You Are for Me by Kari Jobe

This song really spoke to me when I first heard it. In times of weakness and great sadness, I remind myself of God's promise that tells me whatever I am going through He is for me because He planned to prosper me and give me hope and a future. His plans are perfect and pleasing and I ought to trust that.

The chorus says:
I know that You are for me
I know that You are for me
I know that You will never forsake me in my weakness
I know that You have come down
Even if to write upon my heart
To remind me who You are

So amidst despair and feelings of emptiness, I remind myself who He is. He has defeated death and conquered the world. He gave His own life for me even when I am unworthy, even if I've constantly rejected His love; just so I can live in freedom from my own shamefulness. I love because He loved me first.

So to my bestfriend, if you ever get to read this, I dedicate this post to you. Run into His arms. His love does not run dry; His touch restores life. And He is for you, as He is for me. I love you with the love of Christ.


  1. Great song. Thanks for posting.

  2. Cool lyrics. Very sincere. :)

  3. aww, you're such a sweet friend. ;3
    a nice debut song! i didn't know this artist so thanks for sharing, I wish I could play it by ear... maybe the sheet will come out some other time. *downloads song*

    yes, you're right... the real world stinks in a way but that's how it is. whatever your business plans are, i hope they turn out well. which reminds me... have you started already?

  4. I think there's a sheet available somewhere. I might have it. And I can give it to you. Lemme just find it. Kari Jobe is a Christian/Gospel artist. She has been a worship leader for quite some time and has had different albums with her church. But it is the first time she made a video. I'm glad you liked it.

  5. That is awesome. Oh, hi by the way. First time at your blog. That was a cmoforting post. Good stuff. that's kind of where I am right now, in need of reminders like this and stuff. To keeping serarching for HIm and not giving up in frustration. But I know if I can just hold on and do my part, He will bless me with so much. Can't wait to see what that's like considering the things I've recieved being disobedient. Uh-mazing. Ha. Haha.
