Sunday's Song: Healer

 Today I am joining Sarah...On Sundays, she posts songs that speak to her.  I love music.  I can not stress enough how much music has played a vital role in my spiritual life.  Sometimes my devotional time is me just belting it out, or crying like a baby while trying to sing, or just mouthing the words because my vocal chords can not make a sound.  I consider all of those forms of worship.  I can't wait until we all get to Heaven and can sing, dance, and praise God all while sitting at His feet. 

The song I am posting is from Kari Jobe, and it's called "Healer."  I won this CD a couple months back from a giveaway that Veronica was doing.  Once I got the CD, I instantly fell in love with it.  I hadn't listened to it for about a month or so until last week.  Then one day on my way to work I put it in and this song came on.  A month ago I really liked the song, totally believed the words she sings in it, but now it takes on a whole new meaning for me.  I was of course crying while singing the words "I believe you're my healer" and "I believe you are all I need."  This miscarriage has totally wrecked Eric and I in a whole new way that I never knew existed.  The only way we are going to get through it is with the help, mercy, and love that God gives us. 

"...nothing is impossible for you, you hold my world in your hands, nothing is impossible for you, you hold my world in your hands, and I believe you're my healer, Lord I believe you are all I need..."

I feel the same exact way about music. Music is what opened up the door for me to worship and really get to know the Lord. It's my favorite way to worship and I look so forward to that in Heaven!!

This song was one of the main ones that has helped me heal. I bought the CD after hearing over and over how great it was from Veronica (LOL!) and listened to it every day. That was at a time when I would get physically ill almost every time I was in the car, so I started singing the part "I trust in You" and "I believe You're my healer" and I started to internalize and believe those words. It really did change my life!

It is so true....nothing we are going through is impossible for Him! I know He will be with you every step of the way, healing you with His love and comfort.

I love this link up and may have to check out Sarah's blog.

I have been thinking about you a lot and I am so glad that you finally got to listening to the CD. :) Just like you did with your giveaway, I prayed that whoever won would be blessed by it and I would pick just the right person.

I know I was borderline obsessive about Kari's music, but I'm telling you...her music just speaks to my soul! I also LOVE the last song on the CD, You are for me. I can literally feel God's presence every single time I hear that song.

Well, I just want you to know that I'm still praying and even if you don't talk a lot about how you're feeling, I know it will be a process to get through this time. I love you and you will continue to be in my prayers! :)

I have a CD that really helps me out when I am having those days. I love music and I feel that it really does help. What a beautiful song. Kari's voice is amazing and she is truly blessed with her talents.

diddo....I feel the same way about music!! and I LOVE this song too....back in Bama Kari Jobe came to our church for a night of worship and she sang this song, but she also played a video of a family she was close with that had a baby girl with Cancer and how they would sing this song everyday, and sing it to the baby and after many months the baby was healed....oh my goodness what a moving song & a moving story....of course I cried thru the whole video, even my Eric got teary-eyed!

I love worship time at church. Music just speaks to my heart and heals me in so many ways. I can just feel the spirit during those times. I wish you could have been a the Lead Now conference we went to in Nov. in Dallas...she was there and sang this song live. was a room filled with the spirit. Thanks for sharing this song.

I love music too. Songs can capture how I am feeling and make it beautiful. Speaking of beautiful that is a beautiful song! God is the greatest Healer and He has done so much healing in my life. I'm still thinking often of you and Eric and I always wonder how you guys are doing.

I love that song! However, I've never heard this "version" before. We sing the Hillsong United all the time.

I love me some Hillsong! I actually believe they are the ones who first released Healer. There was actually a little bit of controversy involved in it, but it still such a good song!

When I was in your situation, this was my song:
