Close Your Eyes and Hold Out Your Hands…

“May you be blessed by the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.”
Psalm 115:15 NIV
The Father longs to bless you.
His very name is Love.
And every good thing you receive
Is from His throne, above.
His aim is not to harm you,
Discourage you to tears,
Or cause your heart to doubt Him,
Or run from Him in fear.
If trials do beset you,
It’s just because He knows
That, in time, it will stretch you
And help your faith to grow.
No, God is not a tyrant,
With rules meant to oppress.
He is a heavenly Father
Who loves to grace and bless.
Is your heart open to Him;
Your hands ripe to receive?
Then trust Him with your whole heart,
Hold out your hands… believe!
“Every good and perfect gift is from above,
coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights,
who does not change like shifting shadows.”
James 1:17 NIV
