Open Hands

I am facing a hard new corner of my story. If it is analyzed too much it quickly becomes scary, unmanageable, a mountain too big to climb. I am choosing to face this one differently though; with open hands. Hands open to whatever God has for me and /knowing/ He will make good come of it.

In a beautiful song, Open My Hands, Sara Groves sings the words that ring true in the depths of me right now.

“I believe in a blessing I don’t understand. I’ve seen rain fall on the wicked and the just. Rain is no measure of His Faithfulness. He withholds no good thing from us.”

-Sara Groves

I covet your prayers this week for peace and comfort over my family as we have hard talks and make tough decisions that I don’t feel ready for. Jesus will meet us there.

  1. I’m sorry that hard decisions have arrived. Wishing you and your family peace as you try to arrive at the right decision, whatever that is.

    You have shared so much of your life with others. I really appreciated how you offered to contact my niece when I’d mentioned that she was having a tough time with something you knew about.

    I’m hoping that others will now reach out to you. Blessings to you and your family.


  2. Continuing to pray for you and your family…your strength and faith continue to inspire me and others…praying that you would know and feel God’s loving care, presence, peace and comfort with each next step and each next decision.
