Turn to Faith. Practice Faith. Trust in Faith. 

Tip to make life better:

Turn to Faith. Practice Faith. Trust in Faith. 

I practice Catholicism. Everyone has their own thoughts and feelings on Faith. I respect and commend anyone who has the strength to practice, as I am starting my journey at the age of 24. Faith has been lost on me since a kid. I could never really wrap my brain around such ideas and concepts. My faith is a work in progress and it is beautiful. 

Anyways…I know this tip will apply to everyone. Trust in Faith. It will change your life! I can go on and on if you ever want to open your ears and hearts to listen. 

On to the blog post!!

Today was especially stressful. Honestly, this past month has been really stressful. Anxiety inducing. The whole nasty bit. … Today it boiled over and I was not able to be my best self.

I had remembered to pray through the stressful times. However, there is more than prayer when practicing faith. Trust in God. I did not fully trust in God during these trying moments. 

(Since I was being a control freak) … 

How many of us do this on a day to day basis?? 

I am thankful I had a friend to remind me to turn to faith. She shared a song to help me to remember. [The song is called Just Be Held by Casting Crows.]

After listening, I remembered …

A relationship with God should be two sided. Aren’t all relationships best if two sided? The relationship will not work soley if prayers are sent to Him. Creating a two sided relationship requires trust to be given, freely and completely. Be patient and wait until He speaks or shows a helpful tip or an answer. It is not known when it will come but, it will carry His love. 

It reminded me to surrender and trust. I gave my pains to Him. I trust he will take care of everything. IMPORTANT NOTE: I still have to do the leg work!! I cannot get lazy. After my work is done – I need to turn to Him. 




Lyrics for reference to the song! Such a powerful reminder, thanks to my friend!

“Just Be Held”

Hold it all together Everybody needs you strong 

But life hits you out of nowhere And barely leaves you holding on
And when you’re tired of fighting Chained by your control There’s freedom in surrender Lay it down and let it go

So when you’re on your knees and answers seem so far away 

You’re not alone, stop holding on and just be held

Your world’s not falling apart, it’s falling into place

I’m on the throne, stop holding on and just be held 

Just be held, just be held

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, you’ll understand I’m painting beauty with the ashes Your life is in My hands

So when you’re on your knees and answers seem so far away 

You’re not alone, stop holding on and just be held

Your worlds not falling apart, its falling into place

I’m on the throne, stop holding on and just be held 

Just be held, just be held

Lift your hands, lift your eyes In the storm is where you’ll find Me And where you are, I’ll hold your heart I’ll hold your heart

Come to Me, find your rest In the arms of the God who won’t let go

So when you’re on your knees and answers seem so far away You’re not alone, stop holding on and just be held

Your worlds not falling apart, its falling into place

I’m on the throne, stop holding on and just be held (stop holding on and just be held)

Just be held, just be held, just be held, just be held
