Contemporary Christian singer-songwriter Laura Kaczor is kicking off the new year with the release of “Greater,” the latest radio single from her fourth studio album, Restore Me (LifeThirst Music) — produced by Dove Award-winning Producer of the Year, Ian Eskelin (All-Star United, Francesca Battistelli, Kutless). The message of the song is resonating with stations, landing an impressive 37 adds in the first few weeks, receiving airplay from coast to coast as well as radio stations in Canada, Ireland, Scotland, Australia and the Netherlands.
“‘Greater' was written as a prayer to the Lord asking Him to ‘become greater' in me,” says Kaczor, who is also the songwriter. "As we surrender our lives to the Lord Jesus Christ, our prayer is the same as John the Baptist in John 3:30, 'He must increase and I must decrease.' The more our spirits are yielded to Him, He will do what we cannot do ourselves. Jesus will live in us as we surrender every area of our lives."
Every dream, I lay it down
Until your will alone is all that's found
Take my life, take all of me
Until more of You is what I seek
"I also want to reflect on Proverbs 18:21,” says Kaczor. "'Death and life are in the power of our tongue.’"
When I speak, be in every word
And may my life reveal you to the world
Let your praise be always on my lips
Jesus Savior become greater
"This is not just on Sunday, it is every day and in every word, and yes, even on social media and in the hidden times when we speak to people,” says Kaczor. "We can speak life or death by our words. Our only hope is, 'Christ in me, the hope of glory' (Col. 1:27). Only when people see Him in us will they listen to our words about Him. May we all be convicted that the world is watching and that our witness depends upon our daily acts of love and kindness and serving others and every word that we speak."
Restore Me is a deeply personal album, birthed in trials, fears and struggles, but full of hope, faith and trust found in the unfailing, unconditional love of a Savior that restores us.
Restore Me is available now at iTunes and wherever Christian music is sold.
