ALL IN GOD’S HANDS

There’s something majestic indeed

When we leave it in God’s hands;

When we come to the undestanding

That only His promises can stand.

When we’re tempted to worry

And when fear grips our heart,

We can either entertain them both

Or boldly tell them to depart.

Both the spirit of fear and worry

Should have no place in our soul,

But they can come to take residence

With firm and fixed strongholds.

Unfortunately it’s easy to allow them in

And most times we’re unaware,

As we believe they’re a natural part of us

But they’re simply a deceptive pair.

God has not given us a spirit of fear

And never plans to torment us;

He desires we have a sound mind

Without the confusion, drama and fuss.

Worrying does not add a stature

But gives us heartaches instead;

Especially when situations are out of our control

And when lies our mind is fed.

When we leave it in God’s hand

There’s a peace that floods our soul;

With a trust and a knowing

That our future He does hold.

When we leave it in God’s hand

We understand the brevity of our life,

And the fact we’re just a vapour

And that His security will suffice.

We worry when we hold onto things

That are transient and temporary,

But the only worry we should have indeed

Is meeting God and as to whether we’re ready.

Worry, fear and depression

Are real and we’re subject to same,

But we’re to lay them at the cross and surrender

Where they simply cannot remain.

Life can be challenging indeed

But when we know He holds our hand;

He wipes our tears and all our fears

With a renewed mind to understand.

When we leave it in His hands

There’s a burden that’s released,

As He opens doors and closes others

And it’s where all strivings and stress has ceased.
