Pray For Mark

We never realized when we wrote the song “Just
Be Held” it would be our current testimony for
what we are going through right now. God always
has a way of preparing our hearts.
Here is something that Mark wrote a year ago and
it rings even truer today.
“I was out with my students surfing in Florida once
and we were just learning how to get up and how
to do this thing. I never mastered it, but when I
got the closest to getting on the board a wave hit
me and I went rolling. I rolled so many times that I
realized I didn’t know where up was. I couldn’t
figure out where the air was. The light was going
everywhere and that was a terrifying feeling of no
control (absolutely no control). I think when life’s
storm hits us, that’s what we’re looking for. We’re
looking for something we can grab onto and steady
ourselves…we may even look at our faith that way.
I need to grab onto God and steady myself, but
what I’m finding even in our recent storm of life
with our little girl Hope, and all the things that
she’s been through medically, is that I just can’t
grab a hold of something. What I’ve got to
understand is that God is taking a hold of me.
Instead of being the ‘fixer Daddy’ that grabs a hold
of whatever I can and makes this work, I’ve got to
understand that I’m already in His hands. I’m
already being held and I’m already in His control
and in His protection, even in the chaos. This song,
to me, reminds me that I am being held by Him. As
crazy as it is when I look around me, I’ve got to
rest in that truth.”
If your eyes are on the storm
You’ll wonder if I love you still
But if your eyes are on the cross
You’ll know I always have and I always will
And not a tear is wasted
In time, youll understand
Im painting beauty with the ashes
Your life is in My hands
