My Soul Says Yes
This is one of the songs by Sonnie Badu that draw direct inspiration from Jesus’ words. In the Bible, the verse Mark 14:36 is about Jesus asking God to take away the cup of suffering away from him, but in the end, he accepts the will of God. Here it is Mark 14:36 He said, “Abba, Father, all things are possible for you. Remove this cup from me; yet not what I will, but what you will.”

The song is about the miracles that God showed him when he was stuck. When all seemed lost, God made a way and it ended well for him, hence the title Wonder God.
