Held by God after losing a loved one

This song, Held, by Natalie Grant, has been on my heart for the last few days. My thoughts turn to the days when I held my baby daughter, Jennifer, in my arms in her last days before she went to be with Jesus in Heaven. The tears still fall, especially with the prompting of songs like this.

I remember those who are suffering in grief now, especially the Harris family — Gregg, Joel and Kimi, everyone, for their loss of Sono and Faith. My husband and I pray for Gregg and all the Harris’ every day.

    Lyrics for Held by Natalie Grant —

    Two months is too little ,
    they let him go, they had no sudden healing,
    To think that providence would
    take a child from his mother while she prays is appalling.

    Who told us we’d be rescued?
    what has changed and why should we be saved from nightmares.

    we’re asking why this happens to us
    who have died to live? It’s unfair.


    This is what it means to be held
    How it feels when the sacred is torn from your life and you survive.

    This is what it is to be loved
    and to know that the promise was
    when everything fell we’d be held

    This hand is bitterness
    we want to taste it, let the hatred numb our sorrow
    The wise hand opens slowly lilies of the valley and tomorrow .


    If hope is born of suffering if this is only the beginning can we not wait for one hour watching our savior

    Chorus (x2)
