My Life Is Your Hands, Lord



As I was getting ready to travel to Philadelphia for Jim's surgery today, this song by Kathy Troccoli came to my mind.  Yes, today especially I think of how Jim's life is in the Lord's hands, but in all reality each and every day our lives are in His hands. 

Each day when we awake, none of us know what is ahead of us.  As Kathy Troccoli sings, "life can be so good, life can be so hard....", but as she sings the chorus, " My life is in your hands; My heart is in your keeping; I'm never without hope; Not when my future is with you; My life is in your hands; And though I may not see clearly; I will lift my voice and sing; Cause your love does amazing things; Lord, I know, my life is in your hands;"

Dear Heavenly Father, Jim and I do not know what our imminent  future holds; but we do know that whatever it may be, we are never without hope because our future is with You - Our life is in Your most loving and capable hands.  Thank you Lord for your grace, loving kindness, tender mercies, blessed hope, and healing hands.  Lord, our lives are in Your precious hands.  Thank You, In Jesus precious name, Amen.



Life can be so good
Life can be so hard
Never knowing what each day
Will bring to where you are
Sometimes I forget
And sometimes I can't see
That whatever comes my way
You'll be with me

My life is in your hands
My heart is in your keeping
I'm never without hope
Not when my future is with you

My life is in your hands
And though I may not see clearly
I will lift my voice and sing
Cause your love does amazing things
Lord, I know, my life is in your hands

Nothing is for sure
Nothing is for keeps
All I know is that your love
Will live eternally
So I will find my rest,
And I will find my peace
Knowing that you'll meet my every need

My life is in your hands
My heart is in your keeping
I'm never without hope
Not when my future is with you

My life is in your hands
And though I may not see clearly
I will lift my voice and sing
Cause your love does amazing things
Lord, I know, my life is in your hands

When I'm at my weakest Lord
You carry me
Then I become my strongest Lord
In your hands

My life is in your hands
And though I may not see clearly
I will lift my voice and sing
Cause your love does amazing things
Lord, I know, my life is in your hands
I trust you Lord
My life is in your hands

Our lives are in His hands. Yes... It is. My life is in His hands and I trust Him. Life has been very challenging, but He knows what's best. He holds my life.
