Singer-songwriter, RukyBatEl releases her debut single titled ‘Still God’.
Inspired by Numbers 23:19, Psalm 1:3 and Matthew 5:16, she sings about her experience and faith in God who always comes through regardless of how we feel about our situations.
Speaking about the story behind the song, RukyBatEl shares: “My life is a living proof that God always keeps His promises. There have been moments I felt He has forgotten what He promised me or I didn’t hear Him clearly and such times can be discouraging. You feel alone and helpless, like a child without a covering.
But I always picture God looking at me at such moments saying “My darling daughter, I know what I said to you and I haven’t forgotten. I love you too much to leave you hanging. Just allow me fulfil my promise my way”.
So I’ve learnt to submit my cares and fears to God at all times knowing that no matter how I feel or what it is, He is still God and He loves me too much to not keep His word to me”.
Produced by guitarist, singer-songwriter Nelson Jason, who RukyBatEl credits as giving her the push to becoming a recording artist, “Still God” is a blend of R&B Pop, reflecting her love for unique sounds and mix of genres.
