He Holds The Future {Word-Filled Wednesday}

The Watered Soul: He Holds The Future {Word-Filled Wednesday}

He Holds The Future {Word-Filled Wednesday}

Psalm 31-15a

I came across this passage of scripture during my daily reading yesterday. It along with vs.14 just seemed to jump out and grab me.

But I am trusting you, O Lord, saying, “You are my God!” My future is in your hands. Psalms 31:14-15a (NLT)

Life is fragile just like the precious flower this hand holds. Once that little bloom was attached to a stem, which had some roots supplying it’s nutrients. Yet something or someone came along and snatch this precious bloom from the place it once thrived.

At times my life seems to be like that little flower, one moment I’m blossoming in my planted place of comfort. Only to be uprooted by unexpected storms or changes in life. It is at those times that I can not see or understand why God allow these things to be. The darkness of the storm seems to shroud His hand from me.

Yet even in those times, I must remain confident that He indeed is God and my future is secure in His hands.

There is a theme we share today of hands. :) I love your take on it -- it's such a blessing to see the variety of ways God speaks to us through His Word. We're safe in His adventurous hand, aren't we?

What a great picture. Such a fragile little bud in those big hands. Just as God holds us in His hands.

Blessings Wanda...Truly refreshing and inspirational! So thankful I can trust in Him and that I am in His hands! Beautiful reminder! I especially liked your own words of wisdom! Indeed we are fragile and life is fragile just like this fragrant flower we need to BE & STAY connected to our Source that feeds us and gives us His Living Water...even His own life for ours! I can so relate to your analogy to our own lives. My life certainly seems like that too! Thanks for sharing and wording this so well.

Hello Wanda, glad I found your blogpost today. I have been reflecting upon the spiritual dynamics of giving and receiving -- as they are so connected.

The images of the Father giving his Son and of Christ holding on to nothing provide us with profound examples of giving. But, you point also to entrusting all things to his hands. Letting go - opening our hands - is not just abandoning the things we've held but it is entrusting these things to His care.

Thank you!

A wonderful inspiring post Wanda, thank you for sharing, Blessings, JBR

Such a beautiful analogy, Wanda (and picture). It reminds me of a song by Kathy Tracoli (spelling?) several years ago, "My Life Is In Your Hands."

Thank you for these wise words, and for stopping by my blog the other day.

Blessings.

LOVED this post sister!!! "Tho He slay me, yet I will trust in Him." God is with us always . . . He allows our trials in order to strengthen us and increase our faith. How we should rejoice that in times of despair, His grace is sufficient for our every need.
Love, hugs, and prayers,
Cherie

So relevant for me at the moment. Sometimes it's dryness and pain that move us on. At those times it's hard to discern Him but they are the very times that He is working. I trust Him!
