Just Be Held by God

Sitting here this morning listening to Casting Crowns sing “Just Be Held” and it really spoke to my heart. If you have children, you know there are times when they fight being held – when they are tired, mad, or frustrated. I wonder if God wants to come and hold us in these times and we are much like a child with their legs and arms all flapping and squirming, trying to get down. I can see Him patting our back and saying, “Shhh. I have this all under control. I know you don’t understand, but trust in Me.”

But we still fight and we still try to handle it on our own. We fight against what we think we “should” have versus what God’s will is for our lives. I know I get irritated when I try to tell my children how to do something and they do something completely different, which ends in failure. Yet He still comes time and time again – trying to pick us up and hold us. He wants to comfort our fears, our confusions, and our frustrations, but we push Him away.

So today, my friend, I want you to be open to Jesus. Let Him hold you in your times of frustration and insecurity. He knows the future and He knows what you need – even if you think you need something completely different. Let Him soothe your soul and give it rest, for only He can truly and completely give you the peace you are constantly seeking.

Today, spend 10 minutes just being. Just sitting or laying in His presence. Let Him sweep over you and give you a refreshing. He has been waiting for you.

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 you’re on your knees and answers seem so far away
You’re not alone, stop holding on and just be held
Your world’s not falling apart, it’s falling into place
I’m on the throne, stop holding on and just be held
Just be held, just be held

If your eyes are on the storm
You’ll wonder if I love you still
But if your eyes are on the cross
You’ll know I always have and I always will

And not a tear is wasted
In time, you’ll understand
I’m painting beauty with the ashes
Your life is in My hands

Lift your hands, lift your eyes
In the storm is where you’ll find Me
And where you are, I’ll hold your heart
I’ll hold your heart
Come to Me, find your rest
In the arms of the God who won’t let go

So when you’re on your knees and answers seem so far away
You’re not alone, stop holding on and just be held
Your world’s not falling apart, it’s falling into place
I’m on the throne, stop holding on and just be held
(Stop holding on and just be held)
Just be held, just be held
Just be held, just be held
