New video by Sandra McCracken for her song “Can’t Help Myself.” Watching the video was the first time I’d heard the song, and I love it. I’m in a season where the challenges ahead are too big for me to help myself. I need Someone a whole lot bigger. What a beautiful reminder in this song.

I need grace. How ’bout you?

This video showed up in my e-mail inbox today. I love Sara Groves’ music and think she’s super talented. I mean really, not just anyone can write a song about bioethics and science fiction and have it be catchy and thought-provoking. Here’s the video.

And here’s the story behind the song, which helps put it all into perspective.
