God of Safety and Security, Risks and Spontaneity –
We thank you that you have chosen to give us life. We thank you that we can commit our lives to your care. We thank you that you hold our lives and this whole world in the palm of your hands.
We confess that we have tried to take our lives in our own hands. We confess that we have made decisions about our lives that have ignored the places your hands would guide us. We confess that we have – at times – walked away from the care of your hands.
As we consider your final statement on the cross at Calvary, we see a picture of your commitment to God and to us. This last word was spoken before you took your last breath signifying your total surrender to the will of God.
Father, into thy hands, I commit my spirit.
You chose to entrust your life into the hands of the Almighty. We may never understand completely why and to be honest, we have often shunned that level of trust BUT you have shown us that in life and death, in joy and sorrow, in wealth and poverty, in health and sickness, in hope and despair, we can place our lives in the care of your mighty hands.
Your hands will not fail us.
Your hands will not fumble us.
Your hands will not forego their commitment to us.
Great is the faithfulness of your hands!
Thank You Lord God for your careful, comforting, and caressing hands. Thank you Lord God for your purposeful, powerful, and playful hands. Thank you Lord God for your generous, guiding, and giving hands.
Lord, may we always seek to commit our mind, body, soul, spirit, and strength to your hands. May our hands possess the characteristics that show to the world that we are witnesses to what we have experienced by your hands.
And when we fall short in our commitment, may we feel the loving presence of your hands gathering us, carrying us, and hovering over us until we are in the palm of your hands – until we are in the place you have reserved for us to be in your hands.
IN THE NAME OF THE ONE WHOSE HANDS WILL NEVER LEAVE US NOR FORSAKE US… AMEN.
