to be held

      No wonder people try to keep painful things buried. Once one surfaces, others come up, too, and before you know it you’re outnumbered. Nobody can face those odds alone. 

“Out of the depths I cry to You . . . for with [You] there is lovingkindness and abundant rescuing. . . .” Psalm 130:1, 6-7

“This is what it means to be held . . . to be loved and to know that the promise was when everything fell we'd be held. . . .” Natalie Grant (lyrics by Krista Wells)
