'I Give Up' Laura Story Official Lyric Video - Christian Music Videos

Laura Story shares her new song ‘I Give Up’ in this lyric video where she’s playing piano in front of some beautiful stained-glass windows. The lyrics of the song are so encouraging and remind us of God’s deep love for us. “I belong I belong To the maker of earth and seas Who’s as rich as a King Yet so gentle and kind towards me I am not cared for by a servant hired But a Shepherd who would leave the ninety-nine So when I give up I gain When I let go of having my own way When I learn to see my surrender as a brand new start To know the fullness of my Father's heart” Usually, we are told to never give up, but Laura Story has recently learned to do the complete opposite. And her new song reminds us to not rest in the world’s security, but to put our faith in God. We are not the ones in control; our good Heavenly Father is. When Laura was pregnant with her fourth child, she learned that he would be born with a cleft lip. It was a startling reminder to her that she was not in control of her pregnancy, the wellness of her child, or anything. This experience inspired her to write the song ‘I Give Up.’ The truth in her song reflects that we are His, and that is enough. Sometimes we think we can do things all on our own, but really, we can only find true peace when we let go of control and leave it in God’s hands. In a devotional centered around the topic of surrender, Laura Story shares about the day her son was born. “On March 20, 2018, our family welcomed Timothy William into the world, and he had the biggest and most beautiful cleft lip smile we had ever seen. And we were immediately in love! Even post-surgery, his smile brings tears to my eyes, and not just because my heart is so full of love for him. His smile always reminds me that I don’t have to be in control of everything, and I don’t have to always know how it’s all going to turn out. I don’t have to know, because I know the One who does, and I will continue, each day, to put my faith in Him. And day by day, I will learn to give up.” May we all trust the Lord with each part of our lives and experience the true freedom when we surrender to Him.
