It never ceases to amaze me how much music can minister to the soul. I can think of so many times in my life where a song connected to what was going on deep inside my heart. Yesterday was one of those times. As my small group was finishing up our meeting, Scott and Jim were working on some sound/tech stuff in the auditorium. They put on some music and the first song that played was Everything Falls by Steve Fee (You may have heard it on the radio recently). I immediately felt overwhelmed…my heart knew what was going on even before my head did. Here?s the chorus from the song
When everything falls apart, your arms hold me together
?When everything falls apart, you?re the only hope for this heart
?When everything falls apart, and my strength is gone
?I find you might and strong, you keep holding on
?You keep holding on
I so relate to these words. So often my best efforts aren?t good enough. Or, I?m faced with a problem that I just can?t get my head around. Or, I don?t live up to my own expectations. At the end of the day, everything can fall apart, but God holds all things together.
Here?s a video of Steve Fee talking about how this song has ministered to some people in the midst of tragedy.
