They are strong, they are powerful, they are protecting, they are restoring…

Like the jaws of a mother crocodile they are full of power and they are able to break, to crush, and to defend, yet they are gentle enough to carry, to hold, and to love.

Our God’s hands are mighty to save. He is the strong deliverer. Those same hands that protect,are the same hands that correct. His love for us is seen through his hands, his merciful and graceful hands.

He protects his flock like a shepherd;
he gathers the lambs in his arms
and carries them in the fold of his garment.
He gently leads those that are nursing.
Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand
or marked off the heavens with the span of his hand?
Who has gathered the dust of the earth in a measure
or weighed the mountains on a balance
and the hills on the scales? – Isaiah 40:11-12
