Songfacts®:

  • Shadows is the second EP from Switchfoot frontman Jon Foreman's solo project The Wonderlands. On this worship track, Foreman settles his doubts about God's love for him. He explained in a CBN interview: "Believing in God feels like ... I can mentally assent to the idea of an omniscient, transcendent, all powerful being that creates, that the matter of our universe comes from somewhere, that color and the vibration, the eyes and ears, and bodies pick up these vibrations in the form of light and color and sound, that this world that we sit on, and breathe, and consume daily, it comes from somewhere and the idea that it comes from someone, that feels like something that I can mentally assent to pretty easy. The hard part for me would be that He loves me, that God loves me. That feels like it's a difficult jump. I'm aware of the darkness within me. I'm aware that the things I do wrong, the things I say wrong, the insignificance of my own existence against the backdrop of millions of stars and galaxies, and all of that. So to me 'Your Love is Enough' is ... the verse that talks about those doubts and wrestling with those fears which you're carrying, of course, is kind of meant to be this response to all of those doubts and fears reminding us all that God's love in action ascends all of that."
