FaItH SoNgS For His Glory Hop - Sept. 14th

Hello Friends!

Welcome to my blog! and I am very excited to bring you another faith series called Faith Songs for His Glory that I will be doing on Wednesdays...every two weeks my designers will share their testimony and one of their favorite faith songs and why they love to worship God with that song!...I love music and I know a lot of us love to play music in our homes...I think it gives our hearts and soul peace. I have several favorites that I will be sharing with you through out the series as well as my guest designers.

Today I wanted to do a kick-off of the series to get everyone started quickly since we tend to get busy...but we must always take time to Praise God and give him love and glory that he so deserves! :) Thanks for joining us.

I will be giving a prize of Faith Stickers today since it was a last minute decision. Make sure you comment and give the love to all and we will have a winner for this hop by random.org. God Bless!

Here is a list of my designers in the hop in case you get lost and well I don't want that happening...hehe...

My song I picked for today is "The More I Seek You" that Kari Jobe sings...she is one of my favorite artists. This song touched me when I first heard my friend Belinda sing it for us at a function (she has an awesome voice!) and I asked her where did you get that song and she told me...so I got the words and then look up Kari Jobe...wow!!! :) I highly recommend her ...she has her own website. I couldn't post the video like I wanted but you can check it out all the same.

It touched a chord in me because I think we all search for God but we really can find him in everything...Nature, a child's laughter or eyes, when someone smiles at you, kindness of a friend. There is so much of God that we have to seek him and seek him with all of our heart, mind and soul. And when we do find him ....we want to sit at his feet....I know he puts me in awe...everyday there is a blessing whether big or small...when things are bad I still praise him because we are to be thankful in all circumstances even when we don't understand. But one thing is certain...He loves us! and we need to worship Him for He is our EVERYTHING! I cant anything more exciting than being in his company! :)

Here is my LO and take on the song....
I used one of my pics that I took from when I used to live in another place where I rented a house. The first year we lived there in the fall the front yard was just gorgeous...I went across the street near the city resevoir and took the pic. I still love this picture...it reminds me of God's beauty! It is my favorite season...amazing the color of the leaves and all...

I used fake leaves and inked the card stock that I printed in green off my computer and used brads to hold them on the page and then embellish. Pretty simple.


Here is the song:

The more I seek you,
The more I find you.
The more I find you, the more I love you

I wanna sit at your feet
Drink from the cup in your hand,
Lay back against you and breath, feel your heart beat
This love is so deep it, it’s more than I can stand.
I melt in your peace, it’s overwhelming.

The more I seek you,
The more I find you.
The more I find you, the more I love you


Your next stop is Susan.
Thanks for stopping by and have fun singing along in the hop and have fun hopping... :)

In His Love,
Be Inspired,
Kari

Thank you for an uplifting song in these days when a lot of people see no hope. I find peace in my Lord to get through many hard times and I have had many small miracles in my life. Praying for one more next week when we get hubs biopsy results. Love your lo! I,too, always look at the beauty in nature for inspiration.

Brenda said...

Kari, thanks for reiterating that just because we don't know a reason for "it", we should still praise HIM for all he's done. It's been a very stressful couple of weeks for me and you just put it into perspective again for me. Love the song and that picture on your LO is beautiful.
I'm so blessed to be joining you in this hop. Thank you.
Hugs
Brenda
I would be honored if you came to see my blog here
