In recent years, there has been a small surge of new artists who are helping to redefine the worship genre. These individuals have replaced the cliché of seven-eleven choruses and shallow Sunday School theology with a modern sound and heartfelt lyrics birthed from their personal journeys with the Lord.
Laura Kaczor is one such artist. Laura's musical fingerprint is adult contemporary meets worship, a style that meshes well for both genres. Her soothing voice is one of hope in the power of Christ and passion for His Kingdom.
Restore Me hits on many different aspects of worship by focusing on a handful of characteristics of God. "Once And For All" joyfully recites the Gospel story, praising Jesus for the sacrifice he made on the cross. "Only You" centers more on the creator side of God and some of the many Hebrew names that describe Him in Scripture. "We Don't Always Understand" gives praise and glory to a compassionate and all-knowing God, who always has a plan even when we can't see it.
In keeping with its title, Restore Me is an album that brings rest to a weary heart and calms a tired soul. After a long stressful day, sometimes the best medicine is to turn on some slow-paced music that reminds us that God still has us in the palm of his hand. Restore Me reminds us that whether we're experiencing untold blessings or are having trouble seeing God's ultimate plan through the fog of pain, He is worthy of praise through every circumstance.
