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
Songwriters: John Mark Hall, Bernie Herms, Matthew West

I talk to people about life on a regular basis, and most times those conversations revolve around the times when life is not so great. Life gets overwhelming, it gets busy, it gets hard. And we find ourselves in a place where we may not feel as strong as we would like.
I have heard the verse, “Be still and know that I am God”(Psalm 46:10) used time and time again. But I have asked myself <and God>: “What are we are supposed to be doing while we are being still.” This song answers that question—we are supposed to just be held. We are supposed to let ourselves be wrapped in God’s love and find rest. We are supposed to remind ourselves that we don’t have to keep trying to hold on. Like the song says, He is on the throne holding our lives together, and He will hold us.
I urge you to take comfort in these words….
Your world’s not falling apart, it’s falling into place;
I’m on the throne, stop holding on and just be held….
Ladies, remember Who is holding you, remember Who sits on the throne.

Dear Heavenly Father, we cannot hold our world alone…life gets too much to handle at times, but it is never too much for You to handle. Thank You for holding us. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
