Laura story take it all
I Give Up: The Secret Joy of a Surrendered Life by Laura StoryMost of us long to be in control—of our schedule, our relationships, and our future.
Newlywed Laura Story thought she had control over the great life ahead of her. After all, she followed Jesus and had a promising new job as a worship leader. Why would God not want to fulfill her dreams?
But when Laura and her husband, Martin, faced a brain tumor, infertility, and a son’s birth defect, she realized she’d been looking for a happiness that comes from circumstances, rather than a deeper joy that comes from God. Again and again, Laura had to surrender her vision for her life so she could embrace God’s vision. And again and again she learned that even in the midst of shattered dreams, God’s plan brought greater joy than she could have imagined.
Now the Grammy Award–winning singer-songwriter known for such hits as “Blessings,” “Indescribable,” and “Mighty to Save” shares her powerful story of finding blessing in her deepest pain. In, I Give Up, Laura explores:
How to delight in God’s gifts no matter your circumstances.
Why waiting on God is a daily decision, not a step-by-step process.
The strength we find from meditating on God’s Word.
Why surrendering to God leads to reconciliation with others.
How the things we consider to be losses are ways for God to display his glory.
As Laura writes, she no longer wants to be in control of her life. She wants to be rooted in the God who is in control. I Give Up will help you Discover a deeper life of worship, a fuller life of joy, and a freer life of true surrender as you open your hands to God. And give up.
The sweetest sound, the highest praise Is the letting go of this life You gave Our greatest prayer, an act of faith Is an open hand; Lord have Your way. Take it all - every hope, every dream, every plan Take it all - every weight, all the shame and brokenness Jesus, I surrender all - every victory and loss Take it all, take it all 'till all I have is open hands. A clenching fist, a life of fear A burden held, has no place here Cause You call me now to cast it all On the shoulders of the one who's strong. Take it all - every hope, every dream, every plan Take it all - every weight, all the shame and brokenness Jesus, I surrender all - every victory and loss Take it all, take it all 'till all I have is open hands All I have is open hands. I'm not afraid of what I lose; my greatest joy is finding You [x2] Take it all, take it all [x2]. I surrender All I have is open hands.
