Kari Jobe Has Done It Again!

If only I could show you how extremely emotional music makes me. I mean, I'm sure people at church must think I'm all sorts of crazy because there have been countless amounts of times where I've just been sobbing during worship... like #crymeariver much? Before it was Oceans by Hillsong United. I listened to it at the perfect place in my life where the words I was singing along to perfect described my heart and emotions towards Jesus. I was feeling lost and scared - there was no way I would get out of the boat and walk towards Jesus on the water. But somehow, this song made me feel like it was possible. I would sit in my room, in the silence and repeat over and over:

 "Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders. Let me walk upon the waters, wherever You would call me. Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander. And my faith would be made stronger, in the presence of my Saviour"

I knew I needed to start trusting him fully. I was going to sink without him! There was nothing I wanted more than to know more of Christ and seek Him every waking minute of my life. It still makes me smile every time I think about it because worship is such a key for me. I close myself into my room and just sing my heart out, crying as much as I want and letting go! I feel so free when I worship. 

Recently though, another song has been tugging at my heart strings. Now, let's get one thing straight - Kari Jobe is the (wo)man! I just love how she worships, it's like the definition of free! A month ago I first laid ears on her newest song Forever and let me tell you, I cried for hours. It was like the goosebumps that wouldn't go away.  Before I go on, watch her live performance of it!

Amazing right? The past few weeks I haven't been able to stop thinking about one thing: I need to choose Jesus everyday in the same way He chose me that day on the cross forevermore! It's a truth that literally doesn't let me go to bed sometimes. I am so loved that He gave it all for me. He knew I would fail Him but He chose not to fail me! This song proclaims that the sacrifice on the cross is something for us to thank God for each and every day. 

"His perfect love cannot be overcome. Now death where is your sting? Our resurrected King has rendered you defeated!"

Ahhh I mean, come on!!! Like I wrote on Friday's post, no lie of the enemy is worth listening to because Christ made you worthy of His perfect love! Christ has defeated all fear, shame, doubt, self loathing and negativity. Don't you settle for those lies because you were made for more. This is something that should fill you with joy - I know it does for me!

Oh and that spoken word was mind blowing! All I can say is #TRUTH. "My words point to The Word and The Word has a name! Hope has a name, Joy has a name, Peace has a name, Love has a name, and that name is Jesus Christ!" I'm wrecked as I write this ha! My God is full of beauty and wonder and POWER and for that, He deserves all honour and praise!
