Anna Golden's "Take It to Jesus" Offers Help To Those Who Are Suffering from Depression

Anna Golden

24-year-old St. Louis, MO native singer and songwriter Anna Golden releases her new single "Take It to Jesus" today. Released to coincide with mental health month, the song encourages those of us who are suffering from anxieties and depression to lay our woes before Jesus. Golden, who crafted the song with Jessie Early and Monty Rivera, wrote the ballad soon after her close friend suffered the unimaginable and sudden loss of her fiancé. 

Are you past the point of weary?
Is your burden weighin' heavy?
Is it all too much to carry?
Let me tell you 'bout my Jesus
Do you feel that empty feeling?
'Cause shame's done all its stealin'
And you're desperate for some healin'
Let me tell you 'bout my Jesus 

"Oftentimes when you're in a place of leadership, especially within ministry, people expect you to have the answers, to know what to say during such unimaginable grief," Golden explains.

"I literally said to my friend, 'I have nothing to say.' The last thing you want to say is 'God has a plan' or give a specific scripture. We're all so busy trying to figure out what to say and have the right answers, but nothing I can say can take away the pain you are feeling. All I can give you is Jesus."

During the writing process, it was important to Golden to make sure that the song validated all of the pain that her friend was suffering, to show that in time, there can be healing.

She shares, "While this song is directly correlated to grief, the hardest emotion to console someone in, I really believe there is a power over this song. I wrote it to help guide my friend into the presence of God and I hope it does the same for others. It sings of Jesus, the most powerful friend we have."
