My Thoughts:

I LOVE this CD. It is probably my favorite of Laura Story's albums. I absolutely love the lyrics to the songs, especially Open Hands, but really every song has a great message and is inspiring.

These are my top favorite songs...I could have probably listed almost all of the tracks as "favorites", so I just picked my top tracks to spotlight.

Open Hands. Title track and probably my favorite song on the album. I can see it being a favorite song of mine in general. The lyrics are inspiring and moving, I love the music, and the song features Mac Powell (from Third Day) and I love the differing voices throughout the song.

For the Love of My King. This song has amazing lyrics and the music is so catchy. I find myself singing along without even meaning to! One really great thing about this song is it infuses lyrics from the hymn My Jesus, I Love Thee into the song and does it so beautifully. I loved that!

Every Word You Breathe. What a beautiful song. "I will cling to every word You breathe."

Grace Abounds. Wow. The lyrics in this song are A++. "When it feels like hope cannot be found, grace abounds."

All in all, Open Hands is a phenomenal album and I most definitely recommend it. A great inspirational album that you can play on "repeat". ;)
