her mark in pop music, she turned it down to follow God instead…

After Layton toured with Perry, she “felt stuck.” But soon, she grounded herself in her faith.

“That’s the impetus for everything that I do,” Layton expressed. “I want [people] to see God’s hand in my life over the years, through the valleys and the hard times… And when they see God’s hand in my story, my prayer is that they’ll be able to see God in their stories, too.”
