Brand reflecting on how it felt to be closer to God, yet sometimes not feeling his presence.

"It’s a beautiful journey to go on. I know I’m just at the beginning. I know I’m just learning. I know there’s so much more to learn, and I’m so excited to learn more from you and for us to learn together," Brand added.
