Have you ever heard the song Just Be Held from Casting Crowns?
It’s one of those songs that just hits you and reminds you that you’re not alone. Something I struggle to remember.
I was talking to a friend last night about how sometimes I just feel like I’m drowning. There is so much STUFF. Stuff to do. Stuff to remember. Stuff to pay. Stuff to… whatever.
I so frequently get so overwhelmed with everything. Trying to be the mother He wants me to be. The friend He wants me to be. The daughter, daughter-in-law, granddaughter He wants me to be. The employee He expects. The aunt He wants. The Proverbs 31 wife.
It’s too much. Sometimes I’m just done. I’m just done trying. I’m just done fretting. I’m just done sinking into the quick sand of trial and error. Trying to be something I’ll never amount to.
What am I thinking? I don’t need to hold it all together. I just need to stop offering to do. I need to start accepting help. I need to just be held. By. HIM. I need to let him take over and care for me. Let HIM accomplish HIS goals for my life. Let HIM parent my children. Let HIM be my all.
I need to stop and let GOD.
