The Precious Hand of God

Post by Shirley Baucom » Sun Mar 25, 2018 4:24 pm

The Precious Hand of God

I find on life’s journey at times the road
Becomes dark and miry like sinking sand;
Pulling me down ‘til I can’t go on;
Weakened, afraid, I can no longer stand.

But from miry clay the Lord lifts me up
‘Til I’m safe on solid ground
And trusting His Hand holding me close;
I keep going on, I’ll not turn around.

My hand's in the Hand of Jesus my Lord,
Whenever, wherever my pathway leads,
I’m constantly guided to the throne of God
Where for me, His Spirit intercedes.

Onward I go with faith in that Hand
That lovingly guides me day after day
Reaching for me when I’m weak or careless,
Drawing me back when I’m tempted to stray.

In times of sorrow and unbearable pain
Christ’s Hands draw me close to His heart
He lets me know He’s always with me
With loving comfort and strength to impart

Thank God for His almighty Hand of Blessings;
Hands of love full of peace and joy;
Giving strength in my weakness, Light in my darkness
And Hope that nothing can ever destroy.

Very beautiful Shirley, I reread it already a few times, for it really helps me thru the very difficult situation me and my family are going thru. The Lord, years ago, once asked Me : "do you want to help me carry My Cross."
And I said : "O yes Lord, yes, of course" In the meantime I know the heaviness of His Cross!!!"
Poor Jesus and You carried it for us, sinners !!!!
Pray for us Shirley, I don't want to succumb, I want to follow my Savior and my King !!!
Have a blessed Holy Week and a very very graceful Pesach (Passover).
God bless you today, tomorrow and ongoing !!!

Thank you for the sweet comments Rita. God is so good and wonderful, always here for us and I will continue to keep you in prayer and I am grateful for your continued prayer for me and my walk with the Lord. I have suffered much pain lately as my daughter is fighting advanced 4-stage Trigeminal Negative Breast Cancer. She's a wonderful Godly woman and has a wonderful Christian husband with her at all times. Without the Lord, I could not handle all that's involved with her illness, and I am dealing with other painful problems also. I know you have serious problems you've mentioned to me previously and please know that I pray for you and commit you and your family to the Lord' s loving Hand and Keeping.

God be wth you always, Shirley
