Sadie Robertson wears a key around her neck. She revealed what it means in her recent YouTube video.
It’s called a Giving Key. Hers says “Even when.” What the heck does this mean?
Well, her last Giving Key said “Fearless,” which she ended up tattooing on her forearm. That key, Sadie says, helped her.
“I still hung on to that ‘Fearless’ Giving Key,” she says in the video. “It actually got me through a lot of things.”
So what’s the whole idea of a Giving Key?
It’s a key you wear as a necklace that has a word on it. That word is meant to remind you of truth, to help you in difficult times. Then, after that key has run its course and you’ve conquered what that key was meant to help you with, you pass the key on to someone who needs it.
And Sadie’s reason for getting a custom-made key saying “Even when” is rooted in Psalm 46.
“Even when the bad times come, what we have to do is we have to be still,” she says. “And we have to not be afraid.”
So what, we just have to stuff down our emotions of fear and worry? No, that’s not what she’s saying. She is saying we talk to those emotions, tell them the truth so they settle down.
“The reason we have to not be afraid is because we know what God is doing for us,” she says. “He’s protecting us, he’s covering us, and he’s providing a place of joy and a place of rest and a place of peace.”
So that’s why — even when the earthquakes of life hit — Sadie holds on to her necklace, reminding her to not fear but to hope.
