Rory Noland paints a description of living an authentic Christian life that we absolutely adore. He says, "The Bible refers to authenticity as living a life of truth in our " innermost being" (Ps.51:6 NASB). In other words, we are who we say we are. We're living what we sing about. We're living what we write about. People won't listen to what we say until they have watched what we do and found consistency."
It is a joy to lay before you the offering of Kimber Rising. We offer it, because we are fully aware that this creative, musical, ministry endeavor is not about us but for Him. In lieu of a perceived idea of what we're about... here's the truth, straight from us. You will find that we are not a picture of perfection, but instead, hopefully, refreshingly relatable. We understand the grace of our Father because we need it daily. Our separate journeys marked with joy, heartache, laughter, loss, growth, and pain have prepared us for the task at hand; to point our fellow journeymen (and women) to the Author of our stories. Speaking of stories, this whole musical process has been a thrilling unexpected surprise for the three of us! Our music, mainly a flare of pop with a dash of soul, will be available shortly as we are currently working away in the studio. We can't wait to share it with you!
Psalms 119:74 says, "Those who fear You rejoice when they see me for they know I have put my hope in Your Word." Hope. We were told that's what Americans are lacking right now. There is an old hymn written by Edward Mote that reads, "My hope is built on nothing less Than Jesus' blood and righteousness. I dare not trust the sweetest frame, But wholly trust in Jesus' Name". All we can do is sit back and marvel at what an honor, privilege, and joy it is to sing and minister in His name and solely for His glory. Understand that we do not take this responsibility lightly, but realize that you are trusting us as you press play, sift through our blogs, and worship with us as we travel to you. We are left raw and exposed before you, friends, and are excited to grow with our listeners as we learn to lead by His Word, love by living His example, and inspire through His creativity.
