these hands can be lifted up to heaven as I sing praise,
join together in applause for a job well done,
rub the back of a child with comforting whispers to still the crying,
dig in the dirt to plant food which will nourish,
work to provide an income, a meal, a clean house for my family,
grasp tight onto the shoulders in a hug to comfort a friend,
wipe away tears
wrap tight to show love
wipe away dirt, signs of a good day of playing outside, from the face of a toddler
clean boo boo's
gathered and folded together in prayer
write words which will comfort, inspire or bring affirmation
These hands which were created to work, may have a little dirt under the nails and may not be perfectly manicured, are what I have to offer. My hands and my heart....God use them. These hands, though small, in God's hands can do mighty things. Use me, oh God!
"We are God's hands......"
