Everything Is Mine in You
‘Everything Is Mine In You,’ co-written with Christian recording artist Ellie Holcomb, is a song about realizing Jesus is all we need in tough, lonely times and is Nockels' favorite on the album. She and Holcomb hadn’t met each other before writing the song, but within 10 minutes of meeting, they were sharing stories about sweet friends that were going through suffering. They found themselves in tears over the Bible as they wrote this.
“Her friend was going through infertility and I was telling her about a friend that was waiting for the right man and really wants to be married,” said Nockels. Through those exchanges, Holcomb knew it was a song for women. They began sharing Scripture. What was on Holcomb’s heart was Romans 4, which is against all hope, Abraham hoped. Nockels’ Scripture was 1 Corinthians 3, where Paul talks about not boasting in man. That line of Scripture burned on her heart.
Nockels not only wanted to find a way to say ‘All is Yours’ but also wanted to make it personal, so she turned it around. “If Paul says ‘All is Yours,” then I was like ‘Everything Is Mine,’” said Nockels.
That was the hook. Notebooks, Bibles and Holcomb's guitar in hand, the lines started flowing and they began to fill each other’s gaps. The chorus was “here is why everything is mine” because He is master over all. He’s seated in the Heavenly. He is our hiding place. In Him, we have everything we need, Nockels said.
