This week we have even more free music from Sara Groves! If you liked her free acoustic EP last week, then be sure to get this week’s song “Open My Hands.” It’s actually the next single from her album “Invisible Empires” and my personal favorite track on the record 😉 Check out her video interview below to see the story and meaning behind the song, and scroll down to get it for free!
I had a few co-writes on this last record with Jill Phillips, Andy Gullihorn, and on a song called “Open My Hands” with Ally Rogers who is a great songwriter in Nashville. We were talking about the verse that says “He withholds no good thing from us,” and the puzzlement of that, when you know people in your life that are having difficult times. And she shared with me this devotion by Charles Spurgeon:
“In Psalm 84:11 we read, ‘No good thing does he withhold from those who walk uprightly.”’Sir Richard Baker comments, ‘But how is this true when God oftentimes withholds riches, honor, and health of body from men? Though they walk ever so uprightly.’ We may therefore know that honors and riches and bodily strength are none of God’s good things. And the good things of God are chiefly peace of conscience, joy in the Holy Spirit, for wishing of God’s presence, and envisioning his face. These good things God never withholds from the godly.”
I have found this to be true in my own life that even though I might be struggling in other ways, God doesn’t withhold His good things from me. -Sara Groves
