It is so funny, because i kept saying "kari jobe concert" and every time i would use the word "concert", it just felt wrong. I mean, she's a worship leader. Not an entertainer. She is there to lead you into the presence of God. At some point during worship, she kind of addressed this by encouraging people to press in to God, to seek Him, to really listen to the words & sing them to Jesus, and she said something along the lines of, "I mean, we can try our best to entertain you, but that will be NOTHING compared to what Jesus will do in your heart if you meet with Him tonight!" So very true.
I love Kari Jobe. She is an AMAZING passionate worship leader, and she is adorable. She is just a doll. So sweet. She is engaged & i love that God gave her a man who tours with her & also leads in worship! Awesome! His name is Cody & they get married a month from today! (I know this, because she said so on Facebook. Ha.)
Warren Barfield opened for her, and y'all. I LOVE his style of music and his voice, but also? He's HILARIOUS. Hilarious!
Here are pics from the "concert". :) I went with two of my friends from my infertility support group, Heather & Mary Claire. But i also ran into about 29504094 people i knew...including some of my bestest friends in the whole world! Ha! We had a wonderful wonderful time! Wish i could go again!!

At one point, Kari started talking about trusting God. She said we can trust Him. He is trustworthy. And then she started saying how if your "truster" is broken, that's not a very good place to be, for a believer. But that sometimes trials and situations can cause our truster to become broken. And i was like, "uh, yeah". That's me. My truster is broken. I have been so hurt by miscarriage & infertility that i have even gotten to a place where i do not know if i can trust the Lord. And she's right ... that is not a good place to be.
The truth is, though, I CAN trust Him. I may not feel like i can, but i can. He is a God i can trust. He is not a god that is going to let me down. He is faithful, and he has proven that to me time and time again. So right now, i am working on trusting Him again. I want to be somebody who believes God, and trusts Him no matter what trials i face.
