You guys…10 TO 10 ON THE 10TH IS UNDERWAY! GO LISTEN TO THE STRUGGLE NOW!!!
Also, we really enjoyed these submissions for yesterday’s caption challenge from heckyeahteamjesus: http://www.quickmeme.com/Mike-Donehey-Spectator/?upcoming
Tenth Avenue North with some lucky fans in Columbus, OH, last night, talking about the new album, The Struggle, and they played a few new songs, too!
Go get it people! The Struggle is in the Top 5 and Losing is in the Top 10 - off to a good start! If you pre-order the album, you get Losing immediately and you get a bonus track in August, too. Oh, and you can see all the song titles on iTunes! :)
Looks like the Tenth Avenue North guys just released a slightly different version of their cover for their new album, The Struggle. It looks awesome, wouldn’t you agree?!
Make sure you read the journal entry Mike wrote on TenthAvenueNorth.com about it too:
“In a world that’s still trembling in the wake of the fall, our hearts are desperate for hope.
They’re hungry for freedom.
They’re longing for redemption.
And here’s the good news.
In Christ, we have all three.
We may not have answers to our questions, but we do have promises for our souls.
And the promises of God are twofold.
We are free to struggle, and we’re also not struggling to be free.
Our desire for our upcoming album, The Struggle, is that listeners will walk away with both of these truths still ringing in their ears and burning in their hearts.
We are free to fail because there’s an ocean of grace that we fall into.
But also, we have the promise of a power so strong that it raised Christ Himself, and so we know that, mystery of mysteries, we’re also not struggling to be free.
Imagine if we believed these things so strongly that we too gave grace to those tangled in their struggles while still calling them to the promise that they can be set free from them?
This artwork hopefully communicates this theme as well.
We’re in this thing together. Some fighting the waves, some breaking backs against the oars, some just trying to hold on. But one thing we know, we have each other, and most importantly, we have Christ.
And though it seems like He may have forsaken us, that He’s forgotten us, we need only look to the scars in His hands to remember He too entered the storm. He calmed the seas we could not calm. He broke the chains we could not break.
So wherever you are, whatever struggle you’re walking through, know that you’re not alone, and there’s grace, every step along the way.” -Mike Donehey
