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 worlds not falling apart, its 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
Youll 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
This song (by Casting Crowns) just blesses my heart every single time I hear it. I love listening to radio stations like 106.9 The Light and K Love 94.1 because songs like this are so encouraging and uplifting. It’s amazing, really, how just hearing words like this can sometimes turn your whole day around.
I love the reminder in this song of Psalm 46:10, “Be still and know that I am God.” It’s so easy to take our eyes off of Jesus, to focus more on whatever problem we’re facing rather than our Father who loves us and has a perfect plan for us, but when we focus on Him, it’s so much easier. He has our lives in His hand, and He will always make beauty from the ashes.
Be encouraged today, my friends!
