I have a tendency to crumble with it. Not right away, not quickly, but I do indeed crumble. There have been a few times that things were built back up fast enough that I did not fall before it was resurrected. Usually, though, even if it's briefly, I crack. I find myself in a real struggle mentally, emotionally, and even spiritually - though I don't always recognize that part of it.
So what do you do? How do you keep going and not just sit at home moping or crying or hiding from everything and everyone? Well, for me, it's often found in music. Which then leads me to Scripture, which is the spoken Word from God to me. (!) And of course, the best place to go is God - so even though I pray a lot through whatever circumstance I find myself in, the
music --> Scripture --> God's heartis the path that takes me outside my own head and realigns me with the One who can not only sort it out, but make it worth it.
Today, the song thankfully stuck in my head is Everything Falls by Fee. Specifically repeating:
You said You'd never leave or forsake meGod is, indeed, good. And the best place to begin rebuilding is worship.
When you said, this life is gonna shake me
There will be storms in this life
But I know You will overcome, you have overcome
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 mighty and strong, You keep holding on
