held.

This has been the song I’ve sung the most while on the field. It has brought comfort and peace countless times.

A m-worker visiting from China shared it with me a few months after I arrived in Thailand. And another m-worker shared it with her years ago when she was living alone in the Middle East.

I remember when we first sang it in my kitchen. I remember how sweet it was to my soul. The song called out so precisely the words that were scattered in my heart. I remember how uplifting it was to sing with other m-workers. I remember how just moments before we shared with each other the struggles of being on the field. And I remember how we cried out to God in song and in prayer.

As this song yet again ministers to me tonight…I remember all the men, women, and children who do life among the unreached for Jesus. May they know that they are held, today and everyday.

Missionaries, you are loved. Praying this song over you.
