For the few who do not know, I'm more picky about worship music than I'd like to be. It makes it difficult for me to find music to worship the Lord to.
So even if I only find a few songs on a record I really like, it's a big deal to me. When I first heard Kari Jobe's sophomore album, Where I Find You, only a song or two seemed to strike a chord with me. It wasn't until watching her lead thousands in worship in person at Winter Jam that her music clicked more with me. It's songs like "Steady My Heart" and "Find You On My Knees" that really hit home with me on a personal level. While I must admit that Where I Find You isn't my ideal go-to worship album as a complete collection of songs, several of the songs -- especially those near the beginning of the record -- really stand out. Jobe's honesty and transparency is evident and her passion was truly tangible upon seeing her live performance--and that comes through in her music.
If you're picky like me about worship music, I can't guarantee Where I Find You will be up your alley; a great deal of it sticks pretty close to what's familiar to the genre on a stylistic level. But if you're okay with something a little more in the middle, Kari's latest is certainly worth a spin -- especially "Steady My Heart," "We Are," "One Desire" and "Find You On My Knees."
