When you think of being held, what comes to mind? A mother cradling her newborn in her arms? A hug from a friend after an exhausting day? Jervis Campbell’s “Hold Me Together” describes the ever-present and embracing love that Christ demonstrates to us. When we hear these words, we can reflect on God’s incredible promises to us.

How can it be

That in a moment

That in a second

Love is resurrected

And oh, I believe

That you were broken

But it is spoken

Love is resurrected

From “Hold Me Together” by Jervis Campbell

Amidst the chaos and uncertainty that life brings, “Hold Me Together” is a reminder to take time to rest and find comfort in knowing and trusting the One who holds us in His arms. Our peace and our hope ultimately come from Christ, who sustains us through any fear or trial we may face.

As He says, “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light” (Matthew 11:28-30).

No matter what worry or anxiety you may be confronting today, our God sees you, knows you, and loves you beyond what you could ever imagine. May we never forget His sweet, prevailing presence, resting in the promise that His arms are open wide as He takes our brokenness and makes us beautiful.

Hold on, my love

Hold on to me

Hold on, my friend

Come close to me
