Pass It On: The Arms That Hold The Universe

If anyone knows about suffering, or understands how much we suffer–it’s God. He died on the cross for us. He suffered that shame, that pain, that death for us, not because He was guilty of anything, but because He wanted to.  He loves us unconditionally. I tell you all; I am very thankful for Gods’ love and mercy. I am so very glad that the Lord saved me, because I wouldn’t know what I would do otherwise.

I am writing like this because I am so very thankful that I know and love God. Not a lot of people can say that, and I am in no way more special than anyone else, so I am utterly grateful to God, grateful for His grace and mercy. I struggle with so many things sometimes, and I berate myself and ask “Why am I doing this when I know better?”. I do not presume to know the answer, but I can see that its a struggle with myself. I need to give God control, and I am praying that He gives me the strength to give him complete control, and for me to follow along the path He has for me and not deviate from that in any way. I do not want that.

When God saves you, your eyes definitely Open up–Yeah, I know its a cliche, but cliches become cliches for a reason–and you suddenly see what’s important and have such a great desire to do that. But more than that, you feel such happiness, such peace you can not feel anywhere else. It’s not a lie. God’s peace just squelches all unnecessary fear, all worry, just all the bad tings, and when you feel that feeling, you just know.  But what I like about that is that having God saving me from the penalty of death, I can pray freely. I can communicate with my father in heaven without there being any doubt of him hearing me.

Of course being a follower of Christ is not an easy thing, its beautiful because of all the inexplicable freedom, but it is a difficult path. You constantly get attack by the devil and the world and you think, “what?”. And even though God told us that through his words in the bible, we still go “what?”. So even though we know better, why is it so hard to do the right thing? We are getting attack, and instead of calling on God and asking for his strength and asking for his wisdom, we try to do things our self, which is the worst idea ever. I am so guilty of that. And if you are like me, and the worry, the guilt and all the negative thoughts come in your head about yourself, about your worth, about whether or not God loves you, just remember that YES God loves me, even when I am not at my best. Yes God would still have died for me, even If I was the only sinner ever lived. Lets put all those fears away, because the arms that hold the universe is holding us. Remember God is always Holding you, He is always healing you, and don’t fear him reprimanding us, for we are indeed his children who needs to be corrected when we are wrong. You correct the ones you love. So pass it on, we are indeed loved, and we are being held by the Almighty God, our father who loves us. I am so thankful, because I am so very undeserving.  This song is just awesome and it just shows us how much we have, how having God in our lives and on our side–Which he always is– is so great. Here is Arms that hold the universe by 33 miles.

Here are the lyrics:

I know it seems like this could be
The darkest day you’ve known
But believe you me
The god of strength will never let you go
He will overcome i know

And the arms that hold the universe
Are holding you tonight
You can rest inside
It’s gonna be alright

And the voice that calmed the raging sea
Is calling you his child
So be still and know he’s in control
He will never let you go

Through many dangers toils and snares
You have already come
His grace has brought you safe this far
His grace will lead you home

And the arms that hold the universe
Are holding you tonight
You can rest inside
It’s gonna be alright

And the voice that calmed the raging sea
Is calling you his child
So be still and know he’s in control
He will never let you go

You can hope you can rise you can stand
He’s still got the whole world in his hands
You can hope you can rise you can stand
He’s still got the whole world
The whole world in his hands

And the arms that hold the universe
Are holding you tonight
You can rest inside
It’s gonna be alright

And the voice that calmed the raging sea
Is calling you his child
So be still and know he’s in control
He will never let you go
He will never let you go
