It seems like every week I have a “new” favorite song. I’ll share it with you in a sec. But let me begin this blogpost stating the obvious: “It often dawns on me just how significant music is…for all of us.” I read some notable words from Albert Einstein. “If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music.” That may be true of all of us. Now, here’s my latest fav: You Hold It All Together by Maverick City. I think one of the reasons this song resonates with me, the statement in the title declares “God holds things together.” That is a message of stability and sovereignty. I need to hear that daily…hourly.
I write this blog just days after war has broken out between Israel and Hamas. The events of the day, whether global or local, often seem totally out of control. The reality is they are out of OUR control. This song is a biblical reminder that ultimately, our God holds all things…your life…your family…the entire world TOGETHER.
The Apostle Paul stated in the midst of persecution and suffering, For in him (Jesus Christ) all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.Colossians 1:16-17
