Christian Gifts: Scripture Pictures

Have you ever had one of your favorite Christian songs perfectly match one of your favorite inspiring Bible verses? This happened to me just this week when I was listening to Casting Crowns sing, “Just Be Held” (written by Bernie Herms; Songs of Universal, Inc.) from their CD entitled Thrive. It goes like this:

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 worlds 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

 What??? Did I really just hear: “Your worlds not falling apart, it’s falling into place”…“Stop holding on and just be held”?? Is this song telling me to let go and let God? Although I think I have so much power in certain situations, whom am I fooling? But when I surrender my challenges to the Lord and step out of His way so that He can implement His divine purpose, it is only then that great things happen.

This song reminds me of one of my very favorite inspiring Bible versesExodus 14:14: The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.” Instead of holding on so tightly to what little control we think we have, may we allow ourselves to be wrapped in the arms of the Lord and experience the peace that passes all understanding. Like a child who snuggles in a soft, safe, and sturdy blanket, may we “cuddle” in the arms of “Daddy God” and trust that our Father will break every chain to give us deliverance.
