About

The inspiration behind this book is from the song Be Held by Casting Crowns. I was listening to this one day driving home from seeing my family in New Mexico. I had heard this song many times but for some reason certain words of this song really jumped out to me.

Be Held by Casting Crowns

Hold it all together (I am holding on)
Everybody needs you strong (I will be strong)
But life hits you out of nowhere (Often when I’m not expecting it)
And barely leaves you holding on (Hold to the iron rod as tight as you can)

And when you’re tired of fighting (Sometimes I get so tired)
Chained by your control
There’s freedom in surrender (I surrender all)
Lay it down and let it go ( I will let go and let God)

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

(Your not just falling into place, you are falling into fabulous)

I’m on the throne, stop holding on and just be held
Just be held, just be held (Be Held and Be Fabulous)

If your eyes are on the storm
You’ll wonder if I love you still (I know I am loved)
But if your eyes are on the cross
You’ll know I always have and I always will (I know, I know)

And not a tear is wasted (I know my tears are tears of growth, overcoming and perseverance)
In time, you’ll understand
I’m painting beauty with the ashes (Paint me into something beautiful, let me rise glorious, victorious, from the ashes of my past and I will rise into the Phoenix that I am)
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

(Your not just falling into place, you are falling into fabulous)

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

(Your not just falling into place, you are falling into fabulous)

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

  1. Beautiful song and lyrics. With much about God that is confusing to me, I simply cannot connect to just being held. I guess some people can sense bring held by Him, but not I.
