Funny, because I attempted to post this before and the post was deleted. And the message I got from that was exactly what has happened in the first half of my year. Stuff has come undone only to allow God to do it the way that He saw it was suppose to happen. Some days were questioned with wondering what’s coming next. Like seriously wondering if Locust were on their way.
Not out of fear, but wondering where God was taking me and where did I ‘fit’.
At times, more often than not, I wondered was I alone. NO, truth is I asked God WHY was I in it alone.
The song Be Held by Casting Crowns brought healing to the empty places in my life and started helping me understand why it was hurting so bad. It helped me to begin to see things through unshattered glass and started preparing me for a journey I had no idea was ahead of me.
Casting Crowns (Be Held)
Hold it all together
Everybody needs you strong
But life hits you out of nowhere
And barely leaves you holding on
And when you’re tired of fighting
Chained by your control
There’s freedom in surrender
Lay it down and let it go
So when youre on your knees and answers seem so far away
Youre not alone, stop holding on and just be held
Your worlds not falling apart, its falling into place
Im on the throne, stop holding on and just be held
Just be held, just be held
If your eyes are on the storm
Youll wonder if I love you still
But if your eyes are on the cross
Youll know I always have and I always will
And not a tear is wasted
In time, youll understand
Im painting beauty with the ashes
Your life is in My hands
