Written on the Palms of His Hands – Christian Poetry

Hello blogging friends.  Just wanted you to know that I’m still around, but have been busy fighting a ferocious health battle. One that I would prefer soon end.  Wish I could promise to jump back into posting and interacting, but sadly I rarely go near computers.  It aggravates my symptoms too much. Please know this: despite the struggle, I have never quit trusting God’s faithfulness and goodness. The reason for our suffering is often beyond our comprehension.  Our job is simply to trust Him more.  An admonition of which the Lord daily reminds me.

This is a poem I wrote in 2013, but I felt it needed an update.  I pray that it brings blessings and encouragement to others struggling.  I miss you all very much!

Much love in Christ……Sue

Written on the Palms of His Hands

Written on His palms:
The most perfect place to be.
Safe, secure from harm,
Since He’s watching over me.

Carried in His arms:
Just exactly what I need.
Resting in His might,
As upon His strength I glean.

Kneeling at His feet;
Casting all my heavy care.
Knowing all along
That my burdens He will bear.

Standing on His word
And believing unashamed.
Confident to wait,
Hoping in His faithful name.

Close, right by His side,
‘Cause I know He’ll never leave.
Trusting in His grace;
To His love, I’ll ever cleave.

Written on His palms;
Never ever will we part.
Scripted in His hands
And engraved upon His heart.

        Yes, for sure; and until then healing is the children’s bread. Just came through a really bad car crash and it’s only grace which has me walking upright now. God is good. vw

    Much peace to you Sue! You have crossed my mind several times but I figured “life” was keeping you from blogging right now. May His grace and mercy surround you and may you continue to fight the good fight. Many blessings to you!

    Hi Sue,
    Thank you for writing that poem….. That verse from Isaiah 49:16 has been a great comfort to you, me, and countless others over the years…… You have been in my prayers every day as I pass through My Favorites and recognize that in every circumstance our LORD is sustaining us, as He has, indeed, written us on the palms of His hands……
    God’s grace is with you.
