***********THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED*****************

Do any of you remember when I reviewed a few songs I had heard by Robert Pierre?  (If not, check out this post.)  Well, his new CD "I'm All In" just came out and I get to review it AND I have a copy to give away!!

First of all, I have to say that I love the title "I'm All In."  Robert says, "The Bible talks about how the eyes of the Lord are searching to and fro throughout the earth, searching for someone whose heart is wholly His, somone he can strongly support.  This CD is me saying, 'I'm all in.'"  I love seeing youth on fire for God and I love how the songs encourage that.  The songs are described as "a collection of songs that enthusiastically and energetically worship God while wrestling with what it means to be a Christian in a world full of difficulty and joy, anxiety and excitement."  Don't fear if you aren't "young" though--even though the artist is only 18, this CD is for all ages.

The song "Maker of the Stars" begins with these lyrics:  "You know my every thought*You know my every move*You know the motive behind all that I do*You know my deepest fear*You know when I shed a tear*And when I'm hurting You're always there*You are the maker of the stars*The light in the dark*Your Word will never fade*And You, You've known me from the start*You see inside my heart*You love me anyway*The heavens scream of the works*That are all of Your hand*From the mountain tops of every land*You spoke and life came to be*You opened my eyes to see*And when I call you You, You answer me"

I have to say that I like this new CD even better than I liked the older songs I heard (and I really liked those)  The music is still energetic, but a little more mellow and worshipful. 

I received the CD just before heading on a road trip with a bunch of high schoolers so I popped it in while we were driving.  Half of the kids were sleeping, but the ones that heard it liked it!  Now that I am back home the CD has been put on my ipod and I am playing it right now!

Hi Jen,
The stuff I listen to is soooo old. I'm up for trying someone new. I like songs that tell a story and have meaning to them. :)
