I recently downloaded Casting Crowns new album Thrive. It’s awesome and there is one song that resonated with me primarily because of the name: Just Be Held. I listened to the song when I was having a really bad day and it literally brought me to tears. We all have those days where we just want God to pick us up and tell us it’s going to be okay and that’s exactly what he did for me. Sometimes I think we can get so caught up in the idea that we have to be in control of every aspect of our lives that we forget that God sees the bigger picture. I honestly find great comfort in knowing that He is the one who knows everything I will face in my life before I do. So my next question is why do I spend an enormous amount of time worrying about things that I can’t even control? Like I’ve said a thousand times before I know God’s plan for my life is a thousand times better than my own and I can’t wait to find out what it is! I have also learned throughout my life that it is so much easier to let Him handle your problems than to keep holding on to them. Sometimes we need to stop and just be held for awhile!!
