Kari Jobe “The Garden (Deluxe Edition)” CD Review and Giveaway

They say music can be soothing for the soul, and I couldn't agree more. My family and I always have music playing in our home. We listen to a variety of different genres, but anything that glorifies the Lord is always number one on the playlist. I've recently been getting a sneak peek at Kari Jobe's newest CD, The Garden. As with her previous album releases, Kari offers an amazing collection of anointed worship songs that will lift your spirit.

Grammy nominated Kari Jobe is the premiere female worship leader in Christian music. Coming off her last live album, Majestic, which featured the worship anthem “Forever” and radio hit “I Am Not Alone," Kari Jobe has returned to the studio to record her new album, The Garden, full of brand new worship anthems for the church and for personal reflection. Finding inspiration from life’s joys and hardships, Kari leans into the firm foundation of Christ through it all.

Amidst a terrible tragedy in her family, Jobe was inspired to create The Garden as a way to heal and also remind others that God is always at work in our lives.

It’s said for everything there is a season. Winter. Spring. Summer. Fall. One by one, we experience these seasons throughout our lives. Our souls grow dark and weary in the thick of winter, and just when we think we can’t endure another cold night, we recognize the first signs of spring. Slow and unexpected, welcome shades of green break through the frozen ground. Sometimes our Creator uses His own creation to remind us that even amidst winter’s chill He is always at work. For it’s in the unseen where life’s most beautiful moments take shape. Worship leader Kari Jobe knows this to be true in her own life, and on her fourth album, The Garden (Capitol CMG), she invites listeners to drink of the wellspring of hope she’s found in the midst of unimaginable tragedy...In the time leading up to The Garden, Jobe has experienced both indescribable joy and unimaginable pain. Life and death, side by side. Yet, through it all, she’s found God to be inextricably faithful because she’s learned to trust the Gardner and the beautiful, unseen ways He tends to our hearts.

He is all my soul will prize. Regardless of the joy or trial. When agonizing questions rise. In Jesus all my hope abides. -The Cause of Christ, Kari Jobe

As soon as I began playing The Garden, I could feel the presence of God in my heart–the music is just that spirit filled. I do have a few favorite songs and these include Let Your Glory Fall, Lover of My Soul, The Cause of Christ, and Here as in Heaven. Sometimes you feel connected to certain songs more than others, and these four were the ones that I found myself playing over and over again. Of course, each and every song on this entire CD is beautiful and you could definitely feel the anointing. As I listen, I'm reminded of the Lord's amazing grace and love for his children.

The Garden officially releases today (February 3, 2017) and is available on both iTunes and Amazon.
