Empty Hands, Open Heart

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

“Listen to the sound of my pleading
when I cry to You for help,
when I lift up my hands
toward Your holy sanctuary.”
Psalm 28:2 HCSB
 
See me lift them up, Lord -
My open, empty hands.
I’m ready to accept, now,
Your sovereign, loving plans.
 
My own I now surrender;
I’d held them oh, so tight.
And only now have realized
How futile was the fight.
 
I’ll sacrifice them to You -
My hopes, and plans, and dreams.
And yield to Your direction,
No matter what it means.
 
For I know when I open
My heart and hands to You,
Whatever, Lord, You ask of me,
You’re there to see me through.

I do consider all the ideas you've introduced on your post.
They are very convincing and can certainly work.
Still, the posts are too quick for newbies. May just you please extend
them a little from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.

It is appropriate time to make some plans for the future
and it's time to be happy. I have read this post and if I could I want
to suggest you few interesting things or advice. Perhaps you
can write next articles referring to this article. I want to read more things
about it!
