Yeah, yeah it’s Monday, but that doesn’t have to be a bad thing!
Andy frequently gives away cool stuff on Twitter and Facebook, but this week all you Tumblr folks get dibs on a copy of Their / They’re / There’s first 12” signed by the entire band!

I’ve been thinking about this a lot today.
Also, as well as today resolved, it’s been a stressful day.
Glad it’s over.
Today, I was confronted head on with God’s endless grace. It was sobering, humbling, terrifying, and beautiful. Sobering, because today I was forced to see my brokenness in full view. Humbling and terrifying, because I now realize how fragile I can be, and how I need Christ on a minute by minute basis.
Beautiful? His grace was beautiful. Now, I didn’t do anything stupid today. But I almost did. And when I realized my foolishness, He was right there in a way I’m not sure I ever experienced before.
Right now, I’m writing an arrangement of Horatio Spafford’s “It is well” for choir. I have had the words of that hymn spinning around in my head for a long time now:
My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!
Today, when I prayed in repentance, I could feel it.
Today, my Savior told me - IT. IS. WELL.
No guilt. No more shame.

I’ve had worse. *thumbs up*
