Not Falling Apart-Falling into Place

During one of the most trying times in my life to date- I felt as if my world was falling apart. Each day came with a new surprise that would bring more pieces crumbling down around me.

It seemed as if no matter how hard I tried, I prayed, I cried, and begged God to help me- nothing ever changed. I literally felt as if I was losing my mind, my body, my family, and my life in general.

I studied the Bible, sought after God’s direction, and desperately wanted change. However, it seemed as if the more I fought to overcome- the more that seemed to be going “wrong”.
I held on to my faith knowing that God’s word tells us in John 16:33 that in this world we will have tribulation but to be of good cheer because He has overcome the world.

My problems were big but I knew my God was bigger. I couldn’t help but to feel hurt, forgotten, ignored, and many other emotions as things continued to not work out the way I wanted them to.

I was also aware that God’s plan is what will prevail but as many of us do, I seemed to have “forgotten” this little- yet VERY important piece.

A very dear friend of mine, a co-worker at the time, told me to listen to the song Just Be Held by Casting Crowns. It was an emotional day so I immediately took my break and listened to the song.

Oh my goodness! Oh my goodness! This song was PERFECT! I broke down in tears and balled like a baby. This was just what I needed to remind me of who is in control, the one I have in my corner fighting for me (even when we don’t see it or feel it).

If you haven’t heard the song you need to… “Your world is not falling apart-it’s falling into place! Just be held..”

God spoke to me through this song in such a powerful way. Reminding me that I am like an infant child to Him. He holds me, protects me, wipes my tears, and carries me through the storm. EVERY SINGLE TIME- NO MATTER WHAT! All I have to do is reach up my arms and ask Him to help me, hold me, protect me, and get me through this trying time.

God doesn’t want us to worry, stress, and feel overwhelmed by the things happening in the world today or in our personal lives. God only wants us to TRUST IN HIM and LOVE HIM with our whole heart, mind, and soul.(John 10:27)

Sometimes when life gets us down and we feel as if we are being kicked repeatedly by the enemy- we need to change our perspective. God works all things for the good to those who love Him (Romans 8:28)

So remember the next time it feels like your world is falling apart…ITS FALLING INTO PLACE. Find peace in knowing it’s in God’s time and He will ALWAYS carry you through if you ask Him.
