During an interview with Hoda Kotb, Candace Cameron Bure quotes a Matt Maher song as her go-to for encouragement in tough times. And this worship song is a great source of inspiration for all of us during this pandemic!
In a Today Show series called ‘Quoted By’, Hoda Kotb talks with various celebrities about their favorite inspirational quotes. And Christian celebrity Candace Cameron Bure had some good ones!
"Candace, I'm so happy that we're doing your quotes during this time because, I gotta say, people are looking for hope and for light," Hoda says to Candace during the interview. "And I think they wanna know what's your North Star when it comes to quotes?"
Candace goes on to talk about her family motto, which is "Excuses are for losers."
Candace explains that this quote is not about being a winner, but it is more about character building.
"It's saying there's no excuses, just try, go for it," she says. "It's like the best parenting advice I've ever given to my kids."
The next quote Candace Cameron Bure shares with Hoda Kotb is from a Matt Maher song.
"This is from a song from Matt Maher who wrote it in 2013. It's called ‘Lord, I Need You' and it's my everything," Candace shares. "It encompasses, I mean Hoda, you know how important my Christian faith is, and it's the foundation of who I am. And I could pick a Bible verse and there's a billion that I could give you, but when I need to feel, and when I need a reminder, this song and the lyrics in it are everything."
Inspiring Matt Maher Song ‘Lord I Need You’
The song that Candace talks about is a beautiful worship song that reminds us of how much we need the Lord. He is the one that guides our hearts and holds us up when we feel like we are falling apart. He is where we find true rest and peace.
In addition to sharing her quotes, Candace talks about how important it has been for her to rely on her faith during this time.
"We're all worried, because we don't know what's gonna happen, we don't. And I think the unknown is the scariest for all of us," says Candace. "We don't necessarily have job security, some people don't know where their next meal is coming from, you know, schools are out, and parents are homeschooling for the first time...I mean there's just so many unknown questions."
Amidst all the unknowns, Candace shares that she can always look to the Lord during this time of uncertainty and be rooted in her faith.
"The Lord gives all of us not only grace but hope and promises and tells us not to worry," Candace says. "He's like, ‘I know every hair that's numbered on your head. I provide for every bird in the air and every animal. Don't you think that you're more valuable than them?"
