The Story Behind Empty Hands
In March 2018, Sydney traveled to Texas and shared the vision of Be The Change Youth Initiative with kids in the Lone Star State. One evening, she attended The Village Church in Flower Mound, Texas and met worship pastor Grant McCurdy. Sydney explained the ministry of Be The Change Youth Initiative to Grant and asked if he had any interest in working on a project with her. To her surprise, he said, "Yes!" Three days later, they sat down for a couple of hours and Empty Hands was brought to life.
Empty Hands is a song about trusting God no matter the circumstances in our lives. Sydney's favorite line from the song, "So even in my doubt, I will seek Your face. Even in my longing, I'll trust what You say. Even in abundance I will praise Your name." And keeping in the spirit of The Music Behind the Movement, proceeds from the sale of Empty Hands will support a missionary family working in North Africa. More details to come when the song is officially released Fall 2018.
