Disclosure: I was sent this wonderful CD for review purposes and one is being provided for one lucky reader.
“The Garden” CD
I couldn’t wait to hear Kari Jobe’s Newest CD “The Garden” I had previously heard some of her songs (I am Not Alone) and loved them so I knew this wouldn’t be any different. Her voice is soft but it reaches into your soul and speaks to you on so many different levels. I’ve been a bit lost lately so having this on while reading the bible has really seemed to put my spirit at ease. Don’t ask me what it is but it just helps me clear my mind.
About Kari Jobe:
“Grammy nominated Kari Jobe is the premiere female worship leader in Christian music. Coming off her last live album, Majestic, which featured the worship anthem “Forever” and radio hit “I Am Not Alone,” Kari Jobe has returned to the studio to record her new album, The Garden, full of brand new worship anthems for the church and for personal reflection. Finding inspiration from life’s joys and hardships, Kari leans into the firm foundation of Christ through it all.”
Songs from “The Garden” that’ll Reach Your Soul
On the CD there are 14 individual songs that just fit perfectly. It doesn’t matter your mood or the season of life you are in, each one can strike a cord in a different way. For me it was The Garden. To me the words were just reaching through vines inside me and tearing apart all the weeds that have been building up. The words were definitely needed for me, even if she didn’t specifically write it to me, it did feel like it. I needed to see that deep inside I am still there and that God is just waiting around the corner.
Heal Our Souls, Hear Our Prayers
“Heal Our Land” was the next song that would reach my heart. So many of us are going through something and if we aren’t currently we know someone that is. Many of us lose faith and others simply do not know that there is hope. I recently came into contact with someone that didn’t believe she could be loved by God because things in her past. I remember all too well how that felt. I was simply a little girl that was being told by everyone I was a horrible child and that after putting my own mother behind bars that no one would love me and was even asked how I could still go on living. Let me tell you, as the words in this song go “Lord will you hear our cry,” because so many people need to know there is hope and that you really are there. “That every heart will know” that no matter what is going on you are there and you DO love all of them.
