I am Trying to Understand…

Some things just don’t go the way we want them to…Sometimes life throws in things we don’t want to deal with. We don’t get what we want much. Life can be unfair and harsh and hard to understand. There are times I want to give up…

But I can’t, because if I give up there’s nothing left to do but die, and because I can’t stop believing that there is a reason and that God’s hands, the “hands that shaped the world, are holding me, they hold me still” and I will never leave them.

May this song bless you as it has me today.

Your Hands ~ JJ Heller

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
You would take my pain away

I am trying to understand
How to walk this weary land
Make straight the paths that crooked 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
Yeah, 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 that shaped the world
Are holding me
They hold me still
Your hands that shaped 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 my world is shaking, heaven stands
When my heart is breaking
I never leave
I never leave your hands

  1. This really blessed me today. Thank you!
    “For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.” Ps. 84:11

    • I love it too! I’m hanging in there – just need to keep telling that to my tooth…or maybe not. I guess it IS hanging in there and that’s part of the problem. :P
