30 Day Gratitude Challenge: Day 21 –

Now that I’m back on track lets see what today’s blessings looks like.

The Challenge asks what SONG am I most grateful for?

Oh my goodness, music is such an integral part of my life I don’t know if there’s just one song I am most grateful for.

I suppose if I had to choose and based on the music I’ve listened to today, I would say the song I’m most grateful for today is:

Just Be Held by Casting Crowns

As a wife and mom, there are so many times I feel overwhelmed, not good enough. The lyrics of this song touches me in a way that reminds me I am never alone. I have a God who just wants to hold me. Whether I’m happy or sad, He is always there willing to hold me.

The tricky part is learning I don’t always need to have it all together, learning to just be held and know it’s okay if I’m a mess and scattered sometimes. There’s beauty in my ashes.

What Song are you most grateful for today

Lyrics

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
