Joining Hoda Kotb on her Quoted By series, Candace Cameron Bure shares about the worship song that is helping her get through this pandemic.
“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.” She says 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.”
Then Candace goes on to share her next quote with Hoda.
“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.”
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 heart and holds us up when we feel like we are falling apart. He is where we find true rest and peace.
Candace then goes on to talk 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.”
