Open Hands

Every hospital stay of Jerard's has been a teaching time of my Abba to me.
Life is hard.
It is hard to be a Christian, but it is too dull to be anything else! (B. Manning)

"Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, "This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me."

I need to have Open Hands
Giving Thanks In All Things
Hard things befall
Giving Thanks
In the Eating
In the Breaking
In the Unknown
In the Hard
Giving Thanks
Breaking Bread
He Sustains

"When Jesus comes into our lives with his scandalous cross in the form of mental anguish, physical suffering, and wounds of the spirit that will not close, we pray for the courage to "stand fast a little" against the insidious realism of the world, the flesh, and the devil." (B. Manning)

Open hands....letting go of all rest safely in His hands...Ahh the joy of knowing He knows my name, He rejoices over me with joy
