#MusicMonday: Forever (Live) by Kari Jobe #christian #love

Tears are streaming down my face.

What a crybaby I’ve become.

In my defense, I did watch the video in full screen and very loud.  And it’s just an incredibly powerful video.  I heard this song on Spotify on my way to church and decided it should be the next #MusicMonday.

This isn’t my first time watching this video.  And not my first time to cry either.music video kari jobe forever live

It’s as if, specifically with Christian music, I get this little glimpse of how much God loves me… and it is overwhelming.  And so beautiful.

I say glimpse because I have have logically reasoned in my mind that I must not know, most of the time, how much He loves me.

If I did, I would make different choices.  Say different things.  Have different thoughts. Right?

And then I watch a video like Forever by Kari Jobe and, for a brief moment, it all makes sense.

I don’t have to have all the answers.  All I have to do is glorify My Father in heaven.

Easier said than done, I know.  And the times that it is easier is when I can participate in a beautiful, powerful song of worship, like this one.  Music makes it easier for me to slip into undistracted praise and worship.

Because my purpose on earth is to glorify God.

And we are FEELING God’s love- amen?!  There is something so right about the passion of Kari, the band and the attendees in this song.  I want to be dancing right alongside them all.  And when God gives me a new body in heaven, I’ll ask for a singing voice like Kari’s too.  So lovely.

If you stick until the end of the vid, a guy comes out to perform slam poetry and it’s pretty exciting.  He reminds me of Andy Mineo and Lecrae – taking what is a “tough guy thing” and spinning it for the glory of God.  Great role models for young men.slam poetry christian music video

The whole video is like an emotional pep-rally for God and I dig it.

I don’t know how anyone could watch this whole thing and not be inspired and energized by this reminder of what is true.  He won!  He loves us!  And…

we get to be with Him… FOREVER!!!

Now THAT is what’s cool.

LYRICS:

“Forever”

The moon and stars they wept
The morning sun was dead
The Saviour of the world was fallen
His body on the cross
His blood poured out for us
The weight of every curse upon him

One final breath he gave
As heaven looked away
The son of God was laid in darkness
A battle in the grave
The war on death was waged
The power of hell forever broken

The ground began to shake
The stone was rolled away
his perfect love could not be overcome
Now death where is your sting?
Our resurrected King
Has rendered you defeated

Forever he is glorified
Forever he is lifted high
Forever he is risen
He is alive, He is alive!

The ground began to shake
The stone was rolled away
his perfect love could not be overcome
Now death where is your sting?
Our resurrected King
Has rendered you defeated

Forever he is glorified
Forever he is lifted high
Forever he is risen
He is alive, He is alive!

We sing hallelujah
We sing hallelujah
We sing hallelujah
The Lamb has overcome

Forever he is glorified
Forever he is lifted high
Forever he is risen
He is alive, He is alive!

You have overcome
You have overcome
You have overcome
You have overcome
