In The Hands of God

Still breaking away from the blog & resting & planning, but I wanted to post this song this morning. It always ministers to me. Love the chorus:

"In the hands of God we will fall
Rest for the restless, and the weary
Hope for the sinner
In the hands of God we stand tall
Hands that are mighty to deliver
Giving us freedom..."



In The Hands of God
Newsboys

We have raised our hopes and our cities high
We have followed fragile dreams
But only One could take the measure of our goals
And we've stumbled over the trials of life
And we've wrestled the unseen
But only One can calm the storm inside our souls

In the hands of God we will fall
Rest for the restless, and the weary
Hope for the sinner
In the hands of God we stand tall
Hands that are mighty to deliver
Giving us freedom

When our strength gave way to the weight of guilt
'Til we strained for every breath
Only One could lift our shame and make us well
And when all is finished and we face
The fearsome power of death
Only One has overcome the gates of hell

You're amazing
You're amazing, You are
And we praise You, Lord
For what Your hands have done

Glad you're having a good blog break. I'll be taking one over the summer too - a time to reflect, refresh and re-focus. Thanks for sharing this beautiful song. Blessings!

Isn't it amazing what we can find to fill our time and steal our energy and focus? And yet there is "only One" who is worthy to be honored and praised. Great lyrics!

Our God is truly amazing. He has the power to make the restless....restful; the weak.....strong; the powerless.....powerful; the low......high; the sinners....free! And so much, much, much more!! Hallelujah and Amen!!
