Pass It On: Come Close and Hold My Heart

Sometimes I feel so insignificant and that no matter how muuch I pray and pray, it only goes so far. I feel as if imt he only one hearing it and it gets no further than my own ears. I feel as if, no matter how much or how long or how loud I pray god wont hear me. So many others are praying, so many others are calling out. And then there are times when I feel as if whatever i did, or whatever is holding me back is so irreversible.

But you know what’s better than getting our problems or our mistakes reversed? Being forgiven for them. being cleansed. Helped. Feeling so irrevocably relieved that the sun is just a little bit brighter and the sky is a little bluer. Feeling as if what ever other problem crops up tomorrow, the next minute or whenever, you can handle it. Feeling so completely refreshed and optimistic that if you smile at a stranger, you share some of your happiness.

The song that inspired this post is “Hold My Heart” by Tenth Avenue North. As always, the lyrics, the melody–pretty much everything–blows me away. Not only does the song signifies with me,  It also helps me to further examine myself, and brings me closer to god. It helps so much. And whomever reads this post, I also hope it helps. Its a really great song.

How long must I pray, must I pray to you?
How long must I wait, must I wait for you?
How long till I see your face, see you shining through?
I’m on my knees, begging you to notice me?
I’m on my knees, father will you turn to me?
Yeah.

One tear in the dropping rain. One voice in a sea of pain.
Could the maker of the stars hear the sound of my breaking heart.
One life is all I am, right now I can barely stand.
If your everything you say you are, would you come close and hold my heart?

I’ve been so afraid, afraid to close my eyes.
So much can slip away, before I say goodbye.
But l if theres no other way, im done asking why.

‘Cause im on my knees, begging you to turn to me.
Im on my knees, father will you run to me?
Yeah

One tear in the dropping rain. One voice in a sea of pain.
Could the maker of the stars hear the sound of my breaking heart.
One life is all I am, right now I can barely stand.
If your everything you say you are, would you come close and hold my heart.

So many questions without answer, your promises remain.
I cant see but i’ll take my chances, to hear you call my name.
To hear you call my name.

One tear in the dropping rain. One voice in a sea of pain.
Could the maker of the stars hear the sound of my breaking heart.
One life is all I am, right now I can barely stand.
If your everything you say you are, would you come close and hold my heart.

 

Pass It On: For You, The Answer To Your Question

I hope this helps to lift you up, so you can see, and know, just how special you are to me, your family, and god who made you for a purpose. I love you, and I want you to know that. I’m not saying it because we’re friends and its what we do, I’m saying it because I love you! I love who you are, I love how god made you and I want you to love you and see what everyone who loves and knows you see’s. Truly loves and knows you. Be enlightened:

Why are you striving these days?

Why are you trying, to earn grace?

Why are you crying?

Let me lift up your face, Just dont turn away

Why are you looking for love?

Why are you still searching as if im not enough?

To where will you go child?

Tell me where will you run, to where will you run?

‘Cause I’ll be by your side, wherever you fall

In the dead of night whenever you call

And please dont fight these hands that are holding you

My hands are holdng you

Look at these hands at my side

They swallowed the grave on that night

When I drank the world’s sin

So I can carry you in, and give you life

I wanna give you life

And I’ll be by your side wherever you fall

In the dead of night whenever you call

And please dont fight these hands that are holding you

My hands are holding you

Here at my side wherever you fall

In the dead of night whenever you call

And please dont fight these hands that are holding you

My hands are holding you

‘Cause I, I love you, I want you to know

Yeah I, I love you, I’ll never let you go

No, no

And I’ll be by your side wherever you fall

In the dead of night whenever you call

And please dont fight these hands that are holding you

My hands are holding you

Here at my side wherever you fall

In the dead of night whenever you call

And please dont fight these hands that are holding you

My hands are holding you

Here at my side

My hands are holding you.

                           Lyrics for  “By Your Side”—By Tenth Avenue North

I love you! Whenever you feel helpless, you’re not. Whenever you feel alone.,you’re not. Whenever you feel unloved, you’re not. I’ll never stop telling you the words, I just want you to one day believe it and tell yourself it. I’m not perfect, I dont think anyone is, and I dont want to sound all know-it-all, as if I too don’t have those days. We all have those day’s…but it all depends on how you look at it and deal with it in the end. Dont let it build up and build up, just let it out, see whats real. Take it a day at a time if you have to. Just don’t ever feel like you can’t deal with it.

This post is dedicated to a friend of mine, and to everyone else out there who needs to hear these words. I NEEDED (still need) to hear these words. And I tell you, it brings tears to my eyes everytime. These words just remind me of the most wonderful and miraculous thing I have in my life (that we all have) and thats God’s love for us. All of us! Let it be a comfort and a reminder to you as it is to me.

He’s by your side 😉
