“God of Every Story” is Story’s third release following two very successful releases each of which has at least one signature career-defining song. Her debut “Great God Who Saves” gave us her self-penned “Indescribable” which has become a worship staple across the globe under hers and Chris Tomlin’s hands.
Then her sophomore record “Blessings” produced the title track which has struck the chords of numerous hearts that many have made this song a personal anthem. Thus, it was of no surprise when the single “Blessings” was locked into iTunes Christian song chart at number 1 for 28 consecutive weeks. Considering such a mammoth history of memorable hit songs, the stakes for a follow-up are high.
Nevertheless, “God of Every Story” doesn’t disappoint. Spotting all the symptoms of a classic-to-be is the lead single “I Can Just Be Me.” Featuring a popish Jim Brickman-esque piano, “I Can Just Be Me” is one of those tugged at your heart ballads that Story is patented for. “I Can Just Be Me” hits the nail on its head: the reason why we have often despaired in our chapters of hardships is because we try to be God. Rather than allowing God to be our Master Story teller we try to take His place. With her effable sensitivity, Story urges us in this song to just be ourselves rather than try to play God in the unfolding of God’s story.
