  • There is no humility I can manufacture, no penitence I can create that can move the heart of God. True brokenness is a gift from Him alone. Fernando Ortega
  • The Gospel is not enhanced by the dramatic testimony of a movie star, athlete, or recovering addict. Christ’s work stands all on its own. Fernando Ortega
  • I always ask my wife Toni to remind me of stuff, that way when I forget, it is totally her fault. Crowder

Song of the Week

Your Love is Enough by Jon Foreman  

This week’s song of the week is from Jon Foreman’s Wonderlands: Shadows EP released this summer. About the song, Foreman said “I believe in a God who’s bigger than my questions; bigger than my fears and my doubts. I believe He’s not offended by my honest search for truth and that He’s not ashamed or scared when I ask the big questions. The love of the maker and the redeemer of our lost planet is enough. I hope that this song reminds you of the bigger story of grace and redemption.” You can listen to the song here.

Who can satisfy these longings?
Who could wash these doubts away?
Who can save me from my follies
Even when the feelings fade?

Your love is enough
Your love is enough

Who can find me in this darkness?
Who alone can help me stand?
You could find a way to find me
Even love me as I am

Your love is enough
Your love is enough
You’re my harbor in this lonely storm
Your love

Here in my maker’s arms
I find my soul
Here in my maker’s arms
I’m finally home
Here in my maker’s arms
Come home
I’m coming home

Your love is enough
Your love is enough
You’re my harbor in this lonely storm
Your love
Yes, Your love
Your love is enough
