Music Monday [Your Hands]

This week's selection is Your Hands by J. J. Hellar.  This song is personal and sums up a lot of my hubs' life right now.  You see...he suffers from chronic pain and has a lot of medical issues that just don't seem to get better sometimes.  The Lords' portion has been with us a very long time.  We have prayed for healing, and continue to do so.  Even with all the prayers said, there are a lot of unanswered ones.  We both know there will be complete healing once he lands at the feet of Jesus.  But until then....  


I have unanswered prayers
I have trouble I wish wasn't there
And I have asked a thousand ways
That you would take my pain away
You would take my pain away

I am trying to understand
How to walk this weary land
Make straight the paths that crooked lie Oh Lord, before these feet of mine Oh Lord, before these feet of mine

When my world is shaking, heaven stands
When my heart is breaking
I never leave your hands

When you walked upon the earth
You healed the broken, lost and hurt
I know you hate to see me cry
One day you will set all things right
Yeah, one day you will set all things right

When my world is shaking, heaven stands
When my heart is breaking
I never leave your hands

Your hands that shaped the world
Are holding me
They hold me still



This song is a good reminder that even though I have a lot of blanks for God to fill in, even though things don't work out how I think that they should, and even though we have waited for years for God to move....His hands hold me still.


No matter what, I am gonna love Him...even when I have to wait for His healing that I pray for.  I believe that God is still in the miracle business. And when things get very stressful and I say things I don't mean, and when things get so weary there is nothing to say......  Even then, I will never leave His hands.  For today...that's enough.
