You Are For Me

If you are like me, you most likely go through seasons where a specific song speaks deeply to you.  You probably listen to that song over and over and over.  Possibly, even the people closest to you are tired of you playing that same song over and over...
Currently, my "song of the season" is a beautiful song by Kari Jobe called You Are For Me.  This song speaks about WHO God is and that He is FOR US.  This is such a beautiful and profound truth.  God is FOR US!  HE is FOR YOU!

When there are challenges in life, and it seems that there is much against us, it is important to remember the TRUTH and WHO God is.  As we look to Him and focus on Him, He reminds us of who we are (His beloved children) and that He is FOR US.  This song proclaims these vital truths...  It is always so comforting and affirming to remember that the Lord is FOR US. He sees us and loves us and will never forsake us in our weaknesses.

I have been singing this song over me (encouraging myself in the Lord) and over the children, specifically the girls, living in the slum.  I have been praying for a revelation of who God is over the hearts of the girls.  I am praying that they will know there is a loving God who is FOR them.
  Here there are many things that seem to be against lives, attacking the hearts of the girls living in the community - poverty, broken families, poor education system, lack of hope for the future, depression, low self-esteem, and so many more things... Through this song I have been proclaiming the TRUTH of who the Father is and His amazing LOVE.

I hope you enjoy this song as much as I have been enjoying it and through it God speaks to your heart.

You Are For Me
by: Kari Jobe


So faithful. So constant.
So loving and so true.
So powerful in all You do.
You fill me. You see me.
You know my every move
and You love for me to sing to You.

I know that You are for me.
I know that You are for me.
I know that You will never,
forsake me in my weaknesses

I know that You have come now,
even if to write upon my heart.
To remind me who You are.

So patient, So gracious,
So merciful and true…
So wonderful in all You do.
You fill me. You see me.
You know my every move.
You love for me to sing to You

Lord, I know that You are for me
I know that You are for me
I know that You will never,
forsake me in my weaknesses

I know that You have come now,
even if to write upon my heart.
To remind me that
I know that You are for me.

    Eu conheci esta música há duas semanas e também tenho ouvido várias e várias vezes, posso dizer que é minha "song of the season" também! A letra é realmente muito profunda. Hoje pela manhã eu pensava em como seria cantar esta música no tempo de louvor de sexta-feira na Luzeiro, porque achei que parecia com você ou Kelly tocando para nos cantarmos juntos. Isso é muito especial, quando eu vi o tema do teu post, eu percebi que era desta conincidência que se tratava. É o mesmo Espírito que compartilhou a canção com quem a escreveu e com você aí em BH, comigo aqui em PVH e tantas outras pessoas...
    Abraço!
