Share the Love for Quinn: Music for Monday

I chose to follow Jesus a long time ago. And I can't imagine going through some of the things that we've gone through without him. It hasn't been easy and that is with him. Faith and hope aren't portals through which you crawl into sunshine, sparkles, and fairy dust. Faith and hope are the little sparks of light in a dark cave.

In this journey with Quinn, I have been reminded on more than one occasion that everybody has something. Everybody has something that they have to work through, deal with, struggle with, even suffer through. When things have been hard we have needed people in our lives to remind us of what is true and hold out that spark of light in the dark.

We all need that in our lives. Real life isn't about the sparkles and the fairy dust. It is about family and community. About telling the truth and lifting one another up in prayer. It is about authenticity in suffering. It is about the faith and hope in Jesus Christ. These are some truths that we hold on to in this journey. Not because they've come easy...but because they are life and breath and real.

We are excited to share some more this week about Quinn and this journey with cystic fibrosis. And maybe you have a question about CF or something you've wondered but were afraid to ask, consider this an invitation to put it out there.

Consider donating to Team Win with Quinn as we raise money to further Cystic Fibrosis research.

You are God Alone
by Cynthia and Billy James Foote

You are not a God
Created by human hands
You are not a god
Dependent on any mortal man
You are not a god
In need of anything we can give
By Your plan, that’s just the way it is

You are God alone
From before time began
You were on Your throne
Your are God alone
And right now
In the good times and bad
You are on Your throne
You are God alone

You’re the only God
Whose power none can contend
You’re the only God
Whose name and praise will never end
You’re the only God
Who’s worthy of everything we can give
You are God
And that’s just the way it is


That’s what You are
