Forever: Kari Jobe

Hey guys,

I just wanted to jump on here real quick to share a song that has been on my heart for the past few weeks.  As a Christian, this weekend  I am observing Easter.  To me Easter is my absolute favorite holiday… yes even more than Christmas!  I just am totally enthralled with the fact that this man called Christ would sacrifice his life in such a brutal way.. for someone like me! Many will ( and have) argued with me saying that there wouldn’t be a savior to sacrifice if there wasn’t a Christmas. Which I agree with as well . But its just being privy to the fact he accepted the fate he was dealt, willing and humbly for someone like me.. It’s a humbling thought and I  am forever grateful!

Too often we see holidays that were created to observe and commemorate Christ have been overrun by commercialization. I pray that one day we will return these holidays to the sacredness they deserve. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the hustle and bustle and gift giving of Christmas and I am not opposed to dyeing Easter eggs and eating a Cadbury egg or two, but… if all those things were taken away, my heart would still give glory where glory is due!  Check out this song  ( and lyrics) Forever by Kari Jobe. She puts into song what Easter is truly about. Forever our God is alive!

Have a blessed day!

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

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
