We listen to music every day, we all have our favorite songs and listen to them over and over. It is always nice to have a new CD to add to our collection. Our newest CD is Open Hands from Laura Story. Our local radio station plays Blessings by Laura Story a lot, so she isn't a new artist to my family.
This new album is about learning to live with open hands, constantly saying "Lord, my life is Yours. Do what you will." The songs on Open Hands are a lifeline that someone needs to hear when they are having a hard time, and Laura hopes God will speak through her music to offer hope.
Laura included some well-known songwriters on this album including Matt Redman, Matt Maher, Mia Fieldes, Hank Bently, Sarah Hart, and Seth Mosley to name a few. As Laura was writing both by herself and with the others she began to see a thread of surrender emerge. The theme for Open Hands was not chosen first it presented itself after the lyrics were written. Laura says sometimes the theme comes out of what is written not only in the music but in her life.
