Music Monday: Just be Held

Hello there,

How are you doing? I am doing alright. I hope your Monday is going well. Mine is going alright.

Anyhoo, last week, my friend tried to hug me and I may or may not have squealed. I know that does not seem like a big deal but I do not really like to be held. I have a thing about personal space and as silly as it sounds, I do take it seriously. After the incident, we had a discussion on the importance of physical touch and how it is supposedly needed for human interaction. Side note: I still don’t get it.

According to my friend, I have issues with letting go. I don’t know how she figured that out. I think she’s “attacking” me because I did not let her hug me or maybe she was being a good friend.

Honestly, I am thankful that God holds us close despite our mood and personality swings. Despite everything going on, Our savior urges us to let go and let Him Hold us.

Here, read what Casting Crown has to say about being held by God.

Just Be Held – Casting Crown 

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

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
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

I don’t like to be held much, but I’d rather be held by God than by anyone.

How about you?
