Hands

Some of you may have heard this poem before, but I really wanted to share it. It was read at a Young Women activity that we had the other night, and it really touched me. It is such a good reminder to put or trust in the Lord so he can bless us, and use us as an instrument in his hands.

Hands
A basketball in my hands is worth about $19.
A basketball in Michael Jordan's hands
is worth about $33 million.
It depends on whose hands it's in...

A baseball in my hands is worth about $6.
A baseball in mark McGwire's hands
is worth $19 million.
It depends on whose hands it's in...

A golf club is useless in my hands.
A golf club in Tiger Woods' hands
is a Major Golf Championship.
It depends on whose hands it's in...

A rod in my hands will keep away a wild animal.
A rod in Moses' hands
will part a mighty sea.
It depends on whose hands it's in...

A sling shot in my hands is a toy.
A slingshot in David's hands
is a mighty weapon.
It depends on whose hands it's in...

Two fish and five loaves in my hands
is a couple of fish sandwiches.
Two fish and fives loaves in Jesus' hands
will feed thousands.
It depends on whose hands it's in...

Nails in my hands might produce a birdhouse.
Nails in Christ Jesus' hands
will produce salvation for the entire world.
It depends on whose hands they're in...

As you see now it depends on whose hands it's in
So put your concerns, your worries, your fears,
your hopes, your dreams, your families and your
relationships in God's Hands because,
It depends on whose hands they're in.
