Laura Story

Wednesday, July 15, 2009

One of my mentors sent me a link to see youtube video about a Christian singer, Laura Story. I learned that she was the one who wrote the song: "Indescribable", which was made popular by Chris Tomlin through his album: "Arriving." I fall in love in with her angelic voice & her song "Grace" below, which brought tears in my eyes. Thank you for your grace to me, O Lord!

My heart is so proud. My mind is so unfocused.
I see the things You do through me as great things I have done.
And now You gently break me, then lovingly You take me
And hold me as my Father and mold me as my Maker.

I ask You: "How many times will You pick me up,
When I keep on letting You down?
And each time I will fall short of Your glory,
How far will forgiveness abound?"

And You answer: "My child, I love you.
And as long as you're seeking My face,
You'll walk in the power of My daily sufficient grace."

At times I may grow weak and feel a bit discouraged,
Knowing that someone, somewhere could do a better job.
For who am I to serve You? I know I don't deserve You.
And that's the part that burns in my heart and keeps me hanging on.

As I walk with You, I'm learning what Your grace really means.
The price that I could never pay was paid at Calvary.
So, instead of trying to repay You, I'm learning to simply obey You
By giving up my life to You for all that You've given to me.
