Beautiful song

I find

Natalie Grant - Held"

Two months is too little
They let him go
They had no sudden healing
To think that providence would
Take a child from his mother while she prays
Is appalling

Who told us we’d be rescued?
What has changed and why should we be saved from nightmares?
We’re asking why this happens
To us who have died to live?
It’s unfair

Chorus:
This is what it means to be held
How it feels when the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive
This is what it is to be loved
And to know that the promise was
When everything fell we’d be held

This hand is bitterness
We want to taste it, let the hatred NUMB our sorrow
The wise hands opens slowly to lilies of the valley and tomorrow

(Chorus) ...
This is what it means to be held
How it feels when the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive
This is what it is to be loved
And to know that the promise was
When everything fell we’d be held

Bridge:
If hope is born of suffering
If this is only the beginning
Can we not wait for one hour watching for our Savior?

(Chorus)
This is what it means to be held
How it feels when the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive
This is what it is to be loved
And to know that the promise was
When everything fell we’d be held

There's a lot of spiritual stuff

Yeah, I know, I have no right to compare these fears to someone else's grief, but I find this stuff comforting because it tells me some stuff:
God is the same God who holds people who are dealing with grief. He supports them. He loves them. The fact that I'm going through all of this does not mean that He isn't here. He still loves me, and He's not going to leave me.
Why, then, can't I stop the horrible thoughts of fear? Why can't I stop the anger? I'm doing all I can to avoid being angry. I have sore arms to prove it; I tried to do fake Ti-bo moves yesterday to burn off some energy. I don't understand why the same things always trip me up. It makes no sense. Something in the book I'm currently reading made me pause. It's a Christian fiction book. One of the characters was badly injured and had recovered. She said something interesting in her thoughts. The sentence was something like this: She had given God all her anger and He had taken it without reflecting it back. That was just really really powerful. I've been thinking about that all day.
Okay, so in the middle of that paragraph, I heard a knock on my door. I didn't know who it was. It was two women (I can't remember if they were both sisters or not). They are praying a blessing over all of the rooms. This may sound stupid, but it came at just the right time. It has to be from God!

Hugs!

Isn't it amazing how God senses our needs and sends us just the right person at the right time??

Good luck with everything! Continue to seek God and I know you'll make it through!!
