Bethel’s Kristene DiMarco Releases Short Film “I Needed a Supernatural God”
Written by Christi Given | December 12, 2017
Kristene DiMarco, a worshipper from Bethel Music, recently released an album called Where His Light Was. She made a short film about her album, the songs and theme behind it, and she also shares insight into her personal testimony.
DiMarco says you cannot experience God’s faithfulness without having been in a dark place. She shares about her experience living in San Francisco and how God took her on a journey and really built up her faith. She shares how she and some other people were able to be lights in a place that seemed hopeless. The short film expresses DiMarco’s honest exhibition in her own personal faith walk and describes her need for a real rescuer, not just a faith she has been told about since she was little. DiMarco was challenged with WHY she believes what she believes and was exposed to other people outside of her comfort zone who didn’t believe the same things she did. The short film is uplifting and informative, and challenges each believer, or those seeking truth, to do their own soul searching.

DiMarco was called to go to San Francisco with some people with The Call for about three weeks, which turned into three years. She shares about her journey of housing traveling musicians. Initially, she was open to the opportunity since it was such a short amount of time, but then it turned into much longer and she wasn’t fond of the location, but got used to it. DiMarco was able to witness to people from the homeless to those who were in music, but one question really promoted her to seek God for herself. One man asked her why Jesus is God, and that was the key question that she needed to be asked to fuel her quest for the reason Christ is the Savior and King of Kings. DiMarco said that “many people know God is real, they just don’t know His name.”
Wow, so powerful and so touching to hear her story, especially from someone who is such a leader in the Christian world. She was able to share the Gospel with those who felt cast out and shamed by the church. DiMarco struggled with how to deal with fear and unanswered questions. I love how real and raw she is with her story and that she chose God because He is the only option that can truly set us free.

PI Girls, do you have the new album from Kristene DiMarco? I would highly recommend downloading it or listening on YouTube. Some of my favorite songs are “I Am No Victim,” “Fear Not,” “Hope Is Alive” and “Your Love Stands Alone.”
