Your Hands by JJ Heller

This is the most beautiful song. I wish I knew how to add a link to the song itself, because it is amazing...haunting yet hopeful. It just moves my soul. And I couldn't have said it better myself. Please read these lyrics carefully....

I have unanswered prayers
I have trouble I wish wasn't there
And I have asked a thousand ways
That You would take my pain away
That You would take my pain away

I am trying to understand
How to walk this weary land
Make straight the paths that crookedly lie
Oh Lord, before these feet of mine
Oh Lord, before these feet of mine

When my world is shaking
Heaven stands
When my heart is breaking
I never leave Your hands

When You walked upon the Earth
You healed the broken, lost, and hurt
I know You hate to see me cry
One day You will set all things right
Yea, one day You will set all things right

When my world is shaking
Heaven stands
When my heart is breaking
I never leave Your hands

Your hands
Your hands that shape the world
Are holding me, they hold me still
Your hands that shape the world
Are holding me, they hold me still

When my world is shaking
Heaven stands
When my heart is breaking
I never leave You when...

When my world is shaking
Heaven stands
When my heart is breaking
I never leave...I never leave
Your hands

When my world is shaking..HEAVEN STANDS! Again, referring to my second favorite book in the world, my Synonym Finder: Stand: last, continue on, continue to exist, persist, endure, be steadfast, be constant, be permanent, remain

How comforting to know that when MY world is falling apart, crumbling and shaking like a violent earthquake, heaven remains constant. One of my favorite names of God in the Bible is
I AM. Not I was. Not I will be. I AM.

He is.

Constant.

Steadfast.

Permanent.

And if that doesn't give me Hope, nothing will.

We talked about this in our devotions at work on Wednesday - such a good reminder! Read Psalm 46 again - totally along those same lines!
