His Hands

"My times are in your hands." Psalm 31:15

Time. Past, present and future. The mystery of tomorrow, the moment of today and the memory of yesterday all held in God's hands. Hands that have arranged every event and shaped every course.

Not only is our future in His hands, but our frame is also. A Father's hand holds us. Pierced hands. Outstretched hands. Beautiful hands. Merciful hands. Comforting hands. Guiding hands. Instructing hands. Loving hands. Sustaining hands. Stengthening hands. Supportive hands. Protecting hands. Delivering hands. Freeing hands.

"In all that has been sent, in all that has been recalled, and in all that has been withheld; his hand, noiseless and unseen, has moved. Ah! yes, that hand of changeless love blend's a sweet with every bitter, pencils a bright rainbow on each dark cloud, upholds each faltering step, shelters within its hollow, and guides with unerring skill, his chosen people safe to eternal glory." Octavius Winslow

His hands not only allow, but they also restrain. With all that has happened recently in my life, with all that is happening, and all that is yet to happen, I am so thankful to surrender myself into such capable hands.
