What Do You Have In Your Hand...


What do you have in your hand?

Do you ask this question?
What do I have in my hand...

I think it is a very important one,
We are given a portion each day as we awake,
Sometimes it is so small it feels like a single grain of salt.
Insignificant, tiny, no value.

The Lord has told us not to despise small beginnings;
"For who has despised the day of small beginnings (things)"
Zechariah 4:10

What do you have in your HAND?

I may have but a seed;
So plant it

I may have but a simple grain of salt;
Flavor your next bite of food

I may have a child's hand in mine;
Hold it tight and place a nugget in its palm

I may have a wadded up Kleenex filled with tears;
Lay it next to your night stand, as joy comes in the morning

I may have material and a button;
Sew a creation to bless someone

I may have a cup of flour and sugar;
Bake a cookie or cake and share it

Take what you have and ask God to bless it;
Multiplication comes from the Lord.


How can I have a ready hand?
How can I know what is in my hand?
Put your hand in His and just start opening and closing what is
Placed there, as long as it is a gift from above;
Use it...

Tell me, What is in your hand?

Wonderful thoughts, Roxy. Yes- I have always lived by the saying Hands to work and heart to God. I do think our hands should always be open to what God has to offer. xo Diana

I love the post Rox; it is true, we are always on the same page aren't we. The Lord gives each of us a gift and a treasure; amazing things are waiting in the small and simple.
Love ya,
Pam
