Every Moment

Every moment of my life
Is in Your hands
Father.

Good times, bad times,
Great times and sad times.
You hold them all.

Do you feel the sorrow
When times are not good?
Do you rejoice
On the good days?

I know you do.
I feel Your touch
recognise
Your breath in my soul.

I am set alight by joy
When I remember
That You hold me.
Forever.
Every moment
Of my life
In Your hands.
Those hands are my home.

I had a difficult time a few weeks ago with someone I love dearly and it was totally irrational. I fell into an emotional black hole and couldn’t get out. The next day I was going upstairs and I just said ‘Help, Lord.’
Almost at once this phrase, ‘all of your days are in my hands’.came intg my mind. I recognized it as a Psalm and when I looked it up in my translation (Jerusalem Bible) it read, ‘Every moment of my life is in your hands’ Ps 31:15. I felt the darkness leave me in an instant and I was so relieved and overjoyed that I should have such a large response to God’s word. Today I wrote this poem as my response to a loving God.

    … so beautiful and blessed to know this kind of joy …. because this is a kind of joy one can feel despite difficulties … it reaches much deeper and higher and wider (and everything in between..) than any difficulties could :))

    This is so true and it has to be experienced to be known I think. Thank you for your comments. I feel known in the best sort of way. :0)Song

    Beautiful writing Jody. Isn’t it wonderful when we experience the Word of God come down and pull us out of the pit of sadness or despair? I love that Scripture…good to see you and know you are hanging
    in there : ) You are loved.
