Even though the album cover has the RIAA Parental Advisory sticker, this song has no profanities. This is most likely due to DMX's reputation. DMX has since decided to return to rap after being encouraged by Mase to wait for God's calling to do so. It is also rumored that DMX made this song because he needs a sign to preach or stay rapping. The song was produced by Scott Storch.
The song is about how DMX struggles with "trials and tribulations" throughout his life, all the while seeking strength from God to win the battles he faces.
The video of the song shows DMX in a desert, perhaps trying to reenact the story of how Jesus spent forty days and nights in the desert. It also shows pictures of hurricane stricken Louisiana and other emotive images.
