Old Meeting House Congregational Church (1643)

The Best Hidden Church in Norwich

God Carries us in his Hands

Many of us face difficult and painful times in our lives when we feel very vulnerable and very much alone. During these times great comfort can be found in the Bible. Over the centuries Christians have been able to testify that God’s promises can be totally relied on. One such promise is found in 1 Corinthians chapter 10 verse 13. “So far you have faced no trial beyond what man can bear. God keeps faith, and He will not allow you to be tested above your powers, but when the test comes He will at the same time provide a way out, by enabling you to sustain it.” 

I recently came across a song by Moriah Peters, “You Carry Me” which was the very thing that I needed to hear when I was going through a tough time. Let me share the chorus with you and I hope you will also be encouraged.


Every moment of my life
God, You never left my side
Every valley, every storm
You were there, You were there
I don’t need to know what’s next
You’ll be with me every step
Through it all, through it all
I can see You carry me


Here’s the song’s video:

After searching the internet I found an interview with Mrs. Peters about the background of “You Carry Me”. Along with speaking about marrying her husband (lead singer of For King and Country) in San Clemente, CA, she shared:

I often forget that God is faithful, and that I’m not alone, and that leads me to feel discouraged or afraid.  And I wanted the song … to be a reminder … that no matter what difficulty we’re facing, no matter how hard the storm or the situation, no matter how many questions we’re asking, no matter how many doubts we’re experiencing, that God never leaves … He carries us through those difficult times when we’re at the end of our rope, when we don’t have enough strength, He’s there to be that for us.

At the end of watching this interview, I was really encouraged and I pray that you will be as well. May you also be encouraged, by another promise made by Jesus which can be found in Hebrews chapter 13 verse 5. “I will never leave you or desert you; and so we can take courage and say, “The Lord is my helper, I will not fear; what can man do to me?”

Here’s the interview with Moriah Peters.
