He Has Time

 

He Has Time


”This song is a true gift from the Lord, and an invitation to be brave, and let him in to our deep places of pain. Writing this song was a beautifully raw task, but the healing that has taken place in my heart as I sing and share it is worth every tear and snot rag.” (Jamie MacDonald)

”The basement where we wrote this song probably carries our story far better than our memories ever could. But those six hours of digging into the pain of sexual abuse and gathering words that truly convey that our stories aren’t over, will always be part of the lasting bond that drew us all closer to vulnerability, recovery and each other.” (Brittney Spencer)

"In the era of #MeToo where is Jesus? Through a 10 hour day of writing, wrestling, listening, pouring out, and healing we searched for the answer to this question. As that day unfolded and healing took place it was made abundantly clear that he was right there in the midst of the pain and confusion. Not only was he there, but he wasn’t in a rush to get us out of his presence. He has all the time needed to take what’s wrong and make it right." (Ben Hardesty)

“Writing “He Has Time” with my good friends have has been a gift. I was able to sit and listen to the stories of my beautiful sisters and I’m just so proud of their strength and vulnerability.” (Orlando Palmer)
