Overcoming and moving on have automatically become a portion of life, since pain and loss are also elements that complete the essence of living. Time and again, we stumble along the way, and the situations sometimes wound us so deep that we have to pause for a while. Along the process of healing, we feel the sobering sting, but when everything gets fixed, we become stronger more than ever.

 “Stand:” Rascal Flatts

Rascal Flatts shares an inspiring song that talks about the struggles we face in life, and how we surpass them and move on. Released in January 2007 as the fourth and final single off their album, Me and My Gang, “Stand” has a motivational message of staying strong through whatever circumstance we may face. Its reflective message delivered by the band’s harmony made the song became their seventh number one hit on Hot Country Songs. The stirring lyrics arrangement came from the creative minds of Danny Orton and Blair Daly.

Then you “Stand”

You feel like a candle in a hurricane
Just like a picture with a broken frame
Alone and helpless, like you’ve lost your fight
But you’ll be all right, you’ll be all right

No man was made invulnerable. In different ways, and different reasons, sorrow has to envelop our mortality once in a while. For some, their greatest pain is losing a loved one, especially when they’ve gone too soon. Failure in achieving a set goal also causes frustration. While for others, a love that remained unreciprocated can trigger soreness in the heart. During these instances, we’re given a glimpse of how it feels to live in a ghetto – abandoned, defenseless, and pitiful. These are the worst feelings that ever exist.

On your knees, you look up
Decide you’ve had enough
You get mad, you get strong
Wipe your hands, shake it off
Then you stand, then you stand

However, hope is never lost. You just have to hold on, and never let go. Know that everything shall come to pass, in time. For the meantime, you might feel the weight of the situation, and you’ve got no strength to move. Go on, feel the pain. You can shout or burst into tears, but don’t let that bitter moment consume you. Acknowledge that you’ve been hurt, but you also have to gather your remaining strength until you can finally stand on your feet.

During these crippling moments, you need someone to hold on to. As you rise from the ground, your return to life becomes even more glorious, if only you will walk with the One who can bring you to the path that brings out the best in you. Search your heart, He’s always been there for you. It’s but time to shake all the gloom off, and stand tall for the bright tomorrow that awaits for you.
