Just Be Held 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

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

    Ive been lost for such a long time… I’m a mother of 4 beautiful children.. two years ago our life was shaken by death… the death of my 18 year old son…. who took his life… It hurt to breath walk talk think it hurt to live with this loss.. When I turned the radio to 107.1 the first song I heard was JUST BE HELD… I cried and cried and yet I felt so safe in that moment… for the first time I felt god holding me… Every day I turn it to 107.1.. The music lifts my sadness into the hands of god. I pray for myself, my friends and family, the world every day now. I’m growing closer to god. Your song gives me hope for healing and closeness to god. Were going to winter jam for the first time in Desmiones Iowa. Thank you!!! Thank you Casting Crowns!!! Thank you 107.1….

    The first time I really heard this song I was driving home from the hospital, after my husband had just been diagnosed as having paranoid schizophrenia. The line your world is not falling apart, it is falling into place, hit me hard. I knew that God was in control and I just had to trust it would all work out. Well we had applied for disability and were waiting for an answer. We had been denied once then we appealed and were denied again. We then had to wait for a hearing. I kept remembering the promise of God in the song. My world is not falling apart, but it sure felt like it. We finally had our hearing in June of this year, Three and a half years after we applied. The lawyer was sure we had won, it was only a matter of waiting to hear what we were to be awarded. But in August of this year the voices got to much for my husband to handle and he killed himself. I yelled at God I thought my life was supposed to fall into place. He told me he was still working on it. Sometimes it takes a lot to fall into place, and its not always the place we felt it should be. I know God is still working for and with me. A week after his my husbands death we were awarded disability, so I have his back pay coming. recently I was approved for survivor’s benefits. It doesn’t replace my husband, but he was in a lot of pain with all the negative voices. I know he is with god now and he only hears the angels singing, no painful voices. I know God will continue to bring good things into my life, and there are many times when I feel like he is just holding me. Thank you for writing this song and for it being played ever time I have really needed to hear it.
