In His Hand

Hold Me Jesus
(Big Daddy Weave)

Well sometimes my life just don't make sense at all
When the mountain look so big and my faith just seems so small
So hold me Jesus, 'cause I'm shaking like a leaf
You have been King of my Glory, won't You be my Prince of Peace

And I wake up in the night and feel the dark
It's so hot inside my soul, I swear there must be blisters on my heart
So hold me Jesus, 'cause I'm shaking like a leaf
You have been King of my Glory, won't You be my Prince of Peace

Surrender don't come natural to me
I'd rather fight You for something I don't really want
Than to take what you give that I need
And I've beat my head against so many walls
Now I'm falling down, I'm falling on my knees

And this Salvation Army band is playing this hymn
And your grace rings out so deep it makes my resistance seem so thin
So hold me Jesus, 'cause I'm shaking like a leaf
You have been King of my Glory, won't you be my Prince of Peace

I'm singing, hold me Jesus, 'cause I'm shaking like a leaf
You have been King of my glory, won't You be my Prince of Peace
You have been King of my glory, won't You be my Prince of Peace


I don't know about life in your neighborhood, but life here's pretty hectic. We're preparing to house a lot of company, beginning next week and so begins the work of the 'Clean House' :D!
So, my writing will be short. I heard this song a couple of weeks ago and put the lyrics straight into my drafts, because I just loved it and began singing along with it like I'd know it forever. To me, it came as a timely reminder of the season we're in, the love and grace that He represents to each and every person. It also spoke truth about my humanness and the short-comings that come along with that one.

But as I sit here, I'm just enamoured by His love and what it is, to be in the palm of His hand and to be held by Him. That's truly a gift worth celebrating.

"Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you...And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast."
(1 Peter 5:6-7, 10)
