I listened to Oceans for the first time in a while a couple days ago. Every time I hear it I think back to when it first came out towards the end of 2013. I loved it immediately. The bridge goes like this: Continue reading “Oceans”

Oh, and He already knows my every need
Surely He will come and rescue me

When I hear that verse, I think of times when trial by combat was a popular method of determining a person’s guilt or innocence. If the accused couldn’t Continue reading “Jesus, My Champion”
