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.
