Dear Ria, here is my plea for this CD. :-)

I had never heard Kari Jobe until today. Here is my ironic (God!) story about Kari's music.

This afternoon, I rushed back from a busy day of class to go to an Elife meeting at my school (a gospel evangelism team I help lead here at NWC).

I got to the meeting and met with one of the other leaders of our group. After realizing the meeting had been canceled and we'd missed the memo, we began chatting. We talked about what God is doing in some of our ministries here (including one that reaches out to the poor and homeless in the cities). It was very exciting and neat to have the opportunity to talk about God things and truly refreshed my day. When I left to go to work, I couldn't help smile at the fact that God had given me a moment to think about him on a go go go 8-9 school day.

I immediately felt like worshipping, but only had a few minutes so I youtubed "Revelation Song" (one of my favorites).

It was at this point that I noticed your blog update and read about the CD giveaway. I looked back over to youtube and realized that the song I was listening to featured none other than miss Jobe.

Anyway, I just thought I'd share with you how this song has brought a joy to my busy day. Praise the Lord. (and Happy Birthday of course!)

I love Kari Jobe. She sings at the church that my brother and sister-in-law go to in Dallas! She has the most beautiful voice. I have heard her sing at church but I never knew she had a CD, how fun!!

Hope you have a great day tomorrow! Can't wait to hear about it. Happy Birthday!

KJ said...

I've never heard of Kari Jobe- I need to get to know her music immediately! Happy Early Birthday sweet girl! Wow- 21 is a BIG year! How fun! I pray the Lord fills your day with LOTS of blessings and brings to mind how much he LOVES you!! :)

The potty training is going ok. It's slow and a little stressful, and it's very hard to be patient. :) The class at PetCo, was helpful, we got lots of good ideas. Thanks for asking!

Yep, it is Gateway! Actually the church I grew up in in Amarillo, TX (Trinity Fellowship) was part of the planting of Gateway, so when my brother and sis-in-law moved down there, they went to that church. They loved it, and my family all loves to visit it when we are there. The pastor Robert Morris is great too!!

Hi Ria! I am so excited to find your blog. Thank you for stopping by my place over at My Alabaster Jar.

Kari Jobe? She is one of my favorites. It goes without saying that I love Revelation Song. But you know what speaks to me even more? "The more I seek you, the more I find you." If you don't know that song, she sings it with Klaus and it is raw, basic, intimate, honest emotion about the One who dies for us. That is why I love Kari Jobe.

PS- I am following you now!


Laura said...
