Have you heard Josh Wilson’s “Carry Me” yet? It’s a song that all of us can relate to at some point or the other. It’s a beautiful portrayal of human desperation and our dependence on God.
At some point in each one of our lives, even the strongest of us reaches a mountain that is too hard to climb. It’s impossible to find a way out of our problem and we feel subdued in the dark, unable to move or do anything. We hit rock bottom and lack the strength to continue any further. We give up.
It’s at this point of time that we begin to seek our Savior. It’s within these depths of futility and defeat that we start looking up and reaching out to our only way out – like Josh Wilson puts it “Savior, please! Keep saving me.”
Nearly a year ago, Josh began experiencing panic attacks that would leave him wide awake in the middle of the night, unable to feel his limbs and his heart racing. These attacks still plague him and he keeps strong, constantly reminding himself of what Paul said in Philippians 4:6-7 : “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus”
This has inspired the song “Carry Me”. It’s a really hard state to be in. And I earnestly request you to keep Josh Wilson in your prayers. It’s a wonderful ministry that he’s doing and he’s a really strong guy to keep going on. We can’t let anything bring down these servants of God. We need to strive against all principalities and powers of darkness that try to pull us down. We need to cling to our Savior for help and healing. Please do pray for Josh, that Jesus, our Savior would help him overcome these painful attacks and provide him with the peace that passes all understanding.

The song in itself is amazing. His talent just gushes through his voice and his fingers on the keyboard. His voice is really smooth and flows. One can easily hear the depth, and the feeling in his voice that helps us relate to the words more. It makes us realize that even if we think we’re so strong, we’re all just standing in sinking sand, about to fall. We all need Jesus to cling to and to rescue us. We can easily see the desperation through his voice and countenance. If this experience doesn’t knock us wide and awake out of our ignorance, I don’t know what else will.
