“Life is filled with things you don’t expect, but the Bible tells us to respond by trusting God and continuing to worship Him.” ~Laura Story
And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you. Psalm 9:10
The Grammy, Billboard and Dove Award–winning singer-songwriter Laura Story, known for such hits as “Blessings,” “Indescribable,” and “Mighty to Save,” thought she had her life and everything in it under control…until she and her husband, Martin, had to face a brain tumor, infertility, and a son’s birth defect head-on.
In her new book, I Give Up: The Secret Joy of a Surrendered Life, Laura shares her powerful story of finding blessing in her deepest pain by choosing to hand over the control she thought she had to God and instead pursue a life of surrender.
If you’ve ever felt all alone and yet you were in the middle of an auditorium of people, it was a weird sensation.
I found myself in a dry place in life and spiritually. I knew, because this wasn’t the first time, I needed to get with the Lord and Listen.
It had to start with looking a God’s creation, nature. Wow, how beautiful!
I then thought of my new grand baby. A masterpiece. Which lead me to think about God’s Son. Though Him, God did it all. Christ made a way for you and I, even when we didn’t think there was a way!
1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.
3 He will not let your foot slip— he who watches over you will not slumber.
“I love the smell of possibility in the morning.“ – Unknown
