Sitting at my desk early this morning, I heard the chickens by my window. That would mean they were in the front yard, instead of the side. They had jumped the fence, looking for me because they had a need. I walked them back through the gate, gave them food and made a note to replenish their water. Isn’t that how life should be?
To be cared for. The only being I have found that consistently cares for me is God. There are no strings attached, no ultimatums, no scenarios, just seek Him and He’ll care for me. He provides my every need and loves me flaws and all.
I was driving home the other day, and Casting Crowns came on the radio. Driving down the road, I listened closely to this song entitled, Just Be Held. It made perfect sense to me. I had been where the song is describing, and I’m there again now. The song says, “Stop holding on and just be held.” That sounds simple, but it’s not easy.
The rest of the chorus says, “Your world’s not falling apart it’s falling into place. I’m on the throne, stop holding on and just be held.” I love that. Do you feel like your world is falling apart? I think it has to fall apart a little to fall back into place better.
We ask His forgiveness, forgive whoever disappointed us and then forgive ourselves. He never stopped loving us; we just need to forgive and move forward. That is the kind of love I seek. The kind that will encourage me to grow when I feel strong and when I’m not, I can just be held. The arms of God will never let you go.
