I am all that He says that I am

So last night was truly an awe-inspiring night for me.  Not only did I get to go worship live with Kari Jobe, but I got to meet her and get her autograph too.  Anyone that truly knows me, knows that I have been waiting for that moment for the past 5 years.  Now, Kari is everything that I thought she would be, but the real reason I wanted to meet her was because of what her music and lyrics have done for my life.  If you have read any of my past blogs, you will have read about her.  Back in 2006, about a year after I moved to South Carolina, I was on shaking ground.  I had a pretty good job, but that's about it.  The girl I moved to SC with had already went back to Indiana and my cousin Jeri was living with me at the time.  I really didn't know in which way my life was headed.  I was on Myspace one night listening to different bands when I came across Kari Jobe's music page.  The very first song that I listened to of hers, "The More I Seek You" dropped me to my knees.  I was desperate for God.  This song seemed to literally come from Him beckoning me back into a relationship with Him.  From that point on, I listened to all of Kari's songs that she had out at the time.  She was a worship leader in a church in Texas.  She wasn't well-known and definitely did not have the success that she does now.  But I would sit at work at TRIPS and open up her webpage and just listen to her music all day long.  It brought me peace and comfort.  After a couple of years, she finally came out with an actual EP in February 2009.  From then on, she started to become a littler more mainstream and famous.  I am sooo excited that everyone can experience what I experienced when I first started listening to her music.  Her voice, music, lyrics, and worship style will truly stir you, they will move you.

It's almost surreal that this happened at the start of one of the most important weekends in my life.  Gregg is moving up to Columbia.  He will be starting with Columbia Fire Deparment on Monday doing 7 weeks of advanced training.  I'm so excited to see how much my life will change with him!  I can't wait. How often does God give us the desires of our hearts?  I know that for me, not only does He give me the desires of my hearts, but always goes above and beyond.  So much more than I could ever imagine.  I'm so thankful for a Creator and Savior who thinks of me and how much I mean to him.

Kari sang this song last night that went:

"I am all that He says that I am
Chains are broken
Scales are on the floor
Truth is spoken
I'm no orphan anymore..."

I don't know who actually sings this song or if it will be on Kari's new cd.  Ive searched the internet and I can't figure it out.  I'm praying its a brand new one from Kari and her band.  It's absolutely beautiful and breathtaking.

Here is the first song I ever heard her sing that has broken me to pieces...
