Fully Aimed In Trusting Him...

Just as Job struggled, in anger & despair through the loss of everything he had, family, friends, home, job, wealth, & health... I can only hope & pray to stay as trusting & faithful.

I'm wishing and praying everyone has as peaceful and as painless a night/day as possible. And may your tomorrow's be even better than the day before! 🙏🌼

Flappys, Thank You! 😘 what my week has been like has been awful yes! But you put it in a way I can understand better. With Job his wife even told him to curse God and die, but he refused and what was lost God gave back 10 fold. A great reminder of what God's protection against the Devil is like.

Flappys, thank you for posting this. In the last few months, I have honestly felt like Job with everything happening to me and not having one bit of control over it. But the words of a casting crowns song have always brought my faith and spirit back to me. The words are this, "When your on your knees and answers seem so far away, your not alone, stop holding on and just be held." Even typing that just now has sent chills down my back, because it's true. It's okay to be afraid with something, but sometimes we just need to turn it loose.

Oh Amanda! I love love Casting Crowns! I have their coming to the well CD! When my life fell apart in 2010 with my ex (then husband) cheating and then leaving me and the kids I didn't know what to do! His Aunt was a God sent and so was the Movie Courageous, even though it was geared to dads I felt God talk to me through that movie. I went and saw it with another single parent a father of 5 and let me tell you his faith and his additude made me go to God even more! Thru the Rape the Divorce and every other thing my ex's wife tried to throw at me.God is Awesome! I also live Matthew West Song's Forgiveness and Moved by Mercy off of his Into the Light CD. And Overcomer by Mandesia! My fav songs that get me through anything!

Mopar, we need to get the newest Cd, Thrive. That is where Just be held can be found. The first time I heard it was in July, after the first set of facet joint injections. Was feeling beyond low and they actually started out with Praise you in this storm, and then played Just be held. Was bailing like a baby by the time it was done.

Thank you! I needed this today. I feel like I'm at my wits end. Currently I'm on leave from work due to my chronic pain and neck issues. For the past 2 years I've struggled daily and it continues to get worse. I get no answers or no diagnosis. I feel like I'm not even listened to. I need to put my faith in God that he will lead me in the right direction and hopefully a Doctor that can help get me some answers.

Amanda I just listened to Just be Held and it just had me in tears! I had literally just gotten off the phone with my Aunt's Doctor who said that hospice was the only way they could treat her at home that she couldn't handle going under not even for a biopsy of anything. That song came at a time I sure needed! With my dad dying and now my Aunt I need to cling to God now more then ever! Thank You Amanda! 😘

Nov 17, 2015 6:58 PM

Mopar, you are so welcome. Glad I could be of some help tonight.

Nov 17, 2015 7:09 PM

That you were, a good cry is exactly what I needed after a week and a day like today.

Nov 17, 2015 7:18 PM

I can completely understand needing a good cry. I've been there a time or two.

Nov 17, 2015 8:58 PM

Ladies, I love every one of the songs you have mentioned! 🙏🌼

Flappys, I don't know if you knew that Mark Hall wrote just be held just after his diagnosis with kidney cancer and yes, it speaks volumes. That was the song that I was listening to shortly before I went under anesthesia in October and I have listened to that song prior to both procedures in October. I had it so loud I couldn't actually hear anything that was going on, and barely felt the pain from it.

Nov 17, 2015 10:31 PM

Just be held is my new fav. Song!

Nov 18, 2015 5:51 AM

Amanda, that is really awesome, and moving. I had child just reading your post! 🙏🌼

Anytime I'm being put under I either review the Lord's prayer or start humming a song like one listed.

Nov 18, 2015 6:07 AM

Flappys, I do have another favorite one before going under and that would be either "you are god alone" by Phillips, Craig and Dean or I will follow by Chris Tomlin

Nov 18, 2015 6:28 AM

Phillips Craig & Dean is one of my favorite groups, and I love that song! 🙏🌼

Nov 18, 2015 6:37 AM

Same here and I'm wondering if I can stick my tablet under my pillow tomorrow and just bring it in the procedure room with me. Heehee,

You know the last couple of nights I've gone to bed listening to what songs I have paid for over the years to try and put me in a calmer more um saine if their such a state of mind anymore lol and I listen to it on the way to the hospital to keep me from breaking down in front of my Aunt. She and the kids need me now more then ever! I am adding Just be held to that list!
