The Palm of the Master’s Hand – A Poem about Trust

The Palm of the Master’s Hand is a place of safety and calm, a place where we are shielded from the storms of life that rage in the world around us. It is a place of retreat for the Christian to rest and gather strength to face the battle. For where could we be more safe than held close within the hands of God?

The Palm of the Master’s Hand

 I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. John 10:28

The Palm of the Master's Hand scritpure

One after another like snowflakes

The trials keep tumbling down.

Sometimes hope disappears into silence

As the snowflakes cover the ground.

I forget as I stand there thinking

As it seems to cover my dreams,

There is a God Who is watching o’er me,

And the fear is the Enemy’s scheme.

Sometimes when I wake in the morning,

I feel still surrounded by night,

I forget the One I belong to,

It is not my battle to fight.

I hold onto things so tightly

I forget they are not really mine.

I fail to remember my Father

Makes things beautiful in His own time.

I get blinded by the blizzard around me.

I lose sight of the brightly lit home,

Forgetting there is a strong life-line,

If I hold tightly I cannot roam.

When I take time to look at the snowflakes,

When their difference and intricacy I see,

There is evidence of my dear Maker,

Who has a beautiful purpose for me.

The Palm of the Master's Hand

It is never His purpose to blind me,

To wander helpless is Satan’s plan.

The loving God Who guides my life

Always stands, holding open His hands.

All the wealth of His great treasures,

The abundance of his magnificent stores,

Lie open before me for the taking

If I cling to my Master and Lord.

Every doubt and fear of the blinding storm

Comes from forgetting Who made the Plan.

He will never let go or leave me

When I rest in the palm of His hand.
