Watch the video for "God Will See Us Through” here: https://youtu.be/NWpm8vDOQ7I
Like many Americans, Keskeys, who has a journalism background and had been a talk radio producer early in her career, keeps a watchful eye on current events. "I saw a near Civil War bitterness occurring and it got me thinking back to the real Civil War and other trying times in our country,” says Keskeys. "In those dark times, there was a thread that kept us going, and that was our reliance on God. I remembered Congress singing 'God Bless America' on the Capitol Steps in the days after 9/11. And I remembered what a beautiful sight that was. It brought such comfort. I thought, if only we could all do that now. And that really is how this song was born.”
As we face some of our most difficult days, Keskeys is thankful that the song's message of hope is touching hearts. Keskeys edited the video herself, carefully choosing clips that represented the message that she wanted to get across. The video was completed prior to the current controversy surrounding American statues and monuments, but as it happens, the video features many of those iconic American symbols. Says Keskeys, "I am thankful for that because I think it reminds us how important they are to America and how much they mean to Americans. That has been emphasized repeatedly from the numerous comments I’ve received.”
Those comments have flooded in as the video continues to be shared via social media, with viewers noting the relevance of the video’s lyrics and imaging during these troubled times and many stating that the video "needs to be heard by every American.”
“I believe that there is a national grieving taking place,” says Keskeys. "We’ve lost loved ones to Covid-19, and we’ve lost precious life events and milestones such as graduations, weddings, funerals, and birthdays. Businesses have been lost and destroyed. Monuments have been threatened and ripped down. For good or bad, it is loss. And loss is one of the most difficult things we deal with. But, we have a God who brings hope because He restores what has been lost."
Adds Keskeys, "My only hope for this video is that it will continue to be seen, and that we will continue to pray and look to Him knowing that He will see us through."
