Where I Find You {Giveaway}

Congrats to random winner Elizabeth!

The last few days have been hard. Family birthdays and my anniversary tinged with deep sadness. I feel helpless, don’t you? I have wondered where to find God in the middle of such suffocating sorrow for our nation.  He seems quiet.

But do not doubt, He was there in that school, no law could keep him out. And He is with us:

In fear.

In joy.

In darkness.

Everywhere we go, everything we do, He is there.

During this Holy season, we are reminded that hope came down from Heaven to a lowly stable.

Grammy-nominated Kari Jobe is a worship leader and a beautiful young lady who loves God. Her new Christmas Edition of Where I Find You is amazing. I love “When Hope Came Down.”

Her song“‘We Are” is a song of commission for us as believers,” says Kari, “to be reminded of what we’ve been called to; and that is to impact people’s lives in everything we do.”

So, do that this Christmas season. People are watching, looking for hope.

Today I’m giving away an autographed copy of Kari’s “Where I Find You” CD, a red cloth-covered edition of the “A Christmas Carol” book, and a copy of the brand new Wow Hits 2013 CD that she is featured on.

I’m mediating on these words and this blessed hope.

Leave a comment if you’d like to win. This giveaway is only 24 hours and will close Wednesday.

    be reminded of what we’ve been called to; and that is to impact people’s lives in everything we do.” That’s is so good. :-) This has been a hard time, but light burns the brightest in the dark. We can’t help but pray for the families, and hold our boy a little tighter.

    My good friend wrote a post on the conflict of her emotions at this tragedy. I love how she worded it: “Thankfully, God does not require us to have only one emotion at a time. I am committed to using this tragedy not to feel guilty about celebrating with my own family, but to bring perspective to my celebrations. And while I celebrate the unspeakable joy of having my family with me around Christmas dinner, I will intentionally take some time to stop and reflect, pray for, and weep for those that are missing someone around their Christmas dinner table.” ( http://myhometableau.com/3-christmas-commitments-in-response-to-sandy-hook/ )

    Praying myself for these families. Thanks for this post and giveaway.

    Kari Jobe is definitely blessed in the worship music department.
    I adore her song “the More I seek YOU”. Fantastic.
    Thanks for sharing the HOPE we have when things don’t always make sense.

    Love Kari Jobe……

    Like you, I’m questioning events…but, as my pastor said on Sunday, “God doesn’t mind our questioning – just look at the Psalmists – God is there, listening, and will respond…”

    There are a lot of 3 minute songs that teach, inspire, convict and hit me over the head more than a 30 minute sermon.

    Thank you for your beautiful words. It is hard to express your feelings and emotions at a time like this. I am a Mom of a son who was murdered a few years ago, just after his birthday, Stories like this makes me so sick at heart. I wish so much I could be there and support the families going through the grief. Our son died in Nov.( his b/d was in Sept) It is very hard to lose a child.Thank you for your generous offer of a giveaway. I would appreciate some new music this Christmas. It would give me something nice to focus on.

    Andrea says

    Though the past few days have been sad, I have seen God working. One thing that has helped me is taking a friend’s advice and letting my kids teachers know how much I appreciate them and that I pray for them and the school.

    Melissa says

    I would love to win. My husband recently sent my best friend and I to see Kari Jobe in concert and it was the most worship-full concert that I’ve ever been to. Haven’t had the chance to get any of her cd’s yet. It’d be great to start with this one!
